What Exit? LbNA # 11482
|Placed Date||Oct 9 2004|
There is a gag that goes like this: “Oh, you’re from New Jersey? What exit?” Just so you know, we who are from NJ do not find this funny. At any rate, in order to find these letterboxes, you will have to figure out the exit number for each destination and then do the math.
Both boxes are located along the Garden State Parkway. One box is on the Northbound side, the other is on the Southbound side. These are the first stamps carved by War. Because of the high volume of traffic (pun well intended) in the area of the boxes, please make sure to be very discreet. It would be best to take the boxes to your car to stamp in. Be sure to bag everything exactly as found (or better). Thanks.

When you reach the end of the path, examine the end of the guardrail. You found it? What exit?
