All good things must come to an end . . . and so it was with the TAC Amish Rally. But, this end was pretty special, and very Amish!
Our GPS routed us out of the little town of Walnut Creek on some key back-roads. Who would be out on these isolated thoroughfares early on a Sunday morning? Amish going to church, of course! We encountered droves of Amish walking, biking, and buggying to church. It was hard to tell who was more amused -- us slowly making our way down the road and gawping at the Amish -- or the Amish goggling at our van and little Airstream! Knowing that some Amish don't like to have their picture taken, I was very stealthy with my photoing.
The pictures, not great quality, were taken through the dirty van window while driving on a bumpy road, but I hope you can get the impression of a solemn Amish procession on a quiet Sunday morning.
This was the end of the Amish rally, but before signing off this blog entry I want to record one incident for the archives. As we were hooking up in the morning and I was backing the van under the hitch Tom shouted for me to "back forward -- back forward!" I am still trying to figure out what direction that is!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
