    Re: How far away do you live from your birthplace?

    Had to vote further but it's not really too far away because I'm in a different state... probably only 150 miles or so.

    Cedar Rapids.

    Even though I was born there, I've only been there a handful of times I can actually remember. Spent most of my days in southern/central Iowa.

    *edit: for me, 60 miles, or an hour and 15 minutes.

    Same farm but across the road from the house I lived in when born.

    Re: How far away do you live from your birthplace?

    Shouldn't "how far away" be a measure of both time and distance? 40 years and 250 miles for me.

    Or 4 hours travel time if I could go back home but we all know you can't go back home except in country western songs.
