A penny for your thoughts: Touring the Amish counties?
So, yea.. it is Monday :madman:
Looking around the web for some more of the off-beaten paths in the lovely state of Ohio, and I came across (not sure how?).. the Amish counties.
At first thought, it looks like it might be pretty fun, less travelled roads, dirt roads, gravel roads, some cool little shops to visit; and best of all, it is quiet. Not the noisy city-life and cubicle meanderings that I've grown accustomed to. For a weekend trips, seems like it might be a good outting.
A couple downsides that I can think of off hand:
- The horse.. excretions. Yea.. fun.
- Getting away w/o getting away.. this goes to saying, that while I am getting away from city life, I'd still take my technology (Ipod, GPS, etc.). As I do consider myself culturally aware, I'm not sure how this would come across up there. From my visits overseas, you tend to get better, service?, if people think you're not a visitor.
- Camping spots: Admittedly, this is something I haven't even looked in to.
Does anyone have any experience or words of wisdom they would like to share?
