    Andover

    While Andover isn’t that far from me and we used to ride motorcycles out that way often, I’ve never seen any Amish out there nor White top buggies. They’re kind of cool looking.

    White Top Buggy

    The white top buggy is actually kind of pretty. I imagine they are a lot cooler in the heat of Summer as well. Thanks Don for stopping to take these pictures and share them with us.

    Your photos and “travelogue” are, as usual, much appreciated, Don. I would agree with Debbie H about those white topped buggies being cooler in the summer heat. I also find it interesting about the more modern signage in this conservative group. This is just more proof that “the Amish” can’t be pigeon-holed. Their diversity is apparent to all who pay enough attention!

    Thank you again! And Godspeed on your continuing travels.

      The Nebraska Amish have been called one of the plainest groups, though in contrast to the Swartzentruber churches, they all use the SMV triangle, and there are actually 5 or 6 subgroups, some of whom are more progressive on technology. Several years back I was surprised to meet a couple of Nebraska Amish businessmen with cellphones (“dumb” phones not smartphones, but mobile phones nonetheless).

    Thanks...

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. And as always, thanks to Erik for giving me the opportunity to share some of my Amish visits here on AmishAmerica. Alice Mary, you really hit the nail on the head — the Amish can not legitimately by pigeon-holed, but rather each community and even each person is totally unique. Far too many have yet to see the truth of that.
