You need to head to downtown Pittsburgh and see my buddy Toby's art installation! It's on Sixth St. opposite Heinz Hall. Super cool and fun. The details are amazing! www.pghrobotrepair.com It's where I go for all my robot repair needs.
There's no trick to having an adventure if you spend a bunch of money, travel hundreds or thousands of miles, or pay someone to organize it. But the adventures that I find the most interesting are the ones you cob together yourself with available gear and friends and access by walking out your front door.
