Hello from NJ!
« on: October 19, 2020, 01:40:09 PM »

Hi! My excitement about this forum isnít really helping my grammar right now so excuse my mistakes.

To start off, my name is Dan and I am an aspiring roadgeek from New Jersey! I reside in the NYC metro area, meaning I like to research a lot about the highways in my area such as I-78, the GSP and the Turnpike.

I have been interested in roads for many years but only have just started taking it seriously. Unfortunately I donít get to travel around much although I can say I am also interested in NY and PA. Other places Iíve been through are DE, Eastern MD, and southern VA. I also just recently started getting into bridges (primarily truss ones).

Among my favorite highways are I-78 and the Northway (I-87), I canít say I love the NJ turnpike too much but it is pretty cool. GSP is probably my favorite along with the 1-9, which might be surprising since it goes through that crazy interchange at Newark Airport. Iíll tack on US 13 as I love the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, definitely one of the coolest bridges Iíve crossed.

Thatís all I got for now, hope to meet some fellow NJ geeks on here! It would be really awesome to see more from my home state.

Greetings from a former NJ resident, I was born and raised there, but moved south to North/East Florida in late September of 2017.

Greetings from So Cal.  Never was a New Jerseyite but I have visited a few times, more often by rail than highway.

Greetings from Indiana, and my entire experience in NJ is I-80, US-46, NJ-3, and NJ-495.

I have family in NJ, only $71 away in tolls. Thankful for (mostly) free roads where I'm from.
The real Golden Triangle is in east-central Mississippi. Any other "golden triangle" is just a copycat.

I deem engineering school responsible for any extended periods of inactivity. Must concentrate my G.R.I.T.

Hello from the Midwest! :cheers: I've never been to the state of New Jersey, but I've seen some interesting things on Street View from there.
