Hey everyone, I just registered. I was wondering If anyone knew what would be the fastest and most convenient state closest to northern NJ.

We dont have powerball here so I'm gonna make a quick randevous(sp?) to whichever state is closest. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

    Pennsylvania.  Get your car ready and head on over.  You still have time to buy some tickets.

      thanks.

      Do you know how long the drive is? Where would be the closest place in PA.

      I need directions as to what route to take and stuff.

       

      thanks

        What city are you located in?  If you have been to Pennsylvania before, just go here http://www.palottery.com/lottery/PALotto/retailerList.asp?lotteryNav=29736| and then type the name of the city.  It will give you all the retailers in that city.  Once you have the address of the retailer, head on over to maps.yahoo.com, click on "driving directions" on the top, and get driving directions to the retailer.  Its that simple.

        Good luck for the drawing.

          I'm in Paterson and I play mega millions but only when the pot is over 60m, and now it's down to 10m since someone won yesterdays jackpot.

           

          Thanks

              If you are in Patterson N.J., New York State might be closer!  Like Spring Valley, Greenwood Lake' Nanuette etc.

                New York doesn't have Powerball., but you could make the drive to CT.

                I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    Well it depends on where you are going and what roads you take.  For example,

                    Paterson, NJ to Stroudsburg, PA (yahoo says, 63.3 miles and 1 hour 9 minutes)

                    (link http://maps.yahoo.com/dd_result?ed=xTowJeV.wimQQVd6MsEKU7USFw--&csz=paterson%2C+NJ&country=us&tcsz=stroudsburg%2C+PA&tcountry=us)

                    Paterson, NJ to Stamford, CT ( yahoo says, 46.2 miles and 1 hour and 8 minute)

                    (link http://maps.yahoo.com/dd_result?ed=xTowJeV.wimQQVd6MsEKU7USFw--&csz=paterson%2C+NJ&country=us&tcsz=stamford%2C+ct&tcountry=us)


                    But if you leave now, and are going to CT, then you will definitely hit the traffic in New York and north NJ.  I would go to PA, but thats just me.  It all depends on you.

                      Better get moving. The cutoff time for Powerball ticket sales in Pennsylvania is 9:59 PM on the day of the drawing.

                      Good Luck everyone, Play responibly and have fun,  Chas
