I wonder where you were born and where you now live.

I was born in France and I now live in Salt Lake City Utah. USA.
In between, I lived and worked in 27 different countries.
This coming December, I shall celebrate my 30th years in the USA.
In the USA I lived in Houston Texas, several places in California , then Portland Oregon ( my favorite place of all) and now in Salt Lake City Utah..
What this your journey?

Born and raised just south of St. Louis MO. Been to a lot of places vacationing and fighting fire, but I’ve only lived here. Now raising my family just a little bit further south of St. Louis.

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.

Born in Maryland, moved to California as a child and spent most of my life here, but at 17 my family moved to Oregon for a year and I loved it there. But things brought us back to California. Then I went to Casper, Wyoming. Job issues brought me back to California. I hate California and will move to either Oregon or Wyoming ASAP.

Pine Chopper…....

Spent more than a little time in and around Casper.

Wonderful Country…..........for those of us who have developed a true appreciation for that type of country.

It is TRUE…......you can see the edge of the world from there.

I spent two weeks in Casper.
When I was there the whole town was for sale, extremely depressing.
I would love to retire in Southern Oregon but I am stuck in Utah as my wife refuses to move anywhere else.
