harold and kumar got nothin' on me

I haven't seen the movie, but I can relate to the main characters' being lost on the highways and biways of our great neighboring state of New Jersey. It never fails: No matter how explicit and clear the directions, I simply cannot find my way around!

I learned of this deficiency while trying to get to family events in Bergen County and was painfully reminded as I roamed around the Woodbridge area yesterday trying to meet a friend for coffee. It took me almost as long to find the Starbucks on Route 1/9 as it had to get from the state line to Exit 10. But at least I got to spend a few minutes with my friend. And I got my latte.

I've been badly lost in the same exact area! I feel that particular Jersey pain!

I know! But at least living on S.I. you get to miss the horrible traffic on the BQE, which I experienced after crossing the Verrazano.

I live about 10 minutes South of Woodbridge and my brother lives in Woodbridge. Next time give me a call.

LOL....don't worry, I'm from Jersey and I get lost all the time in the same area that you were in....there are way too many signs....way too many cars [going way too fast]! I'm glad you finally made it to your desitination. Now don't worry when you head further west.....many more miles between excits and better signage!
