... I had been living along with traveling abroad since March 14, 1991 until April 27th, 2015 with three of those years returning to the United States and assisting family members. The travel was over land, river, sea, and very seldom did I use aircraft in which I have over 11,000 photos to verify this. I have traveled around the world to 74 countries, six continents, and visited over 350 cities. Im renovated a house and lived in Chicago’s Buck town area from 1978 to 1988, rented in Belvedere and South Beloit, Illinois for a total of 2 years. Lived in Phoenix Arizona 1.5 years mid 70’s, Fontana, Lake Como, Devil’s Lake, and Beloit, Wisconsin areas for a total of 4 years
