    Where are you from??

    We talk so much about the airports/prices, our weather etc it might be fun to hear where we are all from....
    i certainly understand if you don't want to participate, some may not be comfortable giving out detailed info ....

    We'll start, Rob and I are from RI. We are transplants from north of Boston.
    any fellow RI'ers out there? These are the only states we have lived in.

    its only for fun😄

    Toronto, Ontario, Canada but I've done spins in all of Canada, good chunks of Europe, the U.S. and Middle East. After Toronto, Aruba and Paris, the Mediterranean Costa del Sol is one of my favourite places in the world.

    We're from Quincy, (pronounced Quinzee) Massachusetts. Summers are spent mostly in Gilmanton, NH. Both Tom and I were born in Quincy and have lived and worked in the city our whole lives. Is that a townie?

    Jon and I are from Woodbridge, VA. Its a suburb about 25 miles south of Washington DC. We are both born and raised in this area; the land of horrific traffic right on I-95. I grew up in the next town over, next to Quantico Marine Corps base. We tried the city life in Arlington, VA for almost 2 years, but it wasn't for us so we came back to Woodbridge.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Paul and I are from MA ....me, Waltham.....Paul, Watertown.
    We bought our home in Waltham and raised our son there.
    We bought some land in Waterville Maine, abutting Colby College with the hopes of building a house there for when we retired.
    We also bought a fixer upper on the Mesalonskee in Waterville.
    We retired in 2008, sold the fixer upper and the land and moved to Lakeland, Fl.
    And here we are............
    Dear son and family just built a new home in York where we plan on being for a month every July.
    (if we can find a cat sitter)

    Cathy and I were both born and raised in Syracuse, NY and still live here to this date. Our cold weather, below freezing, starts to set in around early November and can hang in there until early April, all while averaging 120" of snow. This being said, it's not hard to imagine why we take every opportunity to travel to Aruba. Our goal is to someday spend 3-4 months there. Fingers crossed...
