Heh.  Glad my response in this thread matched by response in the old one.

I've lived in these counties long enough to have drivers' licenses and voter registration:

Maryland:  Anne Arundel & Howard
Michigan:  Ingham
New Hampshire: Hillsborough
Ohio:  Franklin, Hamilton, & Warren

I've also spent full summers in Mackinac Co, MI and Dutchess Co, NY.

I worked full-time in Middlesex Co, MA and Prince George's Co, MD, for several years each, so it feels like I lived there, too.

New London County, CT
San Francisco County, CA
Charleston County, SC
City of Norfolk, VA
Berkeley County, SC
Pickens County, SC

I may have also technically lived in San Diego County, CA very early on...

Just curious, what was it about coal country that you found appealing?

It's that those towns manage to combine the following rather attractive traits:
- Old buildings/old architecture
- Relatively low cost of living
- Dense development, such that the town is walkable
- But the town is also small, so you can also get in the car and leave it to go elsewhere easily without contending with traffic and such
- And relatively close to home, such that visiting friends and family is not onerous

This is only viable as a retirement theory though, because such towns lack any decent nearby employment and are probably not a particularly good place to raise kids either.

I also don't see my soon to be bride going for it (this is a significant change that has happened since my post in the old thread which is also why my tune about relocating sooner has changed).

Thanks. Walkability isn't a major factor for me. But I understand what you're saying.

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 count the time, just under a year, spent in Greene County, MO as living there, despite the fact that my legal domicile was in McClain County, OK at the time. I consider that if I'm sleeping in the same bed repeatedly, I'm keeping a large amount of my stuff there, and I have to sweep the floor myself, I'm "living there", even if I'm not voting or paying taxes there.

I've lived in four counties: Oklahoma OK, McClain OK, Greene MO, and Cleveland OK.

You need to get out more.   :-/

Nah, I'm good. I spend a lot of my time in surrounding areas anyway, and my county is larger than some states (both in size and population).

There's no crime in not moving a lot. I'm very happy to live in the county where I grew up, and have no desire to live anywhere else.

5, all in Illinois.  But two of those are because I lived away from home for high school and for college.  Four are the counties that form the four corners of Chicagoland (no one really calls it that) :)
