    Hello,
    maybe the only way not to be involved in an accident with a buggy would be that the car drivers go slowlier…
    Haaaa, those pictures of Ohio…

    I can recall at least a couple terrible accidents near Seymour here in Missouri. I am sure there are lots more too.

    Emma, you must know Ohio…they bring back great memories for me.

    Michelle do you see a lot of Amish traffic near your area?

    The Amish in southern Indiana are strictly farmers and merchants. No slow moving vehicle signs, very low oil lamps on the buggies at night and they have their own schools. The link above is to my Flickr site and leads to my Amish set. I’m amazed at your site and the different rules and types of Amish.

    Hi Cindy, thanks a lot, I took a look at your photos, they are really really nice. Is this Orange County you are referring to? The Amish settlement at Daviess County, not far from there, is my favorite of all that I’ve visited, partially for nostalgiac reasons.

    I wonder if you wouldn’t mind if I posted a few of your photos in a future post, with a link back to your site?

    Erik, it is Orange County, Indiana that I’m talking about. The ones in Daviess County are a little bit different than the ones around here, although it isn’t too far away. We go eat at the restaurant they run in Montgomery, Indiana sometimes.

    You may use any pics of mine you want, that’s why I sent you the link. I grew up playing with Amish kids at my aunt’s farm. I love your website, it’s so interesting to learn about the different Amish cultures.

    Thank you Cindy, glad to hear. I might post a few of your photos, they are great. The Orange County Amish are quite a bit more conservative than, say those in Daviess, from what I know. Anita Martin, one of the ‘Amish in Poland’ I’ve been writing about, is from that area. All-around friendly, open folks.

    Yes, they are very friendly folk, as most of them are merchants and depend on us “English” for business. There is no working in factories around here.

    Our Amish are a lot more conservative than the ones in Daviess County, but fit in very well around here. At a gas station one day, an Amish man walked in and the “regulars” (coffee drinkers) saw him, they all said “Hey, Ezra, how’s it going?” They’re wonderful neighbors and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

    Thanks so much for using some of my pictures. Check back from time to time, as I add new ones any time I get a chance to take them. Keep up the good work, this site is great!

    i think the point is here that too many people travel at unsafe speeds for anyone cause theyre in to muchof a damned hurry. if you leave early enough you need to rush so. SLOW THE freak down and smell the roses once and a while.
