    Where have you lived?

    I was thinking that many of our paths may have crossed through the years. Thought it might be interesting to share where we have lived, and if you like, what years you were there.

    No set rules to defining what "lived" means. I'm thinking of places where you might have spent 6 months or more of your life. That would include someplace where you vacationed for a month on six different times, that's long enough to have gotten to know a place pretty well and feel you have lived there. But someone might feel that a 3-4 month stay somewhere qualifies too.

    (Edited into format being used by others)

    Belington, WV 1954-1973
    Morgantown, WV 1973-1989
    Melbourne, FL 1973-1977 (summers) plus a dozen vacations 1977-1997
    Madison, WI (area) 1989-2008

    Born and raised in East Central CT from 1946 to 1966
    2 years in Key West Fl 1966 through 1967
    5 years in Virginia Beach VA from 1967 to 1972
    Been back here at the start in CT since 72 except for 1 year in Orlando FL 1998 to 99

    Those are the fixed locations but I have wobbled around a bit. Been in every state except Hawaii. Been to Cuba, Hati and Japan. None of the wobbling amounts to more than a couple of weeks at a time.

    I'll play. Born in Oxnard, CA and lived there till '86. Moved to Port Hueneme, CA and lived there till '88 (our place in Port Hueneme was a good 100 yards outside of Oxnard's city limit) then we moved back to Oxnard and have been here since. We don't move around much. My great great grandfather moved to Oxnard in the 1870s (actually it didn't have a name at that time but it was in what is now Oxnard) and we've never seen a reason to leave. My wife was born and raised in Ventura, CA and lived there till we were married in '83 which is when she moved to Oxnard (Ventura is across the river from Oxnard).

    That's a near-hit for me. My father-in-law lived in Germantown, MD from the mid-70s through the early-90s. Visited there many times. That's when it was well away from the DC metro area, with several miles of green fields between it and Gaithersburg, with a growing town beginning to form around Montgomery Village.

    He lived right behind a place on 355, a couple of miles south of the I-270 exit, behind a place that sold apples and cider, painted up like a big cider barrel.

    The Germantown exit off of I-270 was just a dinky little stop with a gas station and a little store, where we always stopped and bought ice cream for our kids.

    Traffic was very light all the way to Gaithersburg or north to Frederick.

    A few years in Yuma, AZ, which I deeply regret.

    At various times in my life, a few months of the year in Guadalajara, KS, and Mille Lacs.

    I see some overlap with CACycling. I used to work for a contractor for the Navy, primarily at Pt. Mugu and some at Port Hueneme. Any chance you worked at either? I also see fairly close with Madmaxx in the Tidewater area and Artkansas in the Coachella Valley.

    Hometown boy here.

    Rochester, NY 1957—

    That said, places that interest me seem to be the polar opposite of growing up on a Great Lake. I've looked at NM, AZ and NV. On my CO trip this summer, I'll be looking at the Front Range cities too. Will I Move? Probably not, but it's fun to think about.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.
    The perfect day: Riding a bike to the library.—Peter Golkin


    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.
