    WaffleCheeseposted 7 years ago

    I just wanted to know where everyone is from? All the places we've lived? Who knows? We might have something in common.

    I was born in Denver, CO (1981)
    I moved to Evanston, WYO (1986)
    Then I moved to Lakewood, CO (1988)
    Then I moved to Medicine Bow, WYO (1989)
    Then I moved to Murrieta, California (1993)
    Then I moved to Meeteetse, WYO (1998)
    Then I moved to Athens, Greece (2000)
    Then I moved to Nicosa, Cyprus (2002)
    Then I moved to Billings, Montana (2002)
    Then I moved to Provo, UT (2002)
    Then I moved to Arequipa, Peru (2005)
    Then I moved to Boise, ID (2006)
    Then I moved to Provo, UT (2006)
    Then I moved to Orem, UT (2009)

    Anyone have anything in common with that?

      Lawrence, Kansas. Brings back a lot of memories of college. No, I didn't go to KU, but I sure as hell got drunk there A LOT. Been to Madison for "Weed-fest". I didn't smoke there, but I watched all my "friends" get blotto on the "funk". Tulsa, OK just makes me think of red dirt.

    I actually loved moving around so much. So many people I got to meet and so many towns. I lived in Athens which had millions of people, and Meeteetse Wyoming which had only 350 (Where I graduated High School in a class of 16... Loved it!)

              Well, psychos don't tend to follow court orders. In fact I think by definition they tend to play by their own rules. Hope it turned out okay.

          The bridge to Illinois and then up through Nauvoo was incredible. I loved seeing the riverfront houses and the trees. Being from the west, trees are a luxury. (The northwest is an obvious exception)

            I went back for dad's funeral last year. Hadn't been back to Iowa in 7 years. It "is" amazing how much I miss the trees. California has nothing close. Well the mountains, but I'm in Bako. Which is like living in Afghanistan, without the "atmosphere".
