I remember I sent my players wandering around the Karameikos map from the Expert set for a while, and then started them on the voyage to the Isle of Dread. I had this whole campaign arc planned where the black pearl at the island's center would be used to defeat our evil overlord... but the campaign kept getting derailed by those daily checks to see if they get lost. They wandered all over the ocean, their ship's crew being gradually whittled down by weresharks and i don't know what else, until they were finally all-but decimated by a random pirate attack. The PCs survived, clining to their wreckage, and finally drifted to an island where I gave them a reasonable climax and let them retire.
