We stopped selling stuff. Here's why.

We stopped selling stuff. Here's why.

Reconciling ourselves to retail had never come easy.
We could never shake a deep concern about living in a world long past Peak Stuff, now glissading disastrously down the lee into consumer driven apocalypse.
So we stopped selling stuff.

New possibilities in the great outdoors

New possibilities in the great outdoors

August's Adventurous Ink is the ever inspiring Sidetracked. We caught up with cold water swimmer, freelance philosopher and co-host of the Women's Trad Festival, Gilly Mcarthur, to understand just how awesome Sidetracked's contributors really are.

A lot of people get in touch saying “I could never do that.” My response is always the same “You can. You just need to open up the possibility of doing it.”

I’m just trying to create moments when choices become more apparent, and people can make a positive decision that moves them forward.

Hell yeah, it's Alastair Humphreys!

Hell yeah, it's Alastair Humphreys!

Julys's Adventurous Ink is the latest from author and adventurer Alastair Humphreys.
This excellent tale of how he busked his way across Spain, with nothing but a violin to sustain himself, is really a story about how he rediscovered his sense of adventure as family life pressed in.
We had so many questions for Alastair that he recorded this video response to answer them all.

Going Wild is nothing new, says Indie Publisher of the Year Daniel Start

There have been back to nature movements since the beginning of industrialisation, in a backlash against Victorian pollution inspired by German environmental philosophy, with a lot of naked bathing, foraging and wild camping thrown in.

Rewild Yourself with Simon Barnes and a 'bottomless sit'

Rewild Yourself with Simon Barnes and a 'bottomless sit'

We humans are busy creatures, always getting on with something, always moving or talking or checking our phones. We have a terrible fear that if we stop for a moment we will miss something. The exact opposite is true.

All the endorphines! Ambassador Nikki Yoxall learns to surf

All the endorphines! Ambassador Nikki Yoxall learns to surf

Surfing has humbled me, reminded me of the joy of being a beginner. It has given me one more thing to try and factor into my life, but in doing so has forced the realisation that my time isn’t there to be balanced. Not to be spread thinly but to be lived deeply in the pursuit of happiness, fulfilment and feelings of contentment.

Why people run, with Simon Freeman of Like The Wind

Why people run, with Simon Freeman of Like The Wind

We see that society as a whole is moving away from mass consumerism to being more experience-focused. Running is probably benefiting from that.
As an activity, running has all the elements someone looking for experiences could hope for; community at times and solitude at others."

Yannick Schutz: communing with nature, connecting with family

A few years ago, I wouldn’t have envisioned living outside of a city.
Now I can’t stand a city for more than a day or two.
