Don't be ashamed of your Amish heritage, MP

Looks like they're getting more and more numerous all the time! And they're spreading out!

We have a Mennonite community in Montezuma Georgia. Their restaurant is fantastic. They have a phone and a website but no credit cards are accepted.
Bring cash, because just look at the food: http://home.earthlink.net/~mennonite/Yoders.htm
That's a slice of Southern heaven right there.

Wow....I had no idea we had that here. I'll have to visit one day....probably after a good long ride so I can dig in!
PS....I'm gonna get a PSE or Sammick in a couple weeks. Care to visit the indoor range?

I did just order a new string for my bow. I haven't shot it in a long time. If I'm in town (going to NASA in a bit) I'd love to.

As chris.... Can probably testify we have an amish community in central Il too. Nice furniture and good food. I stop at a place called Amishland every time I go down south. It's a buffet, furniture store, and antique shop all in one.

Yesterday the wife and I had to stop by the Amish lady selling baked goods at the side of the trail.
It was not diabetic friendly but I ate it and it was dam good and than I did 38Mi on mountain bike to work if off.
