"Retreat your outpost": defunct terminology?

In Millard Hopper's 1941 Win at Backgammon he writes, "Always retreat your outpost first," and I don't find "outpost" in any of the five glossaries I've checked (including Bill Robertie and Backgammon Galore). Is this a dead term for back men? Or for the men on one's 8-point? And by "retreat" he obviously means "advance," so is that a misprint? Thank you!
