I was once a migrant nuclear worker:

Blacksburg, VA
Gaithersburg, MD
Rockville, MD
Jackson, MS
Atlanta, GA (3)
Vidalia, GA
Little Rock, AR
Granbury, TX
Birmingham, AL

Plus multiple extended business trips of 1-6 months in hotels.

We've been looking for our "last" for the last few years with little luck. Keeping at it, though.

+1 and +1

I'll tell you one thing, though - - I'm never moving again, EVER, if I can help it! I am very, very happy here and with any luck, I will live here for the rest of my life. I don't even want to travel. I'd rather just stay in New Orleans and continue to grow roots.

That said, we still have a Plan B in case of "Katrina II", badly worsening crime, or other reasons giving us no choice but to move.

I've lived in 33 different places on land and aboard two submarines - all by the time I was 34. I've lived in the same house for the past 26 years.

Three villages in Nassau County (Long Island), NY, since 1986, the last of which I have lived since 1989. Two more in New York City (Manhattan) in the 1980s, in college and shortly thereafter. My first year of life, which I don't remember, I lived in Brooklyn (NY), followed by another LI village through 1985-6.

Texas

First 55 years I lived in a number of places but always within ~25 miles of where I was born in "the" downtown Houston hospital. Since then I live a good ways north of that, but still in Texas.

Traveled around the world a number of times but I never lived/visited anywhere for more than a week or so at a time.
