Wander to a new place within 2 miles of where you live or where you work every day. Explore the locations around which you spend most of your life. Shop nearby, eat nearby, or just stick your head in and see what the people around you are doing. Ask shop owners to tell you about their store, even if it seems apparent. Discover what the world immediately around you has in store for you.
Simply visit nearby places you haven't been.


You're getting comfortable meeting people, and you're getting comfortable doing new things. Now it's about time to setup home base. How many places have you driven by without thinking about twice? What exactly does that import store you've walked by a million times sell? It's time to find out! Remember, there's no place like home.

Bonus points!

Walk there! The more of your area you can take in on your exploration, the better. See if you can keep up the previous months' goals- keep doing your skill if you like it, and keep meeting new people if you feel so inclined.

A Favor for the Author

You'll probably be able to figure out where I live in this month's challenge if you're wily. I can't ask that you refrain from stalking me, cause, well, you're only human. I just request that when you stalk me, you be attractive or come bearing muffins.

Founder and editor of The Brave New, Phil Warren is now an accordion player, a minister, a sonic weapons expert, a director, a photographer, a public speaker, and a bunch of other things. Mostly he's an adventurer though. An adventurer who smells nice. Except when he doesn't.

One part Burner and one part Engineer; I’ve lived through twenty-five-and-a-half winters, and aim to keep it that way. My world is a strange one, and it’s my goal to make it stranger.
