Actually I realized a way to make this itinerary 45 minutes shorter.

20170919-0435 : From PORT JERVIS, take train 0044 on the Port Jervis Line with head sign HOBOKEN
[This one almost always takes the Main line and not the Bergen. If it takes the Bergen, I have to juggle things later on.]
20170919-0635 : Arrive at FRANK R LAUTENBERG SECAUCUS LOWER LEVEL. Start walking toward FRANK R LAUTENBERG SECAUCUS UPPER LEVEL
20170919-0637 : Arrive at FRANK R LAUTENBERG SECAUCUS UPPER LEVEL. Kill 3 minutes at FRANK R LAUTENBERG SECAUCUS UPPER LEVEL.
20170919-0640 : From FRANK R LAUTENBERG SECAUCUS UPPER LEVEL, take train 3705 on the Northeast Corridor line with head sign JERSEY AVE.
[If I miss that, there's another one at 6:47 that gets to Newark at 6:55.]
20170919-0648 : Arrive at NEWARK PENN STATION. Kill 20 minutes at NEWARK PENN STATION.
20170919-0708 : From NEWARK PENN STATION, take train 5711 on the Raritan Valley Line with head sign HIGH BRIDGE

Then everything else is the same from then on.
Make a little noise at the flag location.

I think you actually missed a segment:
Newark Penn - Hoboken (not via Secaucus)

Hi, I'm the guy who is generating these things, but now I actually have my own account instead of emailing with Mohawk.

You're right that this itinerary skips the Riverfront Connection. If you treat Kearny & Riverfront as one big mess, then this is okay. If you really had to ride the Riverfront Connection, here's how you could do it in 29 hours.
