Travel is in my DNA. My family moved a lot. I went to 16 different schools in three states. I was born in New Kensington, PA (Pittsburgh) Go Steelers!
My father was (still is) a golf pro in the tri-state area of NY, PA, & OH. Well, it's cooollllddd up there so my mom finally got her way and we settled in Orlando in Aug. 1977 (I graduated from Winter Park HS - 1980).
The moving around might have bothered some families but not ours...we liked going to new places so by the time I was 10, I had flown alone quite often. Traveling became a normal way of life for me. I learned not to be a pack-rat and picked-up some great travel habits (my mom's words still echo in my head, "if it doesn't fit, it doesn't go!"). Good thing, because I joined the Navy 1981 and remained active duty until 2008 when I retired as Senior Chief.
