I am looking for other moms in my area! It's hard to find friends with small children who are open to alternative parenting ideas... Crunchy mammas!

Anybody out there?

I'm in Mercer County, NJ, near Trenton. My DD is 12 months. There's actually a lot of us here, and we do meet up on occasion.

I'm in the Stroudsburg area, so that's a bit of a drive for me, but not terribly bad...

Welcome! I'm in NJ, but not too far from Pa. I'm about 20 minutes from Easton, so maybe about 1/2 hour from you?

Thanks to Katrina, we're now a PA family. Just relocated to E Stroudsburg and I'm glad to see so many mommas here. Off to check out the Lehigh Valley thread now that I know that's what LV means

Funny you should mention Daisy Bar - I have lived here my whole life. My cat as a child was named "Daisy" because of the restaurant - it has always been my favorite!

I am also involved in local government - do you know that they want to stick a Wal-Mart Supercenter off of Rt. 512 between Pen Argyl and Wind Gap - we are fighting that tooth and nail.

I heard about the Wal-mart thing. I thought they already got the project going in that wooded area between Pen Argyl and Wind Gap. I used to run on that railroad track. So much for living in a nice little town. :

I don't know, there's just something about Daisy Bar's rolls. I think it's because they steam them. Everything is just sooo good! :LOL

Karen EMT, did you graduate from Pen Argyl? If so what year? I graduated in 94.

They have started some work on the Wal-Mart site. They are compliant with zoning/planning regulations; however, we are still trying to fight them on the traffic issue. We are still trying to get the project pulled.

I did graduate from Pen Argyl, in 1989. That experience made me want to NEVER send my kids there My son goes over to Faith Christian in Roseto.

You guys are making me SO hungry for a cheesesteak loaded with hot peppers!

Hi! Hope you don't mind me cutting in. Dh and I are selling our home on LI and may not get what we need to get for it. So relocation may be in the future. We have family in Succasunna NJ and we like the area,but it's too expensive. Any good, safe, family-oriented affordable areas in western NJ/eastern PA?

Hey! Although I am currently residing in Rochester NY, I visit Stroudsburg ALOT because me parents still live there!! We are actually planning a trip for halloween. Let me know if you want to get together. We just moved back up north from FL so I'm dying to start networking with other mamas again.
