New tag

log Cabin built in 1927, pretty close to the most north section of the PB.

surrounded by the creek, on a dangerous turn with limited parking

The taxpayers association runs this facility and you can rent it, if you wish! It is on the national Register of Historic places.

Electraglide on Quaker bridge I've seen it all now.

Great grab vtwinp, I did not think you would take the touring bike for that one, but that make you much more of a man then me.

Now I just need to figure out your new tag.

OMG I never thought of that place for a tag...

there has been some close tags to my house but this one is really really close, only a couple hundred yards down the road... I don't think it would even be a 1/4 mile round trip

My wife's XT hasn't been out yet this year maybe I'll give it a tune up and a test ride down the street

Hey vtwinp, is that a third bike? A Camo paint job, wasn't it maroon or dark red in one of your last tags?

same bike

I had trouble keeping paint on the plastic tank, so the new look is a vinyl wrap. I do have another Buell but that one only goes to Raceway Park.
Glad the tag is in your hood, time for the shakedown cruz on the wifes bike.

Vtwinp, nice work in getting that tag. That is badass you rode that bike out there. It's a little crazy to do on a harley with street tires, but you went for it anyway. Awesome.

Dirtmongrel - If you googled "bathing place", indian, and pine barrens you would have came up with Batsto. Looking at a map there are only 4 main bridges over this entire river in the heart of the pine barrens at Hampton Gate, Hampton Furnace, Quaker Bridge, and Pleasant Mills. (an old bridge at Lower Forge was partially removed) I believe this is also the biggest Bailey Bridge in the Pine Barrens. Located on the old Tuckerton Stage Rd, (Southern Portion) this main PB road gets some very heavy traffic at times.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bailey_bridge

Some interesting reading on that location here, as it has some neat history.

Happy pollen season riding!

Kevin, I love the history, I love the search, but the translation is flawed a bit. It’s not an Indian word (from my research). The name is derived from the Swedish batstu, bathing place; the first bathers were probably the Lenni-Lenape Indians.

Lenni-Lenape Indian Translation
English: bathe; to bathe
Lenape: tixmwi


English: bathroom; bathtub; a place to bathe
Lenape: hnta tixmwink


English: he bathed him
Lenape: thixmuhlao


English: he bathes
Lenape: tixmu


English: I bathe
Lenape: ntixmwi



English: a deep place (see xitkwk)
Lenape: mxitkwk


English: a deep place full of water
Lenape: xitkwk


English: a fenced-in place
Lenape: mnxkhasik


English: a place from which the water has receded
Lenape: wnhikahlak


English: a place to dance
Lenape: kntknk (w. enta)


I’m sure you can see my confusion in finding the bridge

Indian town names http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~njmorris/general_info/indian.htm

Indian river names … crap can’t seem to find it, but this site explained how and why they got their names, I'll update if I can find it

Hey, no problem. I read it in a Henry Charlton Beck book. Just trying to move the tag along.

yes yes PeterK, as I said a couple of posts up I don't think it would be 1/4 mile round trip.... the problem is I forgot sunday was mothers day. I started tearing into the wifes XT225 for a tune up and everything started going backwards. The carb was gummed up like nothing I've ever seen before the float valve is siezed in place, the tank has succumb to the nasty rust monster, the petcock leeks... there are parts all over my garage...only good thing is her battery didn't die over the winter.

I don't want to grab a tag if I can't place a new one. I did actually think about pushing it there, but what fun would that be

thats my sad story
