Default How far do you live from your birth place?

I don't mean the EXACT spot where you were born Distance from your home town will suffice, LOL


I was reading that a bit more than half of all Americans live within 50 miles of their home town (or birth place) No matter if they've moved around before settling in, as 'settled' adults, they end up close to 'home'

So, how about you? Need not be American to reply.......I'm interested in how other countries stack up to these stats too

*poll coming*

Yep. Within twenty five miles. We plan on moving out of state and purchasing a house in Florida, but not until my mother is gone.

I forgot to answer!

I live within the 50 miles (it's around 40-45, never really mapped it!) of my home town. Close enough to visit, far enough away to be removed from drama

I was born in Durham, NC and spent most of my childhood in NJ. I now live in Pembroke, MA. I have basically moving north up Interstate 95 for my whole life!

Now it's time to figure out how to start moving back toward the south.....

I live about 25 miles away from my hometown. Though I've lived over 5000 miles away from my hometown
