Mission Accomplished!
Avid exchangers Neil and Shari Laack recently pushed the 50th pin into
their U.S. map — and achieved their goal of visiting every state. The
Laacks hatched their ambitious plan while enjoying an exchange to
Hawaii 12 years prior, and had been quite busy exploring the country
ever since. Finally, last year, Neil and Shari headed for the rolling green
hills of northern Idaho, state number 50. Resort staff caught wind of the
milestone, and was ready to greet the couple with a welcome sign, gift
basket, and a live serenade by an Air National Guard Band! Best of all,
Neil and Shari adored Idaho, touring its northern panhandle, admiring
the rushing waterfalls near the Canadian border, and dining at a rustic eatery in Spirit Lake.
Although each state visit was unique, Shari says it has made her appreciate how small the world can be, too:
“The more we travel, the more we find people we have things in common with!”
Island Interlude
After a whirlwind Christmastime exchange to Orlando with their
family of 11, Ramona and Paul Rathbun were craving an intimate island
escape to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. As luck would have
it, “upon returning, we received another welcome confirmation notice,”
Ramona says. They were headed to St. Kitts! Less than three months
later, the couple was strolling the shores of the picturesque West Indies
haven on another — yet altogether different — Interval exchange. Both
avid golfers, Ramona and Paul enjoyed playing the lush greens of the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, set against the spectacular
backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. And with a week to themselves, they created special memories
exploring the 65-square-mile island, from lively Frigate Bay to the verdant slopes of Mount Liamuiga. The only negative,
Ramona says: “Our week went by too quickly.”
