I have lived in two counties in my life.

I lived in (and was born in) Hamilton County, Tennessee for approximately the first 6 months of my life. Then my family moved to Dalton, Georgia (Whitfield County), and that is where I have lived ever since. My dad actually grew up in the Dalton area, but they (he and my mom) temporarily lived in Chattanooga when I was born due to work.

But we still go to Chattanooga very often, many times at least once a week. It is a pretty short drive on Interstate 75 going northwest and we are up there.

One.
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.

I've only lived in one county (Monroe, NY), but I've traveled plenty. I think it can be harmful to neither move  nor travel with at least some frequency. Most people I know who haven't traveled much or moved at all have a very insular worldview; it would do them good to spend some time in different states, countries, environments, etc.

I think, in general, we Americans move too much and travel too little.

I don't think so of myself personally, but of the general population --- absolutely! Always wanting bigger and better and not taking time to travel.

+1

There is a county called Yolo? Ew.

And a town.



5 counties; all in WI
(let's do it alphabetically)
Dane
Eau Claire
Milwaukee
Price
Wood

I have done a LOT of traveling in the last five years and seen a lot of places, good and bad.  But in all my travels, I still feel drawn to my 'home' region of the continent.  I think there remains only a relatively small area across three Midwest states (and one Canadian Province) that I would want to live.  There are a number of cultural and climate factors I could cite.  But the stupidest one that I would not feel at home without is this:


I wouldn't want to settle some place where these are not plying the local fresh waters.  Granted, they have a very large range these days:

But I'd probably pass on a fairly decent career opportunity outside of these areas.
