I'll be there! :D I'll bring your flag and show it to you. Then I'll bring it back.

I distinctly saw two clubs. There is a nothern one. anyway, I guess I qualify for the Southern Club :( (wouldn't want to join the north one anyway).

So, I guess I should just look for meetings or get togethers then?

There are plenty of cachers located in Central Jersey but I am not sure where they associate themselves. :D

OK, there is a north Jersey club and a South Jersey Club...anything for central NJ cachers out there ? If not, where is the North South dividing line ?

I'm in WoodBridge

 

Thanks,

Bob :D

While I'm not from SJ or NJ, I have a partial answer as I seemingly belong to both. (My parents have a house in Monmouth county (NNJ) and I live in Philly (SNJ border).

 

This link will show you what the south nj cachers consider their area. You can see their website at South Jersey Geocaching.

 

It looks to me like you'd be considered Northern NJ.

 

Hope this helps.

I've often heard that Central Jersey consists of the 3 M'S. (Middlesex, Monmouth, Mercer and Somerset). I've also heard many people suggest that area code 732 is Central Jersey.

Since those Northern city-wishers consider south of 78 to "South Jersey", and the Pineys consider north of 195 to be "North Jersey". I guess we can call everything between 78 & 195 to be Central Jersey.

Agreed, So when are you going to create a "Central NJ Geo Gang" ? :D

That east/west border doesn't make much sense. North and South are two totally different types of terrain. North is somewhat mountainous with tons of different types of trees, whereas the south is made up of all pine trees and sandy areas. The central is basically the transition area, the best of two worlds :D .

Or the worst of them ;)

You guys are so funny. I live in "central jersey" also. Union County, right off of 78. I am going to the North Jersey meeting this week and I am not ashamed! :)

 

Maybe us "borderline" people are privileged enough to attend any meeting in the state.

 

Can't wait to meet everyone!

I can only speak for the southerners...We are interested in having anyone who caches (at least occasionally) below the belt line of NJ, whether they be from the 3MS, PA, DE, wherever.

 

However, that being said, your country bumpkin southern cousins like to take the general NJ weirdness up a notch when they can. Barbie dolls nailed to trees to guide you to a cache, a fully decorated Christmas tree in the middle of the pines, a log book made from a window rollershade mounted to a tree limb, a TB located in the deepest pines that cannot be physically moved, and an event that occurred at 5:00 in the morning on a Thursday, have been a few of our offerings.

 

I've heard it said, "What goes on in the pines, stays in the pines." That may be true. :lol: I can tell you that if you happen upon a local with many missing front teeth, a pig in the pickup, stained trucker cap, and bad breath, be real courteous and don't turn your back on him. ;)

 

So, who's up for a trip?! We have some of the best guides around! We also have a real love for BBQ and hot wings (and occasionally beer or jello shots). :)

Aw, c'mon, EC, don't give away the club's secrets!

 

Oh, wait... you're just cozyin' up so's we kin lure 'em down here and feed 'em to Mister JD Leeds!

 

(Think our Jello shots might be too potent for 'em? Ought we to make them from that stuff they sell in the liquor stores, instead of Gran's applejack?)

A not to our Suthern cousins can come up and visit anytime, the wierdness also appears in Northern Joisey:

 

A miniture castle in a marsh, night time by a freeway, an art gallery on a freeway, airplane crashsites, alien crashsites, Mission Impossible secret agents, a truly EPIC series, fluffy bink bunnies, warm furry kittens, the most prolific forum poster, a panorama of the Sopranos dumping grounds, events that finish at 5:00 a.m. And of course some hills.

I've always had different ideas when it came to north, south, and central jersey.

 

Northern NJ-

Sussex, Warren, Morris, Passaic, Bergen, Essex, Hudson

 

Central NJ-

Hunterdon, Somerset, Union, Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth, Ocean, Burlington, Camden

 

Southern NJ-

Gloucester, Salem, Atlantic, Cumberland, Cape May

Jeez, I REALLY feel left out. I always kind of considered where I lived pretty much dead center (near the "waist") - at least based on the actual land mass/area of the state. But I guess I'm south, if north jersey is above Route 78 :ph34r: (but I'm above Route 195)

 

Ah well, it is nice to go caching up in Ringwood SP one day on the weekend and then Wharton SF on the next day :ph34r: The best of both worlds :huh:

I agree. A 90 minute drive north or south puts me in the highlands or deep in the pine barrens. :ph34r:

 

Of course T32, I've always considered you a piney, I mean you do live in the 609 and I've heard you say hogie once or twice. :wub:

That's an interesting break down.

