JUNE 9, 2012

Another great day of riding.

Started out with 7 bikes and 10 people.





Pulled out around 9:10 and headed for the Head of the River Church in the Tuckahoe area.



I expected traffic on Route 49 but it was pretty clear.

Headed out to Port Norris and Shell Pile.

Which way was that again?





And a pile of shells.



Stopped at the dock by the State Police station.



No one looked scared so I guess no one was a fugitive in our group !

This is what I was looking at in the puddle.



A horseshoe crab.
There was one walking across the street at the intersection too.
There was also one taking a long nap in the center of the intersection that the birds were interested in!

We head out for Greenwich and the Tea Burners Monument.







The plaque is looking a little deteriorated but there are three Indians on there holding boxes of tea.



Actually the Native Americans were not involved in this incident.
The locals dressed up like Indians to disguise themselves.
Poor people are always getting blamed for something the did not do !

By the way, the people/perpetrators names are inscribed on both sides of this monument !



Greenwich is a very interesting old town that deserves another look sometime.

Off to lunch.



Home of the Floating Cabin.



The whale mural.



Other maritime stuff.





And not so maritime stuff.





We had a nice lunch at The Bait Box Restaurant.











Did a short devotional about how I came up with the name Throttling UP.



And headed on our way home via Shiloh and Centerton.

Great day of riding.
Great weather.
Great fellowship.





We planned a ride to Toms River on Sunday, July 15 after first service to go to the White Castle restaurant.
Details as we make them up !

I had shared on our last trip how I came up with the name Throttling UP.

I wanted to share it here also.


Throttling UP

I did not want a clichey'ey type name like other motorcycle groups, or even like other Christian Motorcycle groups.
I wanted something that says what we do as motorcycle riders as well as something simple for us to keep our focus where it should be.

THROTTLING

When you twist the throttle back you are making a conscious input to get a desired response.
You want to go forward.
That's Throttling.
That's Action.

It is a little tough to say sometimes, but it is what we do.

The second question I thought about is:
Where are we going?

As Christians our destination is Heaven.
When Jesus rose from the dead that was an upward direction.
Jesus spent 40 days with His disciples after his resurrection and while He spoke to them on the Mount of Olives it says:
"..., while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight."
Once again, up.

The Bible always describes God's "abode" as being upward from our perspective.

So I thought Throttling UP sums this up pretty well.

Philippians 3:14 says: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

I press
That is action.

Press means to make to run or flee, put to flight, drive away.
Sounds contradictory when the idea I had was heading toward something.
But while we are pressing onward toward the mark we are also at the same time fleeing the past life.
We are fleeing from the flesh and moving on toward the Spirit.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16

I press toward = denoting motion

I press toward the mark
As in, toward a mark, a goal, a direction, a destination, the end that one has in view.

I press toward the mark for the prize
In Roman times they ran to receive a laurel wreath crown at the Olympics. That is exactly what the meaning is here.
Today we would say "He is running for the Gold Medal".

I ask myself, what prize am I looking for ?

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God
God's way. God's direction. Up, Upwards, Above, On High.
It is the divine invitation to embrace the salvation of God.

What is the calling that God has for all of us?

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
To be in Christ Jesus.
To be in His Son.
The One who gave Himself for us.
Who took our place on the cross.
Who took the punishment that we deserved because of our sins.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, That
whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Our only call to action by God is to BELIEVE.
We do not follow a set of rules that say "Do this." and "Don't do that.".

The Bible says:
This is the work of God, that you believe on Him whom He has sent." John 6:29

That is the only work we need to do to get into Heaven.

To have everlasting life UP in Heaven with God our maker.

Jesus also said He is coming back for us.
Coming in the clouds of heaven.

How do you picture that?
Him sitting on a cloud with His legs crossed Buddha style?
Standing?
Surfing?
Riding a horse on the clouds?
Riding a motorcycle on the clouds?

The question I ask myself is, Am I prepared to meet Him?
Is my Throttle in the Action position.

