Why couldn’t they just skip straight to when the real connections began?
So they did.
So they did. And their vision come to life was impressive, to put it mildly – safari tents, wood-fired pizza ovens, fire pits and stages and endless rows of inflatable couches to fall into and look at the night sky – but the people who came together were, as always, the stars of the show. I didn’t know everyone, but even complete strangers were only separated from me by a few degrees, which quickly disappeared as we all stood watching the incredible pink sunsets over the water or shimmied to some live music together in the barn. It made me wonder why I don’t already treat everyone like they’re just 48 hours away from being my good friend, someone I’ll visit when I make my way out to their city.
As the weekend’s activities kicked off, we had even more chances to get to know our fellow Outposters – nothing brings people together better like learning a new skill (hello, making fire with twigs), diving back into an old one (the cold waves were rough on a surfboard, but the impromptu beach party soothed bruised bodies and egos), or exploring unchartered waters (kayaking on Bodega Bay? Yes, please).
