Subject: RE: BS: Big Mick New Jersey bound.
As someone pointed out above--you'll be able to get to at least ten different shopping malls without going up a hill--Haddonfield is the home of the "Halloween" movies--Cherry Hill is know as "The California of New Jersey", and has it's very own branch of the Mafia! You'll be just a hop, skip and a jump from Trenton and Mercer County, where New Jersey History turns into world history--being, among other things, the site of the Lindbergh kidnapping, the War of the Worlds scare, the notorious murder of Megan Kanga(of the Megan Laws)--

It figures big in aviation history, being home to Lindbergh, as well as the home of the Hindenburg Disaster, and, deep in Pine Barrens, is the final resting place of Mexican aviator Emilio Carranza, who crashed there on a goodwill flight from New York to Mexico City, in 1928--see Carranza Memorial Page

--And another famous transportation disaster, the Wreck of the Nelly Bly, took place there in 1901--

The Pine Barrens   are worth moving to New Jersey for--being a huge wilderness complete with its own folk music, as well as blueberries , cranberries, tidal basins, the sinister and terrifying Jersey Devil, and an aquifer filled with trillions of gallons of the purest drinking water on the planet--

Of course--people make fun of New Jersey, but there is a lot more to do there than in Michigan--
