Sussex seems to be one of the best meets I've ever been to.  I don't know
how many other big ones there are outside of Dayton, but this one seems to
be the biggest one in NJ at least.

I've gotten some cool stuff there over the years too, and a lot of it was
computer related.

Last year I got one of the TRS-80 handheld computers that looks like an old
scientific calculator for a few bucks.
