Only once, I live in America and crossed into Mexico for a few hours back in the 80s.

Maybe a little bit less or more than 30.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

I've never been outside of the United States, although I have been all over the place here. I've lived in California, New Hampshire, Maine, Ohio, Georgia (very briefly) and Florida.

Once. Me and a friend drove down to Mazatlan, Mexico and spent a couple weeks there. The alternator went out in my car during a huge thunderstorm so my buddy had to get out in ankle deep water to push start me. We found a mechanic who refurbished it--worked on it for a couple hours and charged us like 8 bucks, lol. So we tipped him heavily. It was very fortunate my friend was fluent in Spanish. The alternator remained workable for the rest of the time I had the car. gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

Four or five times? The last time I went to the US I went through customs in LAX and that sucked so I have no desire to go back there anytime soonlol! Between grade 11 and 12 I spent the summer in Japan with an exchange student friend and it was a waaaay less stressful experience!

I do want to renew my passport because the company I work for builds and ships equipment all over the world and sometimes they send local workers to help install everything. :3

Just once, this spring actually. Went on a cruise and we stopped in Mexico and Belize. (That's real poverty btw)

That's it, despite being 3 hours from Canada. The people who haven't been to Canada who live in Michigan are few and far between so I always get crap when people find out.

The world is quiet here.

Just Canada twice for the utility of it as a passage. A north-west passage of sorts. My family never wanted to go north after that, it always annoyed me. F the southern states honestly I want no part of it unless I have to go there. Maybe if I hadn't gone through crap or had this awfulness imprinted on me when we moved south I would have a better opinion of it.
