I was raised oil field trash. We covered some ground.
The old man also worked heavy equipment, so we not only traveled internationally, but lived in more than one state, as well.
I grew up with itchy feet myself, always looking for a shrine I never found. The thing about being well traveled is that, well, ya get to travel. I have only had a drivers license in 9 states - but I've worked long-term jobs in 11. I worked for a couple of years in North Dakota, for example - but I never changed residence for both tax reasons and personal convenience.
I paid my automobile registration fees to Nevada, and paid for a North Dakota road-use sticker to legitimize my vehicles in that state. I did that first thing. I never saw anyone else in my company with a tax sticker - these were not folks who believed in paying their way. They were republican types who complain about paying for the services they expect from government. They wanna USE the road - just not to pay for it.
I've never had a job in a foreign land, though I've had a contract in my hand - just didn't sign it. The then-current missus wasn't up to it, though she thought otherwise. My international travels as an adult have been confined to the realm of tourism.
