We spent the day touring amish country around our friends home. There is a very large population here in northeast Ohio ( I made a terrible mistake originally here in that I said northwest instead of northeast. Sorry about that). Almost every house we came to had clothes out on the line and all in typical amish colors. So that made discovering which farms are amish rather easy. That and seeing no utility lines going into the houses. It seems that some of the families are “cheating” though; they have solar panels installed on the roofs.
It was a good leisurely day. We went to several different stores; some for the amish and some for the tourists. Our hosts bought quite a bit of bulk goods (sugar and that sort of thing) to stock up. We bought a few things to weigh the car down a little more. If my wife buys much more I will have to rent a U-Haul trailer 🙂
Tomorrow we will hit the road towards home. We will likely take the State roads instead of the Interstate ones and spend an extra day.
