Antikythera is a small, isolated Greek island at the edge of the Aegean Sea–situated between Crete and the Peloponnesian Peninsula–that is best known for two things–being incredibly idyllic yet secluded and being the discovery place of The Antikythera Machine (the ancient analog computer used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses). Despite being the ideal destination for quiet getaways and plenty of great shots for the ‘Gram, it’s a relatively uninhabited place with a total of just 20 permanent residents. This is where the Orthodox Church, the local council and you come in, because Antikythera wants to pay you to move there. They just launched a contest where you can get a monthly stipend of $572, free accommodations and even free food if you’re willing to move to the island and you have the ability to work as a fisherman, stock-farmer, builder or baker (“professions which can guarantee a decent income”). Candidates with a family that includes at least three children are also recommended because they want to keep the school open. It’s a remote location, and the island only has a few year-round operating businesses, but it’s astoundingly gorgeous. If you can work from anywhere, you might as well be working from a secluded Greek island, right?

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
