    Very interesting link on comparative costs. The world of the Amish is much smaller geographically, so their necessary transportation needs are much less. I know people who commute 100km to Toronto every day. Obviously, that is going to be inefficient with a horse and buggy.

    I would hate a commute like that. Some of the Amish I know, for example those with relatives spread around the big settlements, make trips of up to around 15-18 or so miles, which is nearing the max that a horse can do w/out rest. It takes around 2 hours for those long ones. Farther than that and a lot of times they’ll just hire an ‘Amish taxi’.
