New Jersey…… See YA

Well, today we leave the Garden State as residents and officially become “Snow Birds”.  Packing up our home of 23 years has been a challenging task and one that I hope not to repeat in the near future.   We will be spending the warm summer months in Palmyra, PA and the the balance of our time in Lake Worth FLA.   I thought I would take a moment of your time and present my “Top Five ” list of what I will miss and not miss about NJ. 

What I will “NOT” miss

1) Taxes –   in the 23 years we have owned our home we have seen our taxes quadruple and the services we receive for this fees just keeps getting less and less.   Seriously, there is no value by keeping a large home in NJ.  Totally ashame.

2) Traffic – Getting from point A to B is not that simple anymore.   Just to many vehicles on the roads.

3) Road conditions –  NJ streets, highways and bridges are just coming apart.  Construction that is getting done is slow and of poor quality.

4) Politics – see items 1, 2 and 3.   Enough said

5) The Weather –  Leaving winter behind is a wonderful thing.   Felt great to give away the snow blower and shovels.   Love posting beach shots in December to all our friends

What I will miss

1) Friends and family –  Have some great memories and will miss everyone, but we will keep in touch and our doors are always open for visitors.  KAMP KOHN NORTH is closing its door, but all are welcome to KAMP KOHN COUNTRYSIDE and CASA KAMP KOHN SOUTH.

2) Bike Rides –  The Sourland Mountains, the back roads of Franklin Park, Hillsborough, Manville, Mercer, Monmouth. Hunderdon, and Middlesex county have been an amazing experience.

3) Dining pleasures – Favorite places that I will miss  include:  Dusals, Stage House and Skylark Diner

4) Our Backyard – will certaintly miss our hot tub, garden pond, and large play area that have seen many days of our kids and grandkids enjoying playful times.   All our tented events are now great memories

5) Forrestal Village Fitness (Formly Cando Fitness)  –  The health club has been my morning experience for many years.  Will miss my spin classes, and boot camp workouts.   Golds Gym Hummelstown PA here I come

and also an Honorable mention of : The Jersey  shore. Belmar Beach……….
