I live in Central Jersey (Long Branch for about 44 hours/week), travel to and work in North Jersey near Teterboro Airport Mon - Th(58 hours/week), Hunt/fish in North Central Jersey Th night - Sun.(Hunterdon/Warren Counties for 65 hours/weekend),For me anyting above Toms River is blue belly country.
BUT I travel to, and tread & rake clams and fish for weakfish in Little Egg Harbor and Great Bay mostly every weekend (Fri. & Sat. - 30 hours/weekend) from the 2nd week of July until the opening weekend of bow season until I bag my Earn-A-Buck Doe, then back to clamming and fishing down there until October.
I stop in Scott's Bait & Tackle on Radio Road every weekend for bait (if I don't seine it myself), and get subs & ice at the Deli up the road from him - I put the boat in at First Bridge Marina on Seven Bridges Road (Great Bay Blvd.)- The Owner, Rusty, lets us in there in off season before/after the Marina is officially opened for business for clamming and hunting.
Also, I do hunt some ducks and geese near Leeds Point and Brigantine in Atlantic County AND Stipson Island Rd. in Cape May County from time to time (24-30 hours a few weekends each year)during the Coastal Migratory bird seasons.
I can do the math with hours spent in the North and the South, but, by your definitions, am I considered a Northern "blue belly" or a Southern "grey backed, Jonny Reb, ******* Clam Digger"? [confused][smirk]
Having spent 3 -5 weeks a year for about 10 years in the Mississippi/Louisiana area I know the difference between, and the true Southerner's definition of a "Yankee" and a "Damned Yankee" - "...A Yankee comes to visit, but a Damned Yankee stays...". [smirk]
My heart still lies with the South and the Southern way of life - Even if it is only South Jersey that we're talking about!!!! LMAO [cool][up]
....And, "NO" the Mason-Dixon Line DOES NOT run through South Jersey!!!!
