Hey thanks! I am off for a Vermotn road trip to try to finally get to Lewis, Vermont, one of the last six towns in my 251 quest. Thanks for the good wishes.

I would have liked my "What Would Jessamyn Do?" t-shirt idea to have happened by now so we could all be wearing it today.

Happy birthday dear Jessamyn, hope you have a wonderful day!

251 i the State? Man... we have 199 in my county alone. Hitting everyone in the State would take a long time I think.

Happy birthday, hope it is fun

Oh well. Happy Birthday Jessamyn!

Happy birthday! And that 251 Club is possibly the single most charming thing I have seen this year.

First I thought "Well, Washington is SO much bigger than Vermont! It just wouldn't be possible here."

Then I Googled it and learned there are 76 towns in WA and 205 cities and now I'm wondering how rude it would be to totally swipe the idea and set up a website for "The 281 Club." (Pretty rude, probably.)

Still though, neat!

posted by hippybear at 4:45 PM on September 5, 2010


ErkiaB: but if you add in all the census designated places and unincorporated communities, you'd be up to 766 places, which is more appropriate for a state of WA's size.

Hey thanks everyone!

We really did manage to go to Lewis Vermont, population zero. It was not as difficult as it seemed at our attempt last year. n_o_d brought his guitar and sang me the birthday song he wrote [soon to be on MeFi Music]. We also hit Granby and Maidstone VT which means I have two towns left to visit in Vermont (I was wrong about there being six). Very exciting. Drove around some more. Saw a double rainbow [srsly!]. Had a great dinner at the Miss Lyndonville Diner. Now home with snacks and about to watch Anvil! (last night's movie MacGruber was only okay). I really appreciate the birthday wishes, I peeked in on them via phone when I could get service, which was sort of rarely.