The logo I made for our group shows a road going off into the distance.
On the horizon the road makes an abrupt turn upwards with an arrow at the top denoting the final direction of travel.

When we get to the end of our road, which direction is it going?

Sunday Ride planned for July 15, 2012.

We are going to lunch at the White Castle in Toms River.

We are leaving from the church right after our first service.
That should be 10:45, no later than 11:00.

If you join us for church or meet us after church we will head up Union Road to Route 54 to Route 206.

If you want to meet us on the way we should be at the Red Lion Circle at 11:45.

Then heading East on Route 70 to CR 530 in Whiting and taking that to Toms River.

We should be at the White Castle by 1:00 at the latest if you would like to meet us there.



Church is located at 4630 Mays Landing Road, Vineland, NJ
Google GPS coordinates: 39.425306,-74.943555

Red Lion Circle at intersection of Route 206 & Route 70, Southampton, NJ
Google GPS coordinates: 39.887156,-74.741041

White Castle, 132 Route 37 E, Toms River, NJ
Google GPS coodinates: 39.963882,-74.189593



If White Castle isn't your thing don't let that stop you from riding with us.
There is a Sonic next door, a Subway and a Papa John's a block away.
Or bring your own lunch if none of these fit your diet.

After lunch we will be going to Whitesbog Village where they created the cultivated Blueberry bushes we see and the cultivated Cranberries we enjoy in New Jersey.

Then some nice back roads back to Vineland or Buena depending on where everyone wants to end up.

Fill up your gas tank before getting to the church.
It is 70 miles to the White Castle and another 20 miles before we stop for gas on our way to Whitesbog Village.
150 mile round trip.



Looking forward to it.

Still planning on doing the ride today.

Rain will be scattered and more towards afternoon.
The radar is very spotty with a few small rain spots.

If we change our minds I will post that after first service at around 10:45.

Change of plans.
Going to 54 Diner in Buena on Route 54.
Sorry for any inconvenience to anyone who was going to meet us on the way.

---------------------------

We had a nice lunch.



The three of us !



Very nice little diner.







Afterwards we rode to Glassboro for some Tag-O-Rama fun (post #8216).

It never did rain on us.
A couple of us were very hungry so we stayed local.

Next ride planned for Saturday, August 18, 2012.
Details up soon.

Our Third trip.

Saturday, August 18, 2012


Starting at the WAWA in Buena at the intersection of Routes 40 & 54.

Meet at 8:00 AM, Leave the parking lot at 8:30.

* Heading out by way of Centerton on back roads to Route 130
where it starts at the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
Nice ride up that part of 130 believe it or not !

* Getting off on NJ44 and going to the Nothnagle Log Cabin in Gibbstown.
"The oldest standing log cabin in North America, and possibly the oldest
standing wooden structure in the Western Hemisphere, sits right here in
New Jersey in the form of a simple log cabin built around 1638 by Swedish
or Finnish settlers.
"

* Just up the road is Fort Billingsport in Paulsboro.
"On July 5, 1776, one day after the signing of the Declaration of Independence,
the Congress of the United States of America made its first land purchase: a one
hundred acre plot of land located in what is now the Billingsport section of Paulsboro.
Fort Billingsport was constructed here in order to blockade the British fleet from
reaching Philadelphia."

* Then we head for lunch at the Woodbury Station Cafe in Woodbury.
The station was built in 1883. The cafe has a New Orleans flavor menu.

* From there we go the the town of National Park. A lot of Revolutionary War era historical events occurred here.
- James & Ann Whitall House built in 1748.
- Fort Mercer was built here in 1777 when for Mifflin was built on the Pennsylvania side.
- The Battle of Red Bank occurred here on October 22, 1777.
- You can view the Philadelphia Navy Yard across the Delaware River.
- Lots of memorials and walkways to enjoy at this nice park.

* Then head back to Buena through Cross Keys and Williamstown.

Another 100 mile ride.
