I was actually born in Iowa! :eek: But only lived there for 9 months of my life.

My family transfered back to Dallas Texas where both my mom and dad are from. (I grew up there and went to school there)

DH and I moved to Denver Colorado (for jobs).

Then back to Dallas Texas (jobs again)

Then 2 years ago we relocated here to the Atlanta area (once again for jobs).

Hey, Sonja is a fellow Midwesterner, even if only for a few months!

Let's see: W. Va., Delaware, Ohio, Texas, Delaware again, Florida, Louisiana, Nebraska, Illinois, then back to Nebraska.

Dad worked for duPont, and got transferred a lot. Everything from the first Nebraska move to present was on my own, either for school or work. DW can't grasp the concept of moving so many times. Born and raised in Nebraska, the only move she made was to Illinois and back with me. (At least she stayed with me!) :bride:

I was born & raised in Metairie, LA......moved around quite a bit as a teen from city to city, but always in the New Orleans area. I met Gina in 87 or 88, and we felt adventurous and took it to Atlanta, GA for about a year...but that ol'cajun soul was telling me to go home. We got married and stayed around for about 8-10 years and got the bug again, so we moved to LasVegas....again, after a year or so...I just couldnt wait to get back home....Im now old enough to have learned to ignore that bug next time its starts biting me....this is home. Im a Louisiana man through and through.

Born and raised in NJ and still here. Probably won't be here forever unless this state does something about taxes and such. It's really a nice state. The weather here is pretty good. Traffic can be horrific, but I live in an area that hasn't become too congested......yet. I live in the woods, I can be at the beach in less than 30 minutes or in the mountains in an hour and a half.

There are worse places to be in a rut.I used to love it up there, I just used to run with the wrong type of people. If you spend to much hanging out with the Ralph's crowd, eventually you find yourself thinking you either need to leave or get ready to have a stay in blountsville:rolleyes1 .Needlss to say, I headed back to Florida.

That was our goal. We actually owned an acre of property near Ellijay(Cherry Log) and sold it to purchase the place where we now live. We're real close to FtW without having to suffer the traffic problems. We figure when we actually retire for real, we'll summer in the MH at Track Rock Campground in Blairsville - if it's still there. Beautiful place for sure!!

When we lived in Florida we used to vacation in Ellijay at a cabin on the Whitepath Golf Course. We love that area. We now own a deeded lot in a campground in Cleveland (9 miles out of Helen, 30 miles east of Blairsville) where we keep our motorhome.

We have a couple of condos in Bradenton, FL so we want to sell the house in Cumming, the condos in Bradenton and flip flop between Cleveland and Bradenton. I would love to own a deeded lot in Bradenton (http://www.holidaycoverv.com/home.htm) and no longer own any real estate!!

This is also a beautiful rv campground in the Georgia Mountains to check into: http://www.rvmountainvillage.com/

It is striking when reading this thread how many people, like myself, are originally from Buffalo, NY or the surrounding area and have left. I read once that if everyone from Buffalo had stayed there, it would be one of the 10 largest cities in the country.

I was thinking that same thing! Sarasota/Bradenton, Fl has lots of people who moved there from Buffalo - or at least winter there. I know of at least 7 of my high-school classmates that live in that area. A guy I work with at THD came from my home town of North Tonawanda. I found out his cousin & I were good friends in high-school. Talk about a small world!!

The oddest "Buffalo" thing that ever happened to me was in 1991 when Tampa was hosting Super Bowl XXV - Giants vs. Bills. I worked in downtown Tampa at the time & was out getting some lunch, when all of a sudden I see someone frantically waiving at me & hollering my (maiden) name. I had no idea who he was! He made a bee-line for me, and said "It's me, Debbie! Mike XXXXXX!" That was 20 years after we graduated! Yes, it is a small world!
