Another great Low tech but Good way is with a map called Amish Highway and By Ways.
We found the Combination of the two as well as Street Smarts put us where we wanted to go all the Time.....and Fun Too. Jakob

Our Inspiration

This page was inspired by not one but several trips to Amish Areas in Ohio, Indiana, and other areas.  However the site became a reality after one memorable trip to Amish Country in Ohio.  It was a wonderful trip and this site is dedicated to that Experience, and I would like to share that with my sister readers and their Families.

There is a wonderful Inn which was such a wonderful experience for my husband Jakob and I.  This inn was called the Barn Inn. It is located north of Millersburg.

I will be telling more about this place but you can find out about it in our Visit Section

Traditional Leather Waist Belts a Specialty
R.W.Leather in Sugarcreek, OH 44681
My friend and I went into this Store and they have the Real Stuff.  My belt has held up better than any I have ever Bought.  There was an Amish lady there, dressed in Traditional Amish Work Garb,who after I measured the belt to my Waist, deftly and Expertly trimmed and punched the belt blank in just an Amish Minute. They are easy to find but out of the Way.  If you are up more than a day you are up to poke around the Roads anyway.  They are sooooo... worth Finding...    We will have links soon to work on GPS....Jakob

What ever happened to Old Roy Underhill on the Woodwright's Shop Turns out he is going strong on PBS.  If you haven't been living under a rock or without TV the Woodwright's Shop is a fun place where he shuns electric tools and does all work by Hand. 
    This is something the Amish may well employ where needed.  They have both techniques and quality goods because of it.   He (Roy)has shown how everything made by handcraftsmen in mainly Wood, but Metal and Leather also, can be accomplished in not too long of a time.   He supports and Talks about Classic Williamsburg on the show.   He  was raised in Washington, DC and was the first master housewright at the Colonial Williamsburg reconstruction. Since 1979 he has been the host of the PBS series The Woodwright's Shop. As of 2004 the show was the longest-running PBS "how-to" show.    Most of the Barn stuff he has shown is right on..   He has done some Timber Framing as well.   He brings Hand Carvers and Furniture builders on the Show......  Jakob
Hey!, Sarah and I have Started to Square Dance on Thursday Nights....   What a kick!  I never thought I would enjoy it so much.   Everyone there except for 3 or so is older than I am.   It is Fun but we are getting a Work Out, Though......Jakob
