Billyboy and Leethebard,
Thanks for your kind words.
Lee, you guys from Northern Ocean county aren't that different...It's not like you're from Tuckerton.

    Dave, thanks for the breakdown of the stops.  I like your style, sir!

    yes, good job, Dave!!
    And there is comfort in numbers, as I see that I was'nt the ONLY one NOT to get the GARAGE 25% discount!
    (and I paid for me , my sis, &  ross's meal  this time, so that was about 8 bucks that I did'nt HAVE to spend, if I knew better)

      Thanks for the mention, Dave. It was an honor and a privelege, and a lot of fun to be the Bus #2 docent. I kinda felt like the Joe Biden of the tour.

        Hello all ,
        Excellent trip report Dave , I always like reading different accounts of the day and especially look forward to your brand of writing .
        John has been in touch with The Garage on this , it should not have happened , and we will see if anything will be done to correct it on their end .

            Is there any way to get added to the 2011 waiting list? 
             
            I heard about the Tour on Serious Eats, then pulled up some info from the NJ.com article.  I'm a NJ resident and hot dog enthusiast, can't believe I haven't heard of the Tour earlier!

                    3 of the 7 stops on the 2010 tour had been on the 2009 tour but 1 of the 3 repeats was the place where we all park and meet the buses.

                        'Scuse me...I really like hot dogs a lot. Any chance of me hopping aboard next fall? I bet I could eat at least 2, maybe 3 frankfurters.
                         
                          In any case, congratulations and best of health in the new manse.

                            Thanks, Benzee. I knew I could count on you. Any chance of you Hudson Valley boys coming down for a Charlie's Pool Room meet one day? 
                             
                              Best wishes,

                                 I prefer Thursdays or Fridays, though Tuesday is OK, too. Let's see how she pans out.

                                  Put me down for a Charlie's visit-I've never been, although I'm a bit ashamed to admit that.

                                              Hello all ,
                                              John actually might be  three from Ireland ,  how could I forget , they have already booked their trip and will be in New York City .
                                              Also they will not have a rent a  car and may need a ride from Manhattan . I know there has to be a single guy out there to help out three Irish  gals for the day . !!
                                              Any of our potential stops able to do some  cabbage on the dogs

                                                  This is crazy - how some TV station can ignore this is beyond me!
                                                 
                                                And Benzee - how much of a bribe do you need to put these ladies on same bus with me?

                                                  This is my first time to this web site.  How do we sign up for the Hot Dog Tour?

                                                      Hello to all,  My first post.  Just recently came across this site, which looks to be right up my alley.  Been a staunch follower of DDD & BTIEA over the last year or more and have done several DDD Trips since then, including 12 locations in the Northwest (Seattle, Portland, Boise) last summer and a recent trip hitting 11 places through Baltimore, West VA (including Hillbilly Hotdogs Homewrecker), Kentucky, OH & PA.
                                                      The NJ Dogpounder (let's pound down some dogs) looks like a great day of canine calorie consumption.  I plan to sign up soon. 
                                                      Just had a question about this thread.  I traced it back to the start and as far as I can tell it only documents the stops on the tour starting with the 3rd year in 2006.  Is there documentation of the stops on the first 2 years anywhere?  I was amazed as I traced back at how many great dog dens there are still to experience between all the stops on the tour and other recommendations.  I just had to run out to Tony's Truck in Branch Brook for lunch and then noticed Dickie Dee's on the way there, so had an I-dog too.  Looking forward to many more discoveries thanks to the crew here.
