The Fun Never Stops

Well, it’s been just over a year since our last blog post.  With the best of intentions the beat moves on.  Everyday life is a thing of the past as I share new experiences with my wife in the Garden State.  We moved from Atlanta, GA last fall to Southern New Jersey.  To those of you here, Chess Made Fun is bringing chess to some of the newly explored locations along the Jersey Shore and wonderous outdoor parks!

Of course, what we’re really about is making new friends along the way.  We thought we would share with you some of the places we’ve visited this year.

We’ve put some time aside to practice play and to network through Facebook with a few volunteer groups since our move.  We’re getting back into full swing albeit a late start with summer activities already underway.  Compared with the Southern US, outdoor activities seem to be more common with kids than adults.  Community events  however are very organized and we’re enjoying the ‘old world’ culture and feel of farmers markets and large volunteer drives without the need for corporate sponsorship and promotion found in larger cities.   Southern New Jersey seems like a great place to have landed to spread the word about what we’re doing to help local communities.

Throughout the forest are rivers and streams for canoeing, hiking trails (including a major section of the Batona Trail), miles of unpaved roads for mountain biking, horseback riding plus numerous lakes, ponds and fields ideal for wildlife observation. Tent camping in family, primative and wilderneness.
