    Sorry, I tend to forget it is a south Jersey term. Basically it is a short term tourist or someone who is not from the shore/south Jersey. This could be day trippers, weekenders, etc. The term goes back to the 1920s when people would come down to the shore with lunches packed in shoeboxes. The traffic is awful on holidays and weekends. The normal 45 minute drive from home to condo is 40-45 min. It has taken over 2 hours on holiday weekends and that is taking the back roads. Our shore communities are all on barrier islands. Some only have one way on and off and some you must go through a different community to get where you are going. Others, like Ocean City(where we go) have two bridges to the mainland and two to other barrier islands.
