I will break it up into 3 sections. South, North and we will give the "Central" people their say too, although all of their rail is the same as North Jersey people (all lines lead to NYC). There is a voting bar above. Whichever town wins each section, will move onto the next round. We will go to the winning town and I will video blog the experience.

Phone calls and visits to local Wawas in the "Central" areas of the state gave us this map:
The Red Counties represent those with Wawas that ALL sell the book.
The Blue Counties represent those that do not have any Wawas.
The Blank Counties have been singled out.
A "P" means that the Wawa had the book.
The "N" means that the Wawa didn't sell the book.
Two in disputed territories say that they had the book, but that it sold out.

Well - I had to do some even heavier groundwork there.

The most astounding thing? In the story - they call it, "A hoagie making showdown."
The new Wawa is in Phillipsburg, which is above I-78. This further points to our thesis that New Jersey's dividing line is cultural and not geographic.
Though it is a stretch to put ALL of the new area below in pink, most do have easy access to many Wawas across the river in PA (like Lambertville does in New Hope).

Next: North Jersey

The fact that I can leave my work in Millburn, Essex County, and make it to our Toms River screening in nearly the same time as my girlfriend, who works in Delanco, Burlington County, is why Toms River (and many other towns in northern Ocean County) is different than the other South Jersey towns that are greatly tied to Philadelphia.
McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Military Bases & the Pine Barrens essentially create a barrier that inhibits a major road connecting the South Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia to Toms River and the nearby beach communities there. . .
Routes 70, 72 & 38? They are sluggish alternatives (especially in the summer), though she will probably NOT take the way google maps suggested and will just stick to those roads. . . like it or not.
But again, the roads are key - and I may be able to beat her there (if I can make it over the Driscoll Bridge in time). And that's crazy, but it is what could point Toms River more "North" - the all powerful Parkway.
According to google maps:
Millburn to Toms River screening - 1 hr 20 minutes
Delanco to Toms River screening - 1 hr 19 minutes
And what about those neighboring beaches in Toms River? Well, in the summer, many Burlington County people go farther south to the beaches - because it's faster, while people from North Jersey prefer those neighboring Toms River beaches (or ones north of them).
Let's suppose she got off work on a warm Friday and went right to the beach:
Delanco to Seaside Heights - 1 hr 32 minutes
Delanco to Surf City (LBI) - 1 hr 42 minutes
But the smoothest ride to the beach (and the spot she usually went to) . . . .
Delanco to Margate City (Atlantic County) - 1hr 31 minutes
Nice 295 & AC Expressway fast ride if done correctly.
But the closest?
Delanco to Belmar (Monmouth County) - 1 hr 7 minutes
So why doesn't she (and other Burlington County) people go there?
Because this is New Jersey. We go "Down the Shore" . . . . not "Up the Shore."

Reasons for North:
-Pretty much New York/ NJ Sports' fans - unless you drive farther south toward LBI
-Closer to fly out of EWR than PHL
-It is a sub here
-Have you seen rush hour traffic at (and north of) exit 80?? Even in the winter!
-Nearby Seaside Heights unquestionably becomes North Jersey for 3 months in the summer
Reasons for South:
-It is Pork Roll here
-It has sand
-Look at a map!
-Even though it is closer to EWR, many residents prefer flying out of ACY

Anyway, enjoy the game today. I have to work later on - so I might be drinking coffee and not beer, but I may be up in Hightstown, Exit 8 off the turnpike, at the Tavern on the Lake (1o1 N. Main St.) for the first part of today's game. If you want to see a 50/50 divide of Eagles & Giants' fans - go there (though I think it will be more like 60%-40% Giants).
And finally, we were mentioned in the New York Daily News today and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Enjoy reading!

Also there is a good article in the Philly Inquirer today about Mulligan's in Hoboken - which is my neighborhood pub - where I watched most of the Eagles'games and the Phillies' World Series run as well.
Finally, I will be interviewing tomorrow morning around 7:30am on WJRZ 1001. FM

Hunterdon County is Mostly Giants - except there is a mixture along the river towns. In the southern part, there continues to be some Eagles' dominance.
Mercer County is pretty evenly split and it is the only county in NJ with no clear territory in any town. The northern towns lean toward the Giants & the southern towns lean toward the Eagles.
