Visiting or passing the two homes my family used to own on Newark Ave would be the time portal for me! My aunt and uncle still live in one of the homes and when I visit them I find that every inch of that house is filled with memories of almost every summer of my life.      George

It reminds me of Point Pleasant/Jenkinson's.  Which probably isn't a bad thing.  After all, not everything needs to be Wildwood.

So how was that new Explorer?  And the Haunted House?

 
The new Escape returned 33 mpg on the way down and up on the highway and gave us a combined mileage of 26. With 3 people, luggage and 800 miles on it, that is nothing short of amazing. Its a rocket with the ecoboost engine too  
Here it is..

We did it, I'm not embarrassed, and it became a short-lived tradition while on vacation. One year, my younger brother bought one of those rubber pillows that emitted a Bronx cheer when you sat on it. How it made the transition to after-boardwalk prank remains a mystery. For a few years in the early 1970s, my family would drive around looking for late-night pedestrians on Pacific (or nearby). There was a certain formula. We always approached them from behind. Our victims were always adults, on foot, and no more than a group of four. A young couple walking hand-in-hand was gold. My mom was generally the ringleader in the mischief, saying things like "get that couple over there." We would slowly drive up alongside someone and – at the right moment – press the pillow to make a startling, farting noise. People would turn around in horror, then burst out laughing. We did that for at least two years. I'm sure the make and model of my dad's car is on file somewhere in Wildwood.

 
Great memories !!!  Grin

Urie's... giving the hostess our name, then waiting, and then finally being called (or buzzed, or sent a text... forget how it's done these days) to complete the long walk down that hallway to the dining room in back.  It's been that way for years and if I close my eyes, I can still see the gift shop in the front (anyone remember when the gift shop was in a small building in the parking lot?) and the old décor in the dining room with a wall of netting and wooden seagulls attached to it?  Probably going back at least 20 years now...

 
 
Yep. Good ol Uries.. We used to love it..  Cheesy still a great location

Thanks for letting me know Wildwood_Since_85. I've been away for a while so I haven't caught up with all the topics/threads since I was last here.  George
