Meet the Author


When Ericka Chickowski was a kid, her parents told her she had too many recreational interests. Little did they know these would serve her well in her career as a freelance writer. Over the better half of a decade, she has covered everything from river rafting to llama trekking. Ericka's travel stories have appeared in publications such as The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Alaska Airlines Magazine, and Midwest Airlines Magazine. She is also a respected technology journalist who has garnered awards from the Society of Professional Journalists for column, feature, and humor writing.

Ericka grew up under the shade of Washington's evergreens. She learned to appreciate the state's diverse landscape from the backseat of a minivan during family road trips. Once she learned to drive herself, her wanderlust and love for the outdoors sent her on a lifelong quest to explore the nooks and crannies of the state, from the windswept plateaus of dry Eastern Washington to the mossy rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula. In spite of her appreciation for nature, she still thinks one of the prettiest views of Mt. Rainier is from Red Square at the Seattle campus of University of Washington, her alma mater.

Though Ericka settled down several years ago in a San Diego beach cottage with her husband, Paul, and her lovable mutt, Sandy, she regularly visits the trails, museums and restaurants of her home state. In fact, during the course of her research for this book she logged more than 2,000 miles along Washington's highways and byways. Her quest to find the coolest roadside eateries, the funkiest museums, and the grandest vistas keeps her coming back time and again.

I personally don't care, but there may be people who don't want the reviews of a book they're considering buying clogged with RPs. So, I'm giving you guys step-by-step instructions on how to get to the internet at large on a Nook Simple Touch, so you may go to a role-playing site and RP there. 1.) Press the n button at the bottom of your Nook to spawn the main menu. 2.) Tap on the rightmost icon, for settings (on Nook Simple Touches with GlowLight?, it may be the second-to-rightmost or the rightmost; I dont know) to enter the settings menu. 3.) Tap on the "Social" option, which is the second from the bottom. If you are not connected to Wi-Fi at this point, it will prompt you to connect here. 4.) Tap on the topmost option, "Link to Facebook, Twitter, and Google" 5.) If you have a Google account linked, unlink it; this exploit is on the login page and therefore will not be usable if you have a Google account linked to your device. 6.) Tap the "Link your account" button below the Google icon. 7.) Beneath the "Sign in" button is a hyperlink that reads "Can't access your account". Tap that. 8.) At the bottom of the screen, on the left side, is a link that reads "Google home". Tap that. 9.) Type the URL of your intended destination into the Google search bar. Note that there are many flaws in the browser, it wasn't intended to be used full scale like this. The flaws I've noticed are: A.) It does not work after you manually scroll. It works fine after "autoscrolling", like if you click on something on Wikipedia and it takes you to the middle of another article. It lets you scroll as much as you want to see the page you're on...but as soon as you've done so you can't follow any hyperlinks. You have to go back by clicking the back arrow near the top of the screen, and from there reperform steps 5 and beyond. B.) No cookies. This means that if you log in somewhere, then leave the browser, and start over, you have to log in again, even if you clicked "Remember my login" or "Stay signed in" or something like that. C.) No Flash. This means no YouTube, and some chatrooms don't work.
