I have done some exploring of Springfield and the surrounding areas. I must admit most of the exploring was need driven. For example, my apartment does not have a pantry. I have a lot (and I mean a lot) of kitchen "stuff", so I needed to find something that would could be used as a pantry. I have been in every "hole in the wall" place in Springfield in an attempt to find something within my budget. (For those of you who can hardly contain your excitement, yes, I have found something. No, you can't see it. It is in need of some major work or TLC as I like to call it. Don't worry I have taken some before pictures and will post those and after pictures once the renovation is complete!) I also needed a Target and Dick's Sporting Goods fix, so I found both of those stores in the next town.
