the super fabulous road trip of pure awesomeness {3}...

Finally the piece de resistance of all of the road trip posts! Click here for posts #1 & #2, and catch yourself up on the best road trip to ever occur. So, what was the goal of 'operation drive a bazillion miles, in the pouring freaking rain, on streets with highly inappropriate names'? Well, it was to finally reach our destination of Port Angeles/Forks/La push. Obvi. So, we stayed the night in the cutest city also know as Port Angeles then drove the HOUR to Forks (pretty sure S. Meyer lied about how long/boring that drive is...or maybe the drive would have seemed like it was only ten minutes long had Edward been driving us and we could have been preoccupied with his stone cold glittery foxy self).

After the hour long drive, 6 or 7 road rage outbursts from Bff Jil, and listening to The Twilight Saga Soundtracks...we finally made it to Forks, Washington. Holler. Be prepared...there are about a bazillion pictures in this post. Enjoy...

I would love to go on and on about how delish the mushroom ravioli was at the restaurant that was the location of Edward and Bella's first date...but the menu didn't look all that appetizing. We were bad Twilight fans and went to Downriggers for round two and had scrumptious seafood. Don't judge us...

You best believe Bff Jil and I went and chatted up the ladies who pretty much know all things Twilight. They gave us maps and everything so we could commence our own little solo tour of Twi-World...

Also, since it was just a two person road trip adventure...there are many pictures of Bff Jil and I doing the exact same thing...one of her...and then one of me. We should have trailed some cute boy along with us to do all our picture taking business...

Why no, we did NOT find a boy to schlep around and take our picture all day long. But Bff Jil has some serious brains and pulled her big ol' Tahoe up as close to the sign as possible, balanced my camera in the window, set the ten second timer, and then hauled ass up the little hill so we could snap this photographic gem...

We then of course had to snap solo pictures of ourselves with the glorious welcome to Forks sign. This is Bff Jil...

and this is me, myself, and I...

We then ventured to one of the 75 Twilight stores that are located in the lovely Forks, Washington. We had to pick up some souvenirs for our friends who were not able to come on the trip with us...and to pose with Edward...

Or in my case...to molest the cardboard Edward cutout. Don't judge me. He enjoyed every single second of it...*ahem*...


Bff Jil found another Edward while in Forks (srsly. homeboy is EVERYWHERE all the time in those parts). She was giving him a lil' smooch...

After we found 'Edward' and photographed him to death, we began our self-guided tour through the ginormous metropolis known as Forks. Which started with visiting Bella's truck, which was SO not her truck. This truck was too nice and totally RED...pretty sure Bella's actual truck is beat to hell and kinda orangish...

I am pretty sure that Jil was thisclose to refusing to pose with the truck because it was so NOT legit...then she got over it and slapped a smile on her face so I could snap a quick picture. Say cheese...

Apparently this is Bella's house. See there is even a little sign that says 'Home of the Swans'. But this is not really her house (fakers)...it is some other people's house who don't mind allowing thousands of Twilight fans to take pictures of their home, as long as you don't go in their yard. Pretty sure that is a shanking offense or something...

Next stop was the Forks Hospital...where Carlisle works. Yeah, he does so work there. We have proof...

We also have almost identical poses in these pictures. Odd. Oh, and Dear Guys Who Were In The Building Where This Sign Hangs, we totally heard you making fun of us. Shut your faces. Love, Me...


We then ventured on over to Forks High, pulled over with the quickness in front of this sign, jumped out, snapped a picture of me...


snapped a picture of Bff Jil, and then ran like morons back to the car that we left running, and booked it. Why the mad photo dash? We were completely worried that the high schoolers would judge us for posing in front of their school...

Oh hiiiiii, The Cullen's (faux) household. Okay, really Forks?! Is this the best home you could come up with? I mean the Cullens are freaking loaded...you best believe their casa is like something you would see on MTV Cribs (whoa. i just made myself feel old)...

Isn't that Esme just a doll? She even left a sweet little note just for Bff Jil and I...

Then it was time for two fierce members of Team Edward to cross the infamous treaty line and venture into wolf territory. Things could get a little dicey folks...

Things did get dicey. As soon as we passed the sign for La Push it started to get way windy...and then the rain began. We were SO not feeling the rain, but being the stellar Twilight fans that we are we continued on...

Bff Jil snapped this because, and I quote, "Meh. That looks like it is high enough it may have almost-killed Bella when she jumped, yeah?" Um...yeah....

La Push was actually super pretty. I mean it was nicer then Forks...and the ocean was beautiful. But like I said, it was raining, we were not in the mood to walk along the beach in the rain, wearing flip flops, so we parked the car...

Snapped a photo of me, freezing my arse off...

and one of Bff Jil, freezing her arse off...

With that our trip to Forks/La Push was done. We booked it back to Port Angeles and spent the rest of the day eating, shopping, and going to see 'Sex & The City 2'. It was legit my friends...okay actually it was kind of a let down (we did the entire tour in less than an hour) and slightly ghetto BUT it was still a blast! I would recommend y'all making the trip up there if you ever get the chance!

xoxo

Emily Sue said...

okay, i love the sign of "the treaty line" that slays me! sounds like a very fun trip!!

Marci Darling said...

I appreciate you freaking out at all the more than minor discrepancies (hello forks, that is SO NOT the cullen house, srsly)

and i don't judge you for round 2. the food would end up being sucky at bella italia, just sayin.

groping action, nice.

Jayde said...

I am super dooper jealous and kind hate you a little.
(But really I love you! haha)
I am SOOOO going to Forks/La Push/Port Angeles/Seattle when I eventually get my ass up there!

Mar said...

Damnit... If only I could fit another week into my States vacay this year :|
The posts about your roadtrip alone crack me up, so the actual trip must have been hilar!

Ashton Dene' said...

You are hilar. & bffJil obvi.

Glad you had fun.

xx

cheri said...

it looked like a fun trip, you girls smiling through the cold and all. i never really cared for twilight. i think bella is too pale, and i keep wondering why those 2 are fighting over a human who may as well be their lunch.

then, i heard jacob say, "i will always love you, bella. until your heart stops beating, i'll always be here..."

from SITS :)

Jilian said...

I totally missed this post yesterday..what!

Ok for all the twilight fans...uhm if you're in the US you are sooo not a Twi-hard Fan of all fans. One or two, 3 pictures that didn't turn out the best were of a WORLD map, yes World map..showing what crazy fans from across the world have vacationed in little Forks WA! Serioulsy puts all of us little people in check...like really coming from CA is nothing when you came from CHINA, or FRANCE, or AUSTRALIA! Those are some hard core fans...

And really..we call ourselfs fans, we didn't even eat at Bella Italia. Well let's be honest we totally would have if it opened earlier then would have headed over to Downriggers for dinner..because that's how we vacay. Food First!

The I's have it--Ivy said...

I want to go on a trip with you two!!! You are both hilar and you like food. You kept it real {looks high enough, Bella could have died part} {truck should have been more beat up and more orange} and several more! Just the fact that you went to begin with is cracking me up with jealousy!

Love you
