Explore your surroundings

Let’s be clear: If you’re at a friend’s place, which is next door to the site of a decades-old killing, explore your friend’s house, not the murder mansion.

The point is to be familiar with your surroundings so that, if and when the proverbial machete hits the face, you know the layout, including exits and hiding spots.
