Neal and Leisa Laybourne of Barre, Vermont finished their 251 Quest with a flourish on May 11, 2015

quoteAfter more than a decade of fun adventures we finally finished visiting all of Vermont's 251 towns with the last stop in Hubbardton. Our daughter Julie Swee flew up from Florida to be with us on the final four-town trip. She was impressed by how fitting it was that our "historic" quest ended in the town where the only Revolutionary War battle was fought entirely in our state—or, what was to become our state! We received more "likes" (over 100) when we posted the end of our quest photo on Facebook than on any other entry we have made!

Now we apply the "skills" that we developed to find hidden gems in Vermont towns to all of our travels throughout this great country. Thank you so much for promoting this wonderful travel opportunity. Soon we will be heading back out for more Vermont adventures. We were not nearly as good at making discoveries in the beginning as we are now!

quote We read about the 251 Club in the Travel section of the Boston Globe and made our first trip to Vermont from our home in Boston on October 1, 2006. The day started in Vernon and ended in Bridgewater where we toasted each other with Long Trail drafts. Over the nearly 6 years it took us to complete the quest, we lived in Massachusetts, Alabama, and New York. Because of the 251 Club we LOVE Vermont and have decided to make it our retirement home in a few years!

In addition to the 251 towns, we also visited the three gores and Warner's Grant. It would take a much longer letter to begin to describe all the serendipitous 251 Club "magic" we experienced, such as arriving in Plymouth on the one winter day that the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site is open to the public and being treated to a sleigh ride (the first ever for Rebecca who is from the South).

We are so appreciative of having our eyes opened to this simple but wonderful way of exploring a beloved state. Now to start again. . .
