One of the best things about making new friends, especially new friends who are new to the area, is that they want to do new stuff. And new friends wanting to do new stuff is a great excuse to go out and see stuff that you've lived near for almost your entire life, but have never gotten around to seeing.
Hence, my first trip to Amnicon Falls. Even though it's been just down the road from me for forever.
