At Salkan, we’re firm believers that what you do on your adventures, and where you go, says a lot about who you are.  We talk about ‘The Outpost’ as an idea – a place in our wildest dreams. It’s as much about the journey getting there, as what it’s like when you arrive. Not restricted to one place, it could be a remote hut on an island or a bar in a bustling city, only known by few.

 

 

Since we’re in the mood of dreaming about future adventures, we’re sharing what The Outpost looks like to Will, co-founder here at Salkan.

 

The Outpost: Will Bouch

My outpost would be somewhere to escape, play around with ideas and build and make things. A mountain refuge picked up and put by the sea with a workshop and studio inside. A place to tinker.

The hut itself would have that cabin look. Like something that would be in a Wes Anderson film or Prospect Cottage on Dungeness. Timber cladding and a tin roof – very simple! Somewhere where the mountains and sea meet, plenty of nature and all four seasons of the year.

Inside would be somewhere between a workshop and art studio, a space to be creative and make things. Not too cluttered and plenty of space to think. Geoff McFetridge’s studio  would fit the bill.

I grew up sailing and spent a few years working on boats before setting up Salkan, so I would need something to get out on the water. Just like the cabin, something simple to play around with.

Cooking and food would also be part of what I imagine doing at The Outpost. Chef Eduardo Garcia throws some impressive meals together out in the wild in the Hungry Life Series. I wouldn’t mind cooking and eating this way at The Outpost.

The Craft of Travel

Travel doesn’t have to stop when you make it home, there is always room in your bag to bring that something special to remind you of your last trip.
