Kent County, MI
Ottawa County, MI (current)

Santa Clara, CA (for only three months, but it’s where I was born)
DuPage, IL

We don’t do counties in Aus, but I’ve lived in four states: born in and most of my life in Victoria, but also in New South Wales (right on the border with Vic), far north Western Australia, and now in Far North Queensland.

All in New York (although I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Texas): Chemung, Clinton, Dutchess, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Orange, Putnam, St Lawrence, and Ulster.

These are all I remember:

King (WA)
Maricopa (AZ)
Pulaski (AR)
Lincoln Parish (LA)
Ouachita Parish (LA)

The other in Dodge County, Wisconsin

I own a small place in Sarasota, Florida as well.
