CALIFORNIA

CARETAKER NEEDED for a mountain ranch in Pollock Pines, in El
Dorado County. A one bedroom mobile home is available in exchange
for help around the house and ranch. This is an l64 acre timber
property. I am leaning toward retired people or somebody who
would be around a lot but will consider anybody who brings a lot
to the table. There is room for horses on three acres already
fenced for the caretaker. Looking for somebody with experience in
carpentry, with handyman or handywoman skills. Somebody with
horse experience is a plus. Looking for a MacGyver type - meaning
a caretaker who knows how to do quite a few things, and if not -
knows how to find out how. Must be a self-starter and must have a
lot of your own tools. There are two trout streams on the
property and plenty of places to garden. An apple orchard that is
over one hundred sixty years old is still bearing sixteen
different varieties of apples. There are also raspberries,
gooseberries and loganberries to be harvested. I need help
restoring the house that has half fallen down and was built in
1869. The ranch is semi-remote, five miles to the closest
neighbor, but only fifteen minutes on good roads to Pollock Pines
with major shopping stores and schools. There is excellent cell
phone reception. The ranch is in generator country which means
you need to provide your own generator since there is no
electricity. We get quite a bit of snow in the winter so a
four-wheel drive is essential, or a pickup truck preferably. Dogs
are OK if they are confined to the caretaker’s area. No drug or
alcohol abusers please. There is a background check required.

CALIFORNIA

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. I have a
two bedroom/one bathroom mobile home trailer available (the
trailer appliances run on propane) in exchange for help around
the ranch and building tiny houses on trailers. Also possible is
a live-in situation in my house for the right person. I have been
inundated with replies so when responding please describe what
abilities you have and work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot but will
consider anybody who brings a lot to the table so to speak. There
is room for horses, over three acres, already fenced for the
caretaker. There is also a very rustic cabin and plenty of
trailer space available. Looking for somebody with experience
with horses or people with carpentry/handyman skills and business
management. A MacGyver type of person would be a plus. Must be a
self-starter and it would be great if you have a lot of your own
tools. A great deal of common sense is essential for living on a
ranch and I can't stress that enough. There are two trout streams
on the property and plenty of places to garden. Unfortunately
there is no 420 growing here. An apple orchard over one hundred
sixty years old is still bearing sixteen different varieties of
apples. There are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries
to be harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half
fallen down, as it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi remote,
located five miles to the closest neighbor, but only fifteen
minutes on good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores
and schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch
is in generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity! We get quite a bit of snow
in the winter so a 4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible
job opportunities with the right people but nothing going on at
the present moment. I need motivated people who want to help get
the business going again and expand to build tiny houses on
trailers. I have enough lumber cut and dried to build 10. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. Would like to find somebody interested in helping expand
my lumber, cabinets and furniture sales. Also interested in
turning the ranch into an equestrian campground and give guided
horseback riding on the property and the adjacent thousands of
acres of US forest land. I do have other caretakers so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

INSURANCE
 
Over the decades many of our advertisers and subscribers, both
property owners and caretakers/housesitters, have discussed their
healthcare situation and possible insurance options/alternatives
with us. We recently dropped our current medical insurance when
the premiums jumped to $2,000 per month with a $12,000 annual
deductible. We switched to a $354 per month healthcare program
called Medi-Share.
 
I wanted to send you some information about Medi-Share as I
thought you might be interested in their affordable healthcare.
Like us, you and your family could join their community of
250,000+ who share in each other's medical burdens. Since 1993
more than $2 Billion in medical expenses have been shared and
discounted by Medi-Share members.
 
With Medi-Share you and your family won't need to worry about the
mandate to purchase health insurance or pay costly penalties and

