Calling Jersey Peeps.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 11:02 am

I have a request.

I received an e-mail from a reader who fled left New Jersey with his wife and young daughter a couple years ago and relocated to North Carolina. (Given the state of the State, there is a lot of that going around these days.)

Anyway, his wife used to sport a “Mile 0” sticker on her car. It was a depiction of the Mile Marker “0” sign that one sees at the terminus of the Garden State Parkway in Cape May. Turns out her car was totaled, and with it went the sticker. He would very much like to get a replacement for her.

If any of you live down that way, I would appreciate it if you could tell me where one might be able to buy such an item. I called a couple places that I thought might be promising (The Great White Shark, a cool store on the Mall in Cape May, and the Exit Zero* Store located in the Congress Hall Hotel in Cape May) and came up dry.

If you can help me help a Jersey EX-Pat help his spouse, I’d appreciate it.


* There is no “Exit Zero” on the Parkway – just so you know.


  1. I’ve been looking for one of these as well. Have absolutely no idea where to find one. Any hints would greatly be helpful.

  2. Peep here to the rescue . . . (not com). You can get any exit on the Turnpike or GSP that you want, in stickers, T-shirts, etc. They do have Exit 0 (even if the real Parkway does not).

    I have lots of Exit 109 stuff myself.

  3. The mile 0 sticker (shirt, poster, even cigar) is popular in Key West – the end of US A1A.

  5. Gregor, that’s where the “what exit” stuff is from. Didn’t want to steal the originator’s thunder.

  6. I don’t think I can do anything about the sticker, but I can definitely relate to the desire to leave this beautiful specimen of a state.

    Somehow, it’s become the modern incarnation of Stalinist Russia.

    Hoping to make tracks soon.

  7. As the requester mentioned above, I appreciate the offers. it’s got to be Mile 0. There is no Exit 0, and my wife got mad at the stickers. Just another little piece of NJ she’d like on her car down here in the world of transplants…Raleigh.

    Can anyone find one?
