for me - 7 days on Hoilday a few times.
Home is where the heart is.
Not counting the 2 years I went to private school, I went to California for 3 weeks on vacation when I was 18. I typically never go away for more than a week at a time.
If you'd like, I can provide a detailed itinerary for the next year along with my address and a key to the front door.
Don't forget to provide the security code as well. Thanks for the chuckle!
3 weeks. Went to Atlanta for the Olympics. Met my beautiful wife there. I've never been away from her for more than 5 days, and we talked everyday.
I've never left my basement.
I don't think that I've ever been away for more than 1.5 months.
I think you meant to post
or perhaps you wanted to tantalize us with the possibility of listening to Frogman's "Ain't Got No Home"!
I am to thinking my away from home is much and plentiful.
I never been home.
Never been home?? "Home is where you hang your hat."
This all depends on what one means by "home". I have been travelling/moving around for the last 6 years. I make an effort to rarely stay anywhere for more than 6 to 12 months. Given life is so short the idea of settling down for an extended period of time terrifies me.
On a land based "sea tour" in the USN, for a 3 year period, I was gone 4-6 weeks at a time, back for 5-30 days, and in the last year, I was gone 80% of the time. :-/ Those days are long over thankfully.
I would say somewhere around 8 months. When I returned, home didn't quite feel like "home".
Does deployment count?
What if he doesn't own a hat? Or a hanger? Or a head?
I would assume that the definition of "home" would be not just where you are living, but the place where your emotional ties are, or, if you are younger and haven't yet left 'home', the place where you grew up with your parents.
In this context, I imagine it would, yes.
Id say deployment counts!
As far as growing up, for military brats a home can be a zillion places and still be under their parents roof, so to speak.
Guess then the bottom line is one's homeland.
But for kin, or nearest thing to it, Robert Frost said this about home:
Maybe that was only back in the day. Today perhaps we wouldnt think to take a hired hand back in at the end of his life; we too often seem not to have that much respect for the people who work for us.
4 weeks. Sleep away camp. Hated every second of it. I'm a homebody for sure.
14 days from home base
Wisdom, Robert Frost and some food for thought. Very well said.
it seems that it depends a lot on the definition of 'home',
if you go to school, does your room there become your 'home' for the time being?
what about military or civil service? prolonged job-related periods at a specific location?
or are we talking just about vacations?
