    I am curious about how many live near their hometown. Society seems very mobile, and the slow disintegration of families seems to create more people leaving their hometowns for different areas.

    Do you live near your hometown?

    I live IN my hometown. In fact, I moved about fifty feet from the house I grew up in and built my place.

    Sadly, No. I now live about 850 miles from my hometown. Keep thinking about moving back there but not sure if I will live long enough.

    26 miles from my door and the location i was born.

    they'll probably plant some of may ashes somewhere in between, and some of my ashes in the spectacular places i've been priviledged to see because i live in a relatively inexpensive area of the country.

    No way, over 2000 miles from it. 2216 miles to be exact according to Mapquest.

    Born and raised in Lake Charles, LA and live in Spokane Valley, WA now.

    Not even close. Unfortunately. I may not settle back there, but I'll be closer. Hate this place.

    Nope. 1000 miles away. I miss it sometimes because of friends and family left behind but Tennessee is a pretty nice place to live. You gotta go where the work is.
