New User Looking for help

I have two working nodes built on NanoStation M2N units. They check out fine, I also have a managed switch available. My desire was to deeply these and use a tunnel to link to other nodes. Looking at your map, there is another node about 7 miles away that I might be able to see, but otherwise i am an island. 
I got back into Ham Radio now I am in semi retirement with the specific aim of looking into mesh radio. I have a strong career in digital communications and this seems a good fit. 
This site and the docs has got me so far, but I need to reach out to get the addresses and codes to create the tunnel and become part of the net. Seems there is no defined process i have found for this, hence this post. 
My call is KD2QIP located in NJ at Lat 40.774800 Long -74.17824 nearest operating node seems to be N2MH other than driving to his address cannot find an e-mail or phone number for him and he is never on his repeater. 
So anybody in my area prepared to help out?

I am not too far away, center of Staten Island. let me get some gear set up. I was using a Raspberry Pi in the past, I'll get another one. I have a big 2.4 ghz omni antenna I can put of the roof but I pretty much have line of sight to you getting a yagi might be best though. heck we could probably do uhf/vhf simplex too.

Tunnel connections

Yes - a local RF connection is not required to setup a tunnel connection. They are independent links.
