The Art of Walking Around

Drifters: John, Chris and Jacob
Ever feel like there's nothing to do?
Don't forget that even after you've run out of movies, grown tired of surfing the interweb, and are as broke as the U.S. Treasury, there's still stuff to do!
Some of my fondest memories didn't cost me a penny. All I did was follow these three simple steps and had a great time!
All you gotta do:
1. Get up
2. Go out
3. Walk around.
It doesn't really matter where you go. Actually, it's better if you don't "go" anywhere specifically. If you have a destination, that diminishes the possibility of coming across something interesting.
I can tell you from my own experience that having a destination would probably have eliminated many great discoveries, such as:
- The amazing joys of trying to catch a football with a shopping cart
- The enchanting underground network of service tunnels beneath the University of Iowa
- The abandoned clock tower on Chicago's Navy Pier
So get up, grab a friend, and go wander around like a directionless bison. It's fun!
