Hello All,

I was curious what you tell people when they ask where you are from? Do you go with the place where you grew up? or try to match your license plate? Or do you tell folks you just live in your trailer and wherever it is parked that is home?

The reason I ask is because I have gotten some odd reactions from people when I tell them I live wherever I am parked.

Where I currently reside. No reason to give them a history of where I have lived.

Although we're now legal residents of South Dakota, we always say we're from Ohio. Everyone's always either from Ohio or knows someone from Ohio, so then we start narrowing it down.

I would suppose people are leary of those who claim no roots or arnt in touch with civilization.
