After 38 years of teaching and coaching, I’m walking down the beautiful New Jersey Shore from Sandy Hook to Cape May simply because I can. For my entire life, my family, friends, and I have enjoyed all that the Jersey Shore offers. So, now that I have the time, I’m going to spend September at the Shore – the whole Shore from North to South – the beaches, boardwalks, and roads; the people I know and the people I’ll meet; the restaurants (and bars!); the water and waves; and, hopefully, the benign weather. If this sounds like a good idea and you’d like to follow me along the way, please make a donation to Geoffrey’s MVP and read this website to find out about what we want to accomplish.

Map and Itinerary

Please explore Doug's journey below. Anything labeled "TBD" means that he either hasn’t decided or doesn’t know where he is staying yet. If you have, or know anyone who has a place where he could stay, please contact us and let us know! Bird Watching means that the Philadelphia Eagles game is on...


Doug is taking a boat directly from Island Beach State Park to Barnegat Light, NJ. The interactive Google Map cannot factor this in automatically.