 

As one from the heart of Central Jersey, I would never consider Ocean, Burlingotn and Camden part of the central region. :ph34r:

Warren and Sussex county are just like Salem and Gloucester but with hills! :ph34r:

They are borderline. I havn't found anybody who thinks the same as me, but I think only the tips of the state are north and south regions.

 

I had a picture I made of my original break down. If I could only find it.

 

There I only listed north central and south. But for an accurate break down, there should be more groups.

 

north central, north east, north west

central central, central east, central west

south central, south east, south west

 

Just envision a picture of the state, with a grid pattern on top of it.

Boy, I've never seen such political boundary lines....with, obviously, the least amount of donations coming from the northwest and southeast :ph34r:

And what's with all this "Route" talk....."Route 78, Route 195"????

Any red-blooded Jerseyan would know it's simply "78" and "195".

Next thing you know you guys will want to pump your own gas into the cachemobile :ph34r:

On a serious note, I've always wondered if a "Delaware Valley" Geocachers club would work....covering most of Hunterdon County

Would that be the Central/Central portion of Hunterdon County or the Central/West side?!? :unsure:

 

Thanks for the bump, Nik -- it's always a good public service to remind folks to be wary of the "local with many missing front teeth, a pig in the pickup, stained trucker cap, and bad breath," and to remind folks to "be real courteous and don't turn your back on him." In fact some of our local piney favorites recently graced the pages of Weird NJ - chased the Marks right off the property. (Yep, you guessed it, there is a geocache not far from where said pineys live.)

 

(With respect to the old posts) For the record, South Jersey graciously acknowledges that it doesn't have the corner market on weirdness - also, we have never seen BrianSnat's crusty, dirty laundry and we are thankful for that!

Uh oh - I've been found out :blink: Well, my parents are transplants from Indiana and Pencil-tuckey, so may not be a true New Jerseyan even though I was born here and grew up here :unsure:

 

EDIT: SEE - I even wrote "New Jerseyan" instead of just "Jerseyan"

I would consider the "Delaware Valley" to be the west side along the river.

The one and only event I've attended was in Pennsylvania, that is the closest club to me.

Not to get too off topic, but this information came to me in an email....sort of a little education for those facinated with us Jerseyans. My apologies to the "609'ers".....like I said.....it's from an email. :unsure:

 

You know you're from Jersey when . .

 

You don't think of fruit when people mention "The Oranges."

 

You know that it's called Great Adventure, not Six Flags.

 

A good, quick breakfast is a hard roll with butter.

 

You've known the way to Seaside Heights since you were seven.

 

You know that the state isn't one big oil refinery.

 

At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen, and you know the town Jon Bon Jovi is from.

 

You know what a "jug handle" is.

 

You know that WaWa is a convenience store.

 

You know that the state isn't all farmland.

 

You know that there are no "beaches" in New Jersey--there's the

shore--and you don't go "to the shore," you go "down the shore." And when

you are there, you're not "at the shore"; you are "down the shore."

 

You know how to properly negotiate a circle.

 

You knew that the last sentence had to do with driving.

 

You know that this is the only "New" state that doesn't require "New" to

identify it (try . Mexico . . . York ..! . . Hampshire-- doesn't

work, does it?).

 

You know that a "White Castle" is the name of BOTH a fast food chain AND

a fast food sandwich.

 

You consider putting mayo on a corned beef sandwich a sacrilege.

 

You don't think "What exit?" is very funny.

 

You know that people from the 609 area code are "a little different."

Yes they are!

 

You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton--that's for

out-of-staters.

 

The Jets-Giants game has started fights at your school or local bar.

 

You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls.

 

You refer to all highways and interstates by their numbers.

 

Every year you have at least one kid in your class named Tony.

 

You know the location of every clip shown in the Sopranos opening

credits.

 

You've gotten on the wrong highway trying to get out of the mall.

 

You know that people from North Jersey go to Seaside Heights, and people

from Central Jersey go to Belmar, and people from South Jersey go to

Wildwood. It c an be no other way.

 

You weren't raised in New Jersey--you were raised in either North Jersey, Central Jersey or South Jersey.

 

You don't consider Newark or Camden to actually be part of the state.

 

You remember the stores Korvette's, Two Guys, Rickel's, Channel, Bamberger's and Orbach's.

 

You also remember Palisades Amusement Park.

 

You've had a boardwalk cheese steak and vinegar fries.

 

You start planning for Memorial Day weekend in February.

Thanks,

Well, back in the days of 2 area codes, it was the 201 / 609 divide. Not sure where it would be these days ???
