Does that tour come with or without a police escort off the lake and the 250.00 noise ticket...

Danny O,
You might not recognize TR anymore, the population is about 100,000 now.

I used to hang on Stephan Ave! What year(s) were you "growing up" there? Walter Rockhill, Brian Patterson, Lee Truskin. Any of these names ring a bell? They all lived on Stephan. We had our own little street-gang (not hard-asses, just wise-asses). Great memories.

Toms River was a nice place to be a kid in the 60's & 70's (pop. 60k when I left in '80). Riding dirtbikes, racing around in boats and building hot rods in the garage with Springsteen on the radio...

"Nice place to be from", as I tell everyone.

"Berks Law" Steve Berk is his name ( My Dad )

Was his 1st race boat ( 28 Cigarette ) raced it in 1977-1978.

His family had a summer house in Silver bay point 344 Cheryl Drive.

He had a house in Bricktown.

Danny O,
It's a small world. Brian Patterson's family rented my parents house. My sister and brother knew him well. I've known Walter for years-he recently got married, had a baby (I'm not sure which was first the wedding or baby) and bought a house on Aldo.
My father got transferred to Albany, but I use to spend the summer with my grandparents on Stephan-next door to the Patersons. You would probably know my grandfather-all the kids knew him as 'Howie", he was very popular with the neighborhood kids. Did you know the Wingenders, or my brother/sister Debbie & Kevin?
I ended up buying a house on Stephan 9 years ago. Where did you live?

Lucky,
I didnt understand your response-was that your dads boat?

Yes, it was my Dad's boat.

Bob G,
Those were the good old days.

Lucky,
I've got a picture of that boat going out the Pt. Pleasant Inlet for the Bennihana Grand Prix. Look for me with the P5-14 "Carrabbas" boat-I sometimes thottle for them-I'll give you the picture. I look forward to meeting you.
