Hi! My excitement about this forum isn't 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 don't get to travel around much although I can say I am also interested in NY and PA. Other places I've 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 can't 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. I'll tack on US 13 as I love the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, definitely one of the coolest bridges I've crossed.

That's 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.
