In another thread Jimmy Snyder asked someone: Since everyone knows the answer, I decided to start a new thread about it. Work takes people lots of different places. How far do you live (short work-related jaunts don't count) from where you grew up (say, went to high school)? Right now I live about 1500 km (930 miles) from Ingersoll Ontario, but I have lived both farther and closer since joining the working world. Farthest: about 3200 km (2000 miles).
