I was thinking about this earlier (while listening to the Macarena no less), and I realized
that it was mildly interesting how some peoples Hometowns and birthplaces are
the same place,but they are'nt with others, and of course than I started wondering how
many of my fellow ATSers fit into either category.


For me it's not.
I was born in Portland, Oregon, but I only lived there until I was about two,
at which point I moved to my hometown, the place I've lived the last 17 years, Everett, Washington.

So is your hometown the same place you were born?

I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio.

When I was 8 I moved to Wolverhampton, England for 6 years (Dad's job).

Moved back to Ohio, went to college in Athens, OH, and now I live and work in Denver, Colorado.

Ohio will always be home though...

I don't have a home town, I guess the closest thing to that is where I live now. My family moved all the time when I was a kid, so I went to 22 different schools before I left home.

I was born up near the North West Territories, but that was just because dad was working there at the time. We continued to move from town to town as dad changed job sites or projects.

My Dad was an officer in the Army, and we moved about a million times while I was young. When he was transferred to Ft. Dix, we stayed.
So I call New Jersey my home. I've been in southern Jersey for quite awhile. Just east of Philadelphia, and less than an hour west of Atlantic City.

Well I can start with the obvious. Born in Philadelphia PA.
Then my parents moved, well we all did, to Bally PA.
See that part is easy I know where I am born and where I have lived for forty some years, but the question of home is rather complicated.
When I was ten-eleven years old I we moved to Denmark (the country), for various reasons.
From then on and until September 11th. 2001 I was in a state of "homelessness".
That is twenty eight years with out roots. A long time.

I finally found "home" and moved here in January of 2005.

Home is not a town, or a house, yet.
Home is America. This big magnificent land.

I have thought of Bally as home though my whole life, that is where all my good memories were until recently.

I am rather adaptable, learned that as a sailor of many years.
You make your little cabin into your home, every port becomes your home port, and you learn to appreciate a friendly soul on your path.

So I have made my home here where I am now, but this time I chose it, not a contractor or my parents, long gone.
I chose it. Or did it chose me?
That is what makes it home, a real home.
Where I will end? Who knows. Destiny?
I know whom I want to end with, but that is a whole different story.

Oh, by the way, it is Central Wisconsin, Portage county. For now.

Complicated, kind'a. Adventures, yes.

I was born in Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia.
The Territory is in my blood and i hope to move back there one day with my family.
My hometown now is Adelaide in South Australia, home of one of the best wine regions in the world, which is why i'm here as i work in the wine industry.
Home for me though will always be the Outback of Australia, more specifically Simpsons Gap which was my grandparents cattle station until the early 70's when the government bought the land from my grandparents to turn the whole area into a National Park.
My grandfather was the Park Ranger there for the next 15 years or so until he retired. I had the biggest playground in the world i reckon.

I was born to the daughter of Spanish nobility and Sea Captains who ended up In Havana Cuba, where i was born. (May have been some horse thieves and Gypsies involved)

From Havana we went to Madrid, where we spent 3 years. From there we migrated to this wonderful land called United States, to Florida, where we spent 1 year, then Boston and eventually Cape Cod, the place i call home.
I did spend two years in Phoenix with my mother and brother as many of you know.

My heart is split between the beauty of the Cuban waters which i remember well, and Cape Cod. I will always love them both.
