TMI Tuesday #188 - Rambling Edition

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

TMI Tuesday

1. Before the industrial revolution, most people never traveled more than 30 miles from their home. How far from your birth place do you now live?

According to Google maps, I am 1,862 miles from where I was born and 2,018 miles from the town where I actually grew up. I was born in the same small (very small) eastern Washington town that my mother grew up in, but when I was 18 months old, my parents moved to the Seattle area where they bought the home that I lived in until I was 18.

2. What is the farthest distance from home you have you have ever had sex or an orgasm? What is there farthest distance you have traveled from your home to have a sexual encounter?

Well, Seoul, South Korea is about 5,200 miles from "home," and there was a bit of sex that went on during the year I was there, so ... yeah ...

I'm assuming the second part of this question is one focusing on intent - how far have I traveled with the primary intent of having sex? I've not traveled with the primary goal of a booty call, but I've had someone else make a roughly 1200 mile journey to me for a booty call.

3. How many states (or Canadian Provences or your country's geopolitical division) and counties have you had sex and/or an orgasms in?

I don't have a clue ...

I've lived in Washington, California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, Maryland and Illinois, so those are all a sure bet. I've also traveled throughout the U.S. extensively as a SINGLE adult sooo ... *shakes head* ...

Best estimate would be somewhere between 10-15?? Again, that's nothing more than a wild-assed guess.

4. Have you ever had sex in a vehicle? While the vehicle was moving?

I've had sex in a motor home! That counts as a vehicle, right?? But it wasn't moving.

Then there were those few times when I was the giver of the "It's not really sex if you are the President and it's not your wife" sex - while someone WAS driving *snicker*

5. Do you have any travel related fantasy? If so, share, please.

Are we talking travel related sexual fantasy here? No, I don't have any of those, but I do have travel related fantasies! I often long for a trip like Katherine recently took. There are many destinations I'd like to visit at some point - most of them outside of the country - and most of them to places less traveled!

Bonus: On holidays that honor our military do you tend to remember those currently serving or veterans of military service?

This is a bit of a thorn in my side ...

Being that I am a bit of a military "purist," we have just two major holidays here in the U.S. honoring the military, Memorial Day (Decoration Day) and Veteran's Day.

Memorial Day is a holiday of remembrance of those who served, and lost their lives. I honor them on Memorial Day.

Veteran's Day is the holiday designated to show appreciation for ALL of those who have served in the military ... and that is how I celebrate that holiday.

Imagine ... me ... following rules ...

I always hesitate to leave out the ones that ARE serving on Memorial Day. There are so few purists and so few times that we honor them. I just throw them all in there. Sorry if I offended your purity! ;)

Great questions and answers up there!

Bond said...

Fun Q&A today...

I love that you are a purist.

Nolens Volens said...

I get what you are saying about military holidays. You got me beat on birthplace and sex distances. ;)

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Interesting answers. I've done the giving while someone else is driving too! ;-)

Dana said...

Real Live Lesbian, the good news is that I don't hold others accountable to my anal retentive standards, and I kind of like it when you offend my purity!

Bond, well, we know this is one of the very few things that I can claim to be pure with!

Nolens Volens, at one time I lived 2,713 miles from "home" - I keep telling my family I'm getting closer!

Dana said...

Evil Twin's Wife, better the driver be distracted than the one with all of the "control", don't you think??

Vixen said...

#4, you are referring that um, Hummer again, aren't you? ;)


Good way to differentiate bwtn the two holidays. I will have to keep that in mind, good advice.

rockman said...

I have to admit that I stole your idea for my post today. HOpe you dont mind....

Great answers BTW.

Jay said...

Screw having the government tell me when I can and can't honor anyone. I will honor people and the military when I want and how I want. I'm such a rebel. haha ;-)

Leonhart said...

I have a travel-related fantasy.

Teleportation.

TROLL Y2K said...

1200 miles is darned impressive. I woudn't call it a "thorn" but my answer was very similar to yours.

{{ d a n i m o }} said...

wow, some kinda power you've got to make someone drive 1,200 miles for a booty call! ;D i completely understand 'em though; i'd do it. ;P

fun answers. i feel like i learned a lot. ^_^ hehe

All I can do, is shake my head...no comment, no opinion...

Bina said...

I've actually had sex in a moving car, and I wasn't the driver. I mean ACTUAL sex!!

Ahhh, to be young again.

rage said...

That's a long way away from home to have sex/or/orgasm!

Dana said...

Vixen, why yes, that Hummer with a capital "H"!

rockman, I'll take it as a compliment! TMI Tuesday can be a lot of fun!

Jay, you are such a trend setter! Honoring people at random times. Next thing I know you'll be telling me you send love notes in August instead of waiting for Valentine's Day!

Dana said...

Leonhart, teleportation! Damn! Why didn't *I* think of that? I did consider an all-inclusive price for an airline ticket, but dismissed that fantasy as too far fetched.

TROLL Y2K, I tend to be a bit ... ummmm ... protective (?) of holidays honoring the military.

{{ d a n i m o }}, what's even more impressive was that the person who traveled 1200 miles was my ex-husband, and it was 5 years after I had last seen him!

Dana said...

buffalodick, but you *did* leave a comment!

Bina, in a moving car?? Now I'm impressed!

rage, when the Army sends you somewhere far away for a year, the alternative - no sex/orgasm for a year - isn't a very nice thought!

katherine. said...

I must admit it was a pretty fun roadtrip...and I only went for half of it! I was a bit skeptical at first...but now I would go again in a heart beat!

We are in total agreement on how to celebrate Memorial Day and Veterans Day
