Move back to AK, so your daughter can truly know the state and all of its' wonders before she gets married and has children, and needs to move somewhere to fulfill family obligations like you did.

My Grandmother taught me family obligation, but she also taught me to be where my heartfelt good and where I was content. She was a true believer in "get on with YOUR life". You are married to your partner, not your family, that is the way God wanted it to be. I never argued with Grandma, she just plain made sense all the time.

I was blessed, I love where I landed with my ex smile

I live in the same town I grew up in. I moved away once but found I missed it.

I left SW PA in 64.I have been back maybe 6 times, three for family funerals. My son and daughter live there and my brother is in my folk's old home in hospice care.
In the summer I can stand about 3 days of that heat and humidity before I have to leave.

I lived in 8 places before I graduated high school. 7 of them I have not been back since leaving. The 8th I lived in 2 times, once after high school and go visit every fall to hunt deer. It hasn't changed a ton. Gotten a little older and dumpier in spots, newer and shinier in other spots. I love the place.

Born where I live now.
Parents got divorced when I was little, lived a couple yrs at grammys farm.
Mom remarried so a few moves, all within 100 miles of birthplace.

Am a few hrs from Chicago, so is hassle to go and see concerts there.

Would like to live within 2 hrs of Chicago, but on a creek w woods. NW Indiana.
Wimmins big in da region though.

Central sucks.

I was born and raised in San Francisco. In late 1968 I left San Francisco and the not so great state of California never to return other than holidays with family or funerals. Now that they're all dead there is absolutely no reason why I would ever step foot across the border into the Socialist Republic of Kalifornia.

I go back at least once a month, still have a place there and would've moved back by now if it wasn't for work, still love everything about the place other than the lack of jobs/economy and no interest into commuting into the surrounding bigger towns.

I was born and raised in New Orleans. When we had a child in 1992, there was no way we were going to raise him there during the middle of the crack wars. We hit a high of 424 homicides in 1994 with a population of approximately 484,000. Our son made his first homicide scene when he was 3 months old. We also had a couple of mortally wounded dope dealers dumped out of a car about two blocks from our house, which was in the safest neighborhood in town. It rained bullets every New Years’ Eve from celebratory gunfire. Life in that town generally revolved around food, beverage, music, Mardi Gras, festivals, and, at the time, a crappy pro football team.

New Orleans was, and remains, a very dysfunctional city in terms of governmental services and crime. It has become more gentrified since Hurricane Katrina, with McMansions replacing older hurricane-damaged houses in Lakeview (including the one we sold when we moved) and high-end renovations being undertaken in previously transitional or bad neighborhoods. Property values have greatly appreciated, resulting in higher taxes without any appreciable enhancement that I can see in terms of services. (Of course, the pandemic has killed tourism, so the future is bleak without “free” money from the feds.) The crime rate is lower than when we left, although crime generally has gone down nationwide.

My mom is still alive, and I get down there to see her and my sister, and to visit old friends and colleagues. I can sleep in my old bedroom if I want, and I left some stuff there so I can travel light. I made it to the Jazz Festival three years ago, and my wife and I enjoyed Mardi Gras this year. (We did get rear ended while driving a rental car, but that is another story.) Our son regularly visits his grandmother and aunt, but he thanks us for moving whenever he returns to Wyoming.

We could never live there again. We much prefer the wide open spaces, mountains and woods.

Born in Montana, Dad moved us to Wisconsin when I was 15 to help his Father on the century old dairy farm. Dad's brother got sick and he sent me to Montana to help him out when I was 18. Dad had a farm accident so I moved back to Wisconsin to help out. Older brother took over the farm and I went to college and after graduation took a job in Bakersfield CA and the company relocated me to Prescott AZ. Brother got in a fight with Dad and left the farm. Dad asked me to come home and farm with him. Been on the farm ever since.

I live 3 blocks from where I grew up. I moved away at 17 but a good job offer brought me back to my hometown 11 years later. Bought a home in the same neighborhood as my youth because it's still a nice area. So my kids all went to the same elementary school I did and now 4 grandkids go to that same school.

Lived in either New York City or Air Force bases until I was in high school in NW Montana. After college graduation, I banged around Colorado, the Bay Area, Pukeatopia, but always with an eye toward the Flathead. Finally made the homecoming stick well enough about 20 years ago, there have been lots of changes, but I can't imagine "home" being anywhere else on the planet.

Wolf man Jack. He was great.


I'd rather die in a BAD gunfight than a GOOD nursing home.
