Somewhat. Memorabilia, music, books, nothing too excessive.

I collect those little souvenir spoons you can get in souvenir shops. I have 3 racks and was working on my 4th when the virus hit.

My wife and I both are collectors, and display space in our condo can be a problem. We use most of the available horizontal space.

I collect travel touchstones. I like to find unique items that will remind me of our wonderful adventures.

After a lot of unexpected and spontaneous moving, in my younger years, I became a minimalist, and I really prefer it now.

I am not a collector, I have enough trouble being a borderline hoarder.

I use to collect and some how i always loose it. After living with my mother n law due to her being ill i noticed she collects everything and her house looks like 1 on hoarders. I never want to live that way again. Now i feel if u cant use it give it 2 someone who can.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!

I attended a destination wedding in Las Vegas and my kids (who were also invited to the wedding) joined me and we had a blast. The wedding was fun and we enjoyed the sightseeing.

We attended two destination weddings in the Bahamas and are attending one in Napa, CA, next week. We enjoy extending the trip to explore these other places.

We went to our son's wedding in Nevada from the east, but I wouldn't call it a destination wedding.

Traveled to California for wedding of folks who lived there and went to Maine to babysit our grandson while his parents partied after a destination wedding, but that's it.
