I am now able to do more and have a bit more of the life I want. It is a great start, but I still have a long way to go.

Oh, New Jersey, how do we love thee? 118 reasons why...

Jan 1. 2016: Oh, New Jersey, how do we love thee? 118 reasons why...

Many years ago, the beauty of this state inspired me to explore everything that NJ had to offer, and to capture everything that I was seeing. I found that there is much more to this state than the rolling hills of the north and the crashing waves down the shore. There are playgrounds, forests, zoos, museums, miles of trails, sights to see, and adventures to be had, all within a short drive for many. This inspiration to explore grew into a need, or even a passion, to share what I was seeing. This turned in to GetOutsideNJ.com. I just hope my passion and my adventures around the state inspire you to explore a bit as well.
