So I’ve been thinking about the new places I want to check out in Rolla and the places that I have been. I want to include the surrounding areas in this blog, too. After all, Rolla will be my departure location but the destination is unknown. I’ve composed a list that I want to continuously update, like a checklist of places to visit near home. This list can include parks, rivers, events, restaurants, any location of interest. Or even a topic to investigate.


Where I want to go.
