I've wanted to leave my hometown since I was 19. I'm 50. I still live in my hometown(Bellingham Washington).

And yet, I wanted to move back to my hometown since about 2002 (been in Vegas since 1990).

Most of my childhood friends we're born and raised there and still remain.
I don't think they initially stayed for any other reason than family and whatnot.
At some point they probably realized It's pretty nice town and surrounding area and decided there wasn't a good reason to leave.

I know the Wizard recently visited the area and was very impressed he was very surprised to find out that's where I grew up.

It's not really a secret, but I really don't like the desert. I don't hate Vegas I'm fairly certain I wouldn't miss it for the most part.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪

Why haven't you left? I left mine at 18 and have never returned.

I feel like for me, more travelling makes me more inclined to leave where I am. Some people hate travel though.

The story is not going to be exciting, but boring. Trust me.

My TV is trying to sell me Duluth underwear and I'm nowhere near Duluth. Then Wolverine gets thrown into a Japanese bathtub for a scrubdown under penalty of death.
