    It's what most people use to make jerky with. I've also made dehydrated yogurt. Which probably sounds strange, but it's pretty good. It produces a kind of rubbery thing that you can just eat or roll up with other food inside of it (like fresh berries or some other fruit or something).
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    I am also in New Jersey, near Morristown.

    IIRC, Wendy lives about about 30-40 miles south of me.

    Tommy is near Harrisburg, PA, which is about 180 miles due west of me.
    Yes I always underestimate the sheer size of the USA. After we'd visited I looked on a map to see where we had been and it brought the size of the country home to me.

    Where I live, it would take about 5 hours of fast driving just get out of the state. The closest border is Mexico.

    Of course nobody could blame you since you are living on the other side of the Atlantic

    For example, from my house in New Jersey to Jacksonville, Florida it's about 1,300 miles, and the times I've driven that route (family in the area down there) it took me 3 days, with 2 overnight stops, the first in either Maryland or Wash, DC, and then a second one in Northern Georgia, and then the last day I'd be at my destination.

    That's with driving about 400 miles per day, or about 7 hours of 'road time' + whatever for fuel and rest/bathroom stops.

    Also, from where I live, it takes about 16 hrs of drive time to get to Quebec in Canada.

    It seems to me from looking at the map, and going 'as the crow flies' that you could get from London, England to Dublin, Ireland in a day maybe.

    Why drive instead of fly?

    Driving is fun (and meditative for me), and the TSA security at the US airports is just ridiculous, and driving in fact seems A LOT safer to me than a giant aluminum-encased sausage traveling at 500mph+ at 30,000 ft...

    Seems to me like 'bloody head' and concussion, but hey, at least he's having FUN, right?

    Going to Dublin involves a sea crossing so it would take somewhat longer. Airport security here is just the same. I don't particularly like flying but sometimes it's the easiest way to go. In general, the best way to travel round Europe is by train, IMHO.

    I live in Middlesbrough in NE England and to go and drive to my daughter in South London takes me typically about 6 hours including stops. Last time I went, I went by train and that probably took me about the same as I had to change trains at one point and use the London Underground/Overground to get to my daughter's house but it's much more relaxing than driving.

    When we visited the USA, I tell people that we basically made a complete circuit of Lake Erie - although we did a few things in between. We had gone to a nephews wedding in Detroit and obviously had a holiday while we were there and visited places in Michigan and Ohio as well as going to Niagara falls (which was fabulous).

    I actually found driving in the USA more less tiring than here. Speeds are mostly a bit lower and away from the major cities the roads were generally quieter than they are here. The size of the country means your population is more spread out.
