Simploring 2018 (110) Wild Edge

For my simploring tour on Saturday, December 22nd, I picked Wild Edge from scoop.it SL Destinations. Wild Edge is a moderate homestead sim owned by Funky Banana (funkybananas). He describes it as “a calm and relaxing wilderness to enjoy, explore and escape“.
What caught my eyes first was that just about one-third of the island is inhabited and cultivated, the rest of the island is occupied by snow covered hills.

On the first view wild edge looks like an outpost somewhere near the Artic or Anartic. In the bird’s eye view of Wild Edge you see a gravel runway for small planes, a radio antenna, a water storage, quite large inlet and a few buildings. Most of the shore is rocky but there’re some beaches too. I began my simploring tour at the antenna.

Next to it is the wrack of a plane. Walking along the shore you get to a small residential home with some chickens outside, a small chicken farm. I continued walking along the shore and came to a Christmas tree farm just at the end of the cultivated area where the snowy hills begin. Honestly, I was surprised finding a Christmas tree farm here. Who the heck buys Christmas tree’s here?

Impressions of Wild Edge (2) – the residential house

From there I went to the only larger residential home at Wild Edge. A really nice house which is fully furnished and decorated for the season inside. Close to the residential house is a grainfield with a tractor.
My next stop was a fishing and hunting hut at the end of the inlet and from there I walked along the shore of the inlet. I found a nice place to sit and watch just close to the fishing and hunting hut. And I raptor which had just caught a fish. At the entrance of the inlet is a rock, that attracts a lot of birds. I walked back along the inlet and explored the beach with it’s campfire and fishing pier.

I ended my visit at the gravel runway and had a look into the garage and at the plane parked there.

Wild Edge is layed out as an outpost, most probably used for hunting and fishing or just to watch flora and fauna of a wilderness. I really enjoyed my visit and the concept. In my opinion just the Christmas tree farm, the small chicken farm and the grainfield with the tractor don’t really fit in. I’d prefer a few more hunting huts to make it a pure outpost.
For sure, you can take some great pictures at Wild Edge and enjoy nature and simplicity. Thank you Funky Banana (funkybananas) for sharing your place with the public!
