I can't believe it took me this long to check out this thread - you'd think after lurking for a couple of years I'd find it.... I must just be slow.
So, I'm super excited to see this come up here, because as soon as Wendy (my aunt), Danielle (a friend), and I got back from the Georgia signing, we decided we had to have a Twilight trip for the Breaking Dawn tour or release. We've got it entirely planned out, down to every place we want to visit and find and things we want to do there. I've even started making these (*cough*dorky*cough*) three-ring binders detailing every little part of our trip to give to everyone who is going with us (we have about 14 people in our group). The pages in it go over the plans for each day, the directions and details on each location (using information/directions from the books for places like Edward's meadow), funds, etc. It's extremely detailed, down to where we're lodging to what airline we're using, the cars we're renting (anyone want to guess what type of car?
) to where and what we're eating. The only things we're missing are dates.
It would be beyond amazing to meet up with a group from here. I agree that we should organize a huge trip, to meet up and have fun going through the settings of the book, doing the things the characters do (mushroom ravioli and Coke at La Bella Italia, anyone? Baseball? Cliff diving? Some motorcycle fun?)...
Our plan was to fly to Seattle and stay the night of Stephenie's Breaking Dawn date there (granted she has one, as she did last tour). And then from there head to La Push. (We're staying in La Push at the ocean park resort instead of finding a hotel). But if there was another time you guys wanted to go, our group would be willing to meet at another date - as long as it's not too soon. I've still got to have a job for a few months to pay for it. Of course, we're too poor to go to Volterra or extend the trip to Phoenix, but I think it'll be just as much fun sticking around the Forks/La Push/Port Angeles areas. We're planning a Volterra trip for when we're not on the verge of being poor college students.
I hope we can organize something!
Oh, if anyone wants the pages from my dorky little binders, let me know and I'd be more than happy to send them to you, once I get them all typed up. But I'm positive there's nothing in them you guys didn't already have in mind.
I ramble when I get excited, so I apologize. And I'm shutting up. Now.
