Hi Melissa,
Thanks for your comments on my blog--I enjoy yours as well!

I think I have only driven through Ashland when I was in Holmes for a summer--but never saw the Amish though I knew there were some communities west of the biggie.

Holmes/Wayne/Tuscarawas is one of my favorite places on earth.

by the way would you care to trade links?

Thanks!

Erik
