This week on Fork Journey, we're travelling all around North America to bring you the latest and greatest in the world of forks.
We've got Canadian forks, Christmas forks, Hybrid forks, Southern Forks. All the Forks you could ever want to see.
Maybe our forks will prove our point to that other point that our points are amazing and we are worthy to point out all of the points the point wants us to point out.
Forks with some Canadian Humor
The newest members of Team Fork Journey, Nicholas and Jeff spread some of their Canadian Humor all over Fork Journey.
Idaho isn't only known for the innovators of the Hybrid coaster and potatoes, they are also known for their amazing forks!! Matt and his wife Rose checked in with the following ...
The Many Forks of Idaho
Hybrid chopstick forks, silver, plastic, stainless steel, even decorative mini forks with handles that look like Christmas lights.
As fork enthusiasts, we see the beauty in every fork, and I do my best to convey that with my photography.
This controversial beauty is reviled by traditionalists, even mocked and cursed as being less worthy than a spork!
What kind of monster do you think I am?!? I wouldn't 'rank' my kids if I had any, so why would I do such a thing? I enjoy them all...
My wife shows off our prized 'Mega Fork' - It can obliterate even the biggest salad bar creation nearly instantly. It's like the gigacoaster equivalent of eating utensils.
Forks with Southern Charm
Randy shares with us how much those in the south enjoy forks
From California where we don't know the difference between Wood and Steel
Some of our Friday Night Fork Journey comments from the Fork Journey Facebook Page
We hope you enjoyed our weekly wrap-up of all things Fork Journey. Join us next week as we join Gary from Coasting with Culture as he checks out the forks of South Africa.
During our visit to the Boysenberry Festival we of course had to take a look at the progress of HangTime.
As you should know by now, the track has been completed and testing has begun (sadly not during our visit).
As you can see from the pics below, progress is now being made on the station, store and queue!!

Soon to be the home for all your HangTime needs
If you'll look closely, some of the windows already have glass
The station is coming along nicely
All new mural which will look great with the ride in action
So many twists and turns
Some landscaping should be starting very soon
This was also our first visit since the Sky Cabin reopened so we of course had to get some aerial shots
Switchbacks right in the middle of all the action
And in another bit of awesome news, Xcelerator was testing but sadly never opened while we were at the park. If it hasn't reopened already, it's most likely coming very soon.
Over the weekend we were invited out to Knott's Berry Farm to check out this years Boysenberry Festival.
This is one of our favorite events of the year at any park and this year was definitely not a disappointment. Great food, amazing park.
Let's get to the good stuff shall we!!

Welcome to the Knott's Boysenberry Festival!!
If you'd like to take some of the event home you can get your own Boysenberry Plant!!
But we're just here for the food. =)
Our first of the day, Pierogis and Short Ribs. Both were absolutely amazing of course. I'm also not a big "Sour Cream" person, but Boysenberry Sour Cream? I'm all over it!!
We also had to try the Coconut Macaroon, it was delightful and we still have one left. Guess what I'm eating after I finish this update. (Hey, I had a good workout today) =)
Some of the booths are inside, some like the Chicken Wings are outside.
Let's check out some of the amazing springtime decorations!!
Where's the fog? =)
Some amazing artwork was on display in Wilderness Dance Hall
Look closely at the Timber Mountain Log Ride one =)
Love the Huff and Puff ... still want a grown up version of this classic ride
Let's eat some more food shall we!!
Boysenberry Sausage ... this was quite simply my favorite thing we ate all day
Boysenberry Quesadilla and Boysenberry Cornbread. You can get the Cornbread at the Boardwalk BBQ.
Elote ... fantástico
The Boysenberry Hummus had a surprising kick to it, but it was yummy
Not usually a fan of Boba, but loved this.
Here's what's on the Tasting Card this year.
You have 8 items to try, but it's not one for each item. You could get 8 of the same thing if you want this year. A nice change that allows you to revisit some favorites later in the day. And that's what we did. We tried everything once, and then had our favorites again later.
Also, keep an eye on the a 'la carte prices, as the Macaroon is only $1.59 whereas most of the other items are $7-$8.
Sadly we forgot to go back and get some of this later in the day
A look at the plethora of Boysenberry Merchandise
We had an amazing time as always, the park was busy, but didn't seem too bad to move around and get food. All of the lines moved very quickly and we had a fantastic time.
Be sure to check out the Boysenberry Festival until April 9 . Click the link for full details.
We'll be back tomorrow with a full HangTime update!!
