Via the Smart B's, Trashy B's comes a great little story about the real town of Forks...
A little disappointed that the next Twilight book isn't coming out? Need a dose of hard, white, sparkle in your life? Visit Forks, Washington, and head down to La Push! Give blood at a blood drive organized by the... Cullens. Go and enlarge the economy of a town that was rapidly going downhill due to the fall off of timber mills and logging. They're eager to welcome you, and have really done an amazing job of recreating a fictional place in a short time.
This is the SECOND COOLEST THING that has happened because of the Twilight books. I still think the FIRST coolest thing is that Gail Gauthier Book Evangelized her hair stylist. That is still my all-time favorite Twilight tale.
I recommend stopping by Sol Duc Hotsprings on your way - beautiful scenery, and nice warm springs as long as you don't mind sniffing a little sulfur...
I remember a long-ago road-trip vacation with my parents that involved traveling through Oregon and Washington--one memorable time, we drove into the Quinault rain forest (which isn't too far from Forks). Pacific NW rain forests are gorgeous!
