    My town is pretty close to Boston, so it never occurred to me to go away to college, plus there was that cute boy who lived the next street over, so I commuted to college while living in my parents' house.
    I have at least two neighbors (not quite sure about a third) who are living in the houses where they grew up. I'm fairly certain neither served in the military or attended college, so I believe they have lived their entire lives in the same homes.

    The house I was born in, until we moved, around age 7.
    The house we moved to, until at age 22, I was asked to move into my grandmothers, after she passed and a neighbor tried to break in.
    That house, which became mine, until I was asked to move into this one, to care for the cat, and sort/find stuff after my friend/boss died.
    So four.

    This is fascinating. Born and raised until 19 suburban brick colonial. College- one dorm and one apartment and the rented room while Student Teaching, an apartment with my first job in small city, house in rural area when married- 1973...so 6 different moves. Not bad at 72. I and husband plan to stay here until we cannot.

    Between 17-20. Not sure as I think I am missing some from my count. States include east coast to west coast with a couple in between.

    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I've had 18 different addresses in my life. I hope to move at least once more.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    When I first saw this thread I thought it was about people like Iris Lilies who have more than one home at the same time.

    15 all told... I used to love to move every couple of years to catch a taste of all the very different neighborhoods in the Portland area.

    I've been down in San Diego this week, staying in my sister's house just for a change of pace. I brought a sweatshirt I bought at Powell's Books back in the 90's. Two nights in a row the servers where I went to dinner were like "Portland! Such a cool city! Are you from there???"
