Hello from the Noobs in Jersey!!
I've already posted an introduction however in the wrong place and laced with questions, so now to properly introduce myself.
I've always been a fan of the outdoors, nature and toys weather it be riding quads, boating in the Atlantic, and playing homeowner landscaper.
My wife and I have two daughters, 5&7, and our goal is to make them as well rounded individuals as possible, which isn't easy in many ways.
Last fall we took a weekend trip to Knoebels with another family and I saw a great potential for attaining my goal. We had such a great time! We were able to be a family without the gadgets, the neighborhood kids, or any other distraction. And I got to teach the kids some great lessons that would have never presented themselves in the suburbs.
So the wife and I plan to do away with the bi-annual vacation and start doing more weekend trips, and weeklong trips instead. We are looking forward to just walking, fishing, swimming and my favorite RELAXING without distractions.
I have already been the recipient of a lot of valuable insight and advice in the few days that I've been a member of this forum, an I hope that one day I can somehow contribute in kind. Thanks again for the education and hopefully our paths will cross.
