How many counties have you lived in?
« on: August 26, 2018, 06:52:43 AM »

I've lived in 9 counties, listed in chronological order: Polk County, Arkansas; Lonoke County, Arkansas; Chatham County, Georgia; Faulkner County, Arkansas; Johnson County, Missouri; Jackson County, Missouri; Clay County, Missouri; Garfield County, Oklahoma and Tulsa County, Oklahoma. I'm a bit of a vagabond. How many counties have you lived in?

Since my father was in the military, I moved around quite a bit in my childhood. Not so much as an adult.

My list of ten (roughly chronological, but not counting returns to counties where I already lived): Onslow County NC (born there), Otter Tail County MN, Prince William County VA, San Diego County CA (through high school), Santa Clara County CA (college), New Haven County CT (college), Sacramento County CA (summer job), Washington DC (summer job), Falls Church city VA, Arlington County VA (that last one continuously since 1982).

I remember when your profile said you lived in the "armpit of the Mid-Atlantic" (i.e. New Jersey). Was this temporary?

No, Iíve never even been to New Jersey. I meant that satirically towards Virginia as there are quite a few people who hate the state.

Does military service count? I never claimed residence in any of the states I served. Technically, I've never been a resident of a county. Connecticut ditched them 5 years before I was born.

But if you're not pedantic, I can say that I've lived in Hartford, Tolland, and New London Counties. I've served in Tom Green, TX, Monterey, CA, and  Christian, KY; but I'm pretty sure my barracks were in Montgomery, TN. I did a TDY tour at Fort Devens, Mass. but that was less than 90 days and should probably not be counted.

I've lived in 9 counties, listed in chronological order: Polk County, Arkansas; Lonoke County, Arkansas; Chatham County, Georgia; Faulkner County, Arkansas; Johnson County, Missouri; Jackson County, Missouri; Clay County, Missouri; Garfield County, Oklahoma and Tulsa County, Oklahoma. I'm a bit of a vagabond. How many counties have you lived in?

I have established "30-day residency" in Alameda, CA (conceived and currently); Sacramento, CA (born and raised); Santa Clara, CA (lived 24 years), Samsung-dong, Kangnam-gu (worked); and Travis, TX (worked planning to stay) Counties, and just missed the "continuous 30-day" mark working in Keelung, Taipei (but multiple 3- and 4-week stays give me a total time in Keelung greater than the time that I spent in Travis, which I regarded as "where I lived"). We can argue about whether a "Ku" or a "Dong" is the better approximation of a county or burough. Someone better versed in Korean Government than I am can help us out. In any case, it's 5 or 6.


I am not counting Fulton or Kalb, GA or any of the places that I spent only one week at a time for work or vacation.

Defining "lived" as "spent 30 or more consecutive days" - some of these were temporary residencies between moves.
