In the 1980s, I met one Amish young man. Somewhere between Scottsburg and Salem Indiana, there is a community of them, and I was living in Scottsburg at the time. I only on rare occasions drove to Salem, and yet I managed to see their buggies on the road along the way.
I think that this young man may have taken a job in Scottsburg. I think that the Amish sometimes do this to make ends meet.
A had a casual conversation with the young man and my impression was not favorable. He didn't seem to know hardly anything. He was also waiting for someone to drive him home in a vehicle, oddly enough. Maybe it is okay since he wasn't the driver.
