Hello from New Jersey!
« on: June 18, 2022, 08:56:44 PM »

Hello everybody! My name is Matt, and I have been a road enthusiast since I was like 6 or 7. I am from Somerset County, New Jersey, and I always love traveling around the state and to other states as well. I am working on a Google My Maps that showcases strange roads all around the US, it's not quite ready yet but there are a few surprises on there.  :-D

I used to be able to memorize all the exits on the Garden State Parkway from 129 to 38, and while I have forgotten some of their names over the years, the roads of New Jersey have always been one of my best interests. I also have a fascination with stub roads that I cannot explain... I hope CT 11 can get finished soon because it's sad to see it ending in the middle of nowhere.

Nice to meet you all!

Hello from Florida! I’m a former resident from Franklin Township. The Parkway isn’t really a favorite of mine, though.

Welcome to the forums!  I can trace my map-drawing and road-geeking to about age 6 or 7 as well!

Greetings from SoCal. I've been to New Jersey a few times, more often by rail (vs driving).
