This is primarily for the adults here for obvious reasons.
I’ve recently reconnected with a bunch of people I grew up with. One of the things I’ve noticed is that most all of them live within a 3-4 mile radius of where we grew up. In our conversations, it seems that quite a number of the people we grew up with are in the same situation, like most of the 8th grade class I knew (approx 50 people). Very few of them have moved away. Some even live in their childhood home. There are a few exceptions like myself. I currently live about 20 miles from my childhood home, and at various times I’ve lived about 1500-2000 miles away. This area is a 2nd ring suburb of a major metropolitan are, not a rural community.
Note that I differentiate where you were raised from where you were born. It’s not unusual for a young family to move a few times initially before finding a “permanent” home.
What’s your situation.
