Quote Beeloo03: Now why have I always thought that "Springfield" was supposed to be in Illinois, or somewhere in the midwest?
I wonder if I've just assumed this through the years or did I hear it mentioned on GL? Now I don't know!! LOL
Anyway...about the outdoor scenes.......born and raised here in NJ and I'm very familiar with both Peapack and Lake Mohawk (I live right near Lake Mohawk, which is part of Sparta, NJ). Both are very pretty areas.
Oh my goodness, so you were right there when they were filming for the last couple of years or however long it has been since they started using Peapack?? I think for years they made us believe that Springfield was in Illinois, don't believe that you just dreamed it up. Just wish that they were still filming, even if it was in Alaska, because that would mean we would still have our beloved GL!!!
I was JUST talking about this to my husband and kids earlier today....about how one of my absolute favorite things to do has been driving out to Peapack in the hopes of seeing some of the GL stars filming. My girls are 9 and 10 and would always say to me, "I can't wait to take the drive to look for the people from your show again!" LOL
Well, after a bunch of times going out there (it's not far, not even a hour....Lake Mohawk is mere minutes), and never being lucky enough to catch them, we hit the jackpot this past summer and saw them filming! As soon as I drove up the one street where I know they film (it's the property there were using for the Bauer house scenes), I saw a huge crowd of people milling around.....cameras, then I spotted Ellen Wheeler and others going over papers (I guess scripts) with Tom Pelphrey. To this day, my girls still talk about the "Pelphey guy"......they leave out the "r" and don't say Pelphrey, but instead, Pelphey...LOL.
So anyway, while talking to my husband and kids earlier today, I said to them, "There's no reason to drive out to Peapack anymore........" Even if I did, it would be too darn sad!
