    You see them all over around here, I just thought that I'd try to find a group of them together. I used to go to this store a lot and it's neat to have the buggies lined up right by the cars.

    Great find, bc219!! I was intrigued by your post. Google tells us:

    “Nappanee is the center of one of the largest Amish settlements in the United States. Nearly 2,500 Old Order Amish live, work and interact with residents and visitors.”

    The Challenge? Have a look at my attachment. See if you can find more Amish transport in the local area.

    Here is some more stuff that I found. I even have several small Amish schools on here. There are two other nearby towns, Middlebury and Shipshewana that are also filled with Amish...

    I guess I accepted my own challenge! See attachment. The 12 new finds have white placemarks. We now have 30.

    Did you notice in the June Sightseer that just nine Amish transport sightings got "Placemark of the Month"?

    Another challenge - find a greater density of Amish rigs than this!

    Here are 30+ Amish carriages, NE of Topeka, Indiana.

    No horses, so perhaps it's a carriage builder? Perhaps they're in for a 5000 mile service??

    Does anyone know?
