The Armed Traveler is a travel guide for anyone wishing to travel with firearms. Most of us don’t have the time, patience, or law degree required to wade through the varied laws across the nation. This book does it for you. But it’s not just dry facts, there’s some humor interspersed here and there.

Instead of telling you what sights to see and where to eat, this travel guide is here to help keep the local jail off of your itinerary. They don’t generally have good food there anyway.

Also, you get to be awesome by buying it.

Um, Jen?

I know, that sounds kind of funny, right? But it’s all true. This is the magic word


Oh, don’t try to say it. Use it when you checkout.

What’s in it for me?

It gets you $2 off the cover price.

And how exactly does that make me awesome?

Well, that tells the author that you came from here and I make a commission*. Also, 50 cents from every sale until the end of July goes to Bonnie to offset her expenses while she’s fighting Lyme Disease. (You’ve seen the re-enactment, right?) My silliness aside, it’s a nasty battle and she’s going to feel worse before she gets better. She’s documenting what and when she can. Your support goes a long way not only in paying the bills but in lifting her spirits.

So, head over to The Armed Traveler and use the magic word at checkout.

Want to be awesome and take your chances at a book? Hit Bonnie’s tip jar cause there’s going to be a copy in the raffle.

Big thanks to The Armed Traveler for the support.

*Wow! Look at you! All the way to the end and reading the footnote. I love you people. Here’s the special footnote secret, there’s another magic word. SQWTN2013 For you, it works exactly the same way. Only that one gives Bonnie both the commission and the 50 cent bonus through the end of July. Nothing changes for you after the end of July, that’s just when the bonus expires.


A Friend In Need

If you’ve been following along, you already know that our friend, Bonnie of Squeaky Wheel Seeks Grease, has been dealing with some monumental health issues on top of a very limited budget. You all chipped in and got her the exploratory surgery so now she’s at least got a plan of action.

Unfortunately, it seems the original quote for the cost didn’t include incidentals.  You know, things like lab work and she’s getting hit with extra that’s over and above the original estimate and without warning. Because everyone knows biopsies are elective, right? I know my bank account couldn’t just absorb an unexpected $350 hit.

Needless to say, it’s got her feeling stressed and panicked, none of which helps with her recovery. I’ll leave the details to her to share what she’s comfortable sharing, but if you’ve got some wiggle room, please hit her tip jar. We’re all broke, I know. We’re feeling at my house, and I’m sure you are too.

As Erin pointed out, we figured we were going to need to organize something for the follow-up. Medical bills do have a tendency to multiply. I know Bonnie really doesn’t want to be hitting the well again, but here we are.
