My first tattoo is a Starfleet delta. It is placed where Kirk had the delta on his green tunic.
Jersey. Morris County. More towards the "west/central side". Small state, massive culture. Out-of-staters probably don't understate how diverse the state is. West side of Morris County seems to think they are southern hicks and proud of it.
And the North/South Jersey dichotomy is too complicated for me to explain offhand. The 7/11 and Wawa divide.
For me, as soon as I cross the Delaware Water Gap, it is a bunch of nothing. Beautiful trees, but not much civilization. At least Pennsyltucky has rest stops everywhere. Past the Mississippi River, forget it. Good luck finding a place to pee. The Northeast corridor (St. Paul, MN to Boston, MA) has infrastructure.
