    Probably about a dozen, but most were during my early 20's (single guy). I've moved through three countries though.

    Yeah, I go to UWO, though I have no idea where Hartland is (which is the case with 98% of Wisconsin cities/towns/villages/pair of huts.

    Heh... Here goes a list, all because my father didnt want to pay bills. Here is the order that I can remember or what I've been told since birth... Most of my moves have been moving in with family.

    Geneva, IL
    Aurora, IL
    Red Bay, MS
    Birmingham, AL
    Aurora, IL
    Birmingham, AL
    Jacksonville, FL (2 moves in Jacksonville at this time)
    Middlesex, NC
    Birmingham, AL (2 moves but same apt complex)
    Jacksonville, FL (13 moves, 4 recent within the past 3 years to the present)

    It sucked. At one time we averaged packing up and heading out every 3-4 months.

    To this day, I own very little and I do not hang anything on my walls or doing other such "decorative" tasks.

    Incurable, 6-18 months prognosis, survivors longer than 3 years less than 1% chance.
    Don't like what I say? Ignore me.

    I hate moving. I just moved last month and I'm tired of looking at boxes and I keep unpacking but it doesn't seem to make a dent.
    I never moved growing up. My parents moved into the house I grew up in before I was born and lived there until I was out of college. That was in Los Angeles. On my own, I've only moved when I've had to for a job or the apartment building was sold or other things.
    I've lived in Washington, D.C., Columbus, GA, and now Knoxville. I only moved because I hated the apartment I was in and got a good deal on a great condo.

    Born in Bay City, Michigan... moved 4 times within the city.

    Moved to Jacksonville, Florida the day after graduation - lived there for several months.

    Move to Apply Valley, California - lived there for a couple months.

    Moved back to Michigan, to Saginaw. Lived there until 2001.

    In 2001, I moved to Sarasota, FL, and have lived there since - in the same apartment.

    No plans on moving anytime soon.
