    The "Where Do You Hail From and Where Do you Hang Your Hat Now" Thread

    This thread is so you can tell us where you grew up and also where you live in Thailand presently. If you just visit Thailand and still live back home, tell us where you "hang your hat" when you are here.


    Me? Born and raised in the Edgewater neighborhood of the Windy City - Chicago!

    Now I stay in Bangkok.

    Born in Bordertown, South Australia, grew up and lived for most of my life in Kununurra, Western Australia, now live in the Bay of Plenty New Zealand.

    Spent 1 year in bangkok and whenever back that way split my time between bangkok, the beach somewhere and the wifes village in ubon ratchatani.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Born in Indiana, USA.
    Moved to Ohio before I could walk.
    To Pennsylvania before I could write.
    To New Jersey before I could fcuk.

    Left home at 17 and been running since.

    To Tokyo before I could drink.

    When I couldn't run any farther, I stopped in Nong Khai. If I went any further, I'd be running back.