NEW MEXICO

CARETAKER COUPLE needed. After two wonderful years here, my home
and property caretakers must leave. I am looking to replace them
with a couple as committed as they are. This is a work-trade
arrangement. In exchange for caring for my home and other aspects
of the land, your home is rent-free. I work very hard, I go to
Santa Fe almost every day except Sunday and need support on the
ranch. Currently, the home of the caretaker is rustic, simple,
partially furnished. It was intended to be a garage type
structure and one day will be. It had a simple kitchen, a small
bathroom, and a loft bedroom upstairs. A concrete floor. It is
heated via wood stove. You would provide your own wood. It has a
washer/dryer and fridge. No dishwasher. The cottage is
approximately 900+ square feet. There is no fence around the
cottage. I am building a new home on my land, it is rammed earth.
It will take almost another year to complete. Once I move out of
the home I am living in, it will become the home of the
caretakers. It is a one bedroom, one bath, with a small atrium,
tiny living room, and an amazing kitchen, a delightful 2.5 acre
backyard fenced in, a wonderful patio, porch, and great views of
the pond. It has a large loft area that may be used as another
bedroom or studio space, office, etc. There is storage closet
upstairs. The house has lots of natural light and windows. It is
all solar, propane for hot water and heat in one room, which may
change. It also has a wood stove. It is a magical home. And yes,
there is a claw foot tub in the bedroom. The work trade includes
sprucing up my home Tuesday through Friday, I like it to feel
like a temple. I am not a messy person. You will need to refill
the bird feeders and bird baths Monday through Friday. I have two
dogs that you would care for during the day and chickens. The
dogs are German Shepherds. A love of dogs is of utmost
importance. Chickens are easy in the summer, harder in the
winter. If I need to travel, you would be on the job weekends
too. That doesn't happen often. On Monday, I have extra support,
someone that comes into clean. That is a day for you to take care
of odds and ends inside or out that need to be done. Maintaining
the sacred space of your own home and surrounding area is a
requirement while helping me with mine and my animals. The entire
property is 275 acres. My new home is about 4,000 sq. ft. It is
further away from the current homes, so more privacy afforded to
everyone however I will be using the house the caretakers will be
moving out of for an art studio or other fun pursuits. The
caretaking couple must have a reverence for place and honor the
property I have worked so hard to be on. It is remote and
private. It is technically a subdivision. You must be comfortable
with the isolation. It can get super windy out here. We have more
weather, rain and snow, than in Santa Fe. Your house does not
have a garage. We have pack rats out here. Keeping the hood open
on our cars at night has completely cured the problem of them
chewing wires. Only people who can pass a thorough background
check should apply. It is a two-person situation, a couple is
required. I would like people on the property most of time, not
leaving during the day and rushing home to get things done before
I get here. One person should be capable of maintaining things
like small plumbing leaks or other repairs, only serious,
long-term applicants need apply. Honesty is non-negotiable.
Quiet, respectful people are a must. This is a sanctuary. I
appreciate my privacy. Generally I will leave notes during the
week on the kitchen island to communicate anything. Most, but not
all, Sunday's, I will cook dinner and get together with you so we
can discuss anything we need to and get to know each other
better. I've covered a lot here so there is not a lot of back and
forth because I didn't provide enough information. Local
applicants are preferred. If you are interested, please send your
resume to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I will not respond to general
inquires unless I have some information about you. Excellent
references are required. I am in no rush, it is important the
find the right people. The current caretakers will help with the
process and training.

rent-free in exchange for acting as caretaker for the ranch. The
property is located just 20 miles outside of Show Low on 40+
acres. It has an abundance of mature Pinon trees, rock
outcroppings, and meadow/flat areas. The property offers privacy,
seclusion, and nature at its best! Lots of birds, deer, antelope,
and bear. It is a beautiful property, and shopping, dining, and
services are a short drive away. There is a world class golf
course (Crystal Creek) nearby. While we are in a semi-remote
rural area you will not be far from all that you need. Activities
to be developed on the property are an organic garden,
beekeeping/honey production, therapeutic riding, and an art
program. If you enjoy living in a semi-remote area, off the grid
and seek a sustainable lifestyle - we'd love to hear from you.
Please read carefully, and make sure you are prepared to live off
the grid. We will only respond to potential candidates whom we
feel will be a match to become part of our family and ranch team.
Your RV, 5th Wheel, or travel trailer must be in good condition
and you must supply your own propane, power, and water. If you
have horses you will be able to fence off (three acres) for
living and pasture for the horses. Please email your resume and

all know things happen in life and all opportunities don't always
work out. If selected and you or I feel that it isn't a good
match we will part as friends and wish you well. We require that
if the owner is on the property you give us a 48-hour notice that
you will be withdrawing from acting as the caretaker. This will
give us time to sign you out of the property and verify that any
ranch property has been accounted for and the one acre lot is
left in the same or improved condition. Caretaker duties and
responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:
providing caretaking services and labor - this position could
develop into the caretaker receiving a stipend and or a salary.

ranch you will be called upon to learn beekeeping, organic
gardening or other skills that will allow you to caretake/manage
ranch operations. You should be a jack of all trades, able to
troubleshoot, build and or fabricate parts if necessary.
Initially, you will perform property checks and work closely with
the owner to ensure the security and safety of any property
assets. A plus to being the caretaker is you will enjoy the
bountiful harvest from the organic garden, orchard, honey, and
farm fresh eggs. There will be times when there is much to
accomplish and other times when there will be plenty of free time
to spend with your family, friends, recreational time or just
enjoy the peace and quiet here. This position is best suited for
a retired person with a retirement income or someone who has an
outside job that won't interfere with your caretaking
responsibilities. You must be a team player in deed and word,

ATV’s, a new Kubota tractor with loader attachment, box blade
and brush hog, a pickup for Ranch use. The equipment would
require regular maintenance and upkeep. There are seven alpaca
and a llama. The alpacas are sheared annually by a professional
shearer and their fiber processed. The Llama is sheared every
other year. The property consists of hayfields, a fenced horse
pasture with water, and native grass grazing. There are areas of
dense aspen. Most of the property is left wild to encourage
wildlife, as it is part of a wildlife migration corridor between
Glacier Park and the Sweet Grass Hills. The views are amazing.
All in all, it is a beautiful piece of property, with lots of
potential. I work remote on a rotating schedule and do not have
the time or skills to do the work needed. In addition to property
repair/maintenance, the caretaker would be responsible for
managing the vacation rentals which would include handling all
reservations and correspondence, greeting and working with guests
to ensure a pleasant stay, and providing housekeeping. A two
night minimum is required, and most guests stay three to four
nights, so it isn’t a nightly turnover like a motel. You can
check the website at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX for details on the
vacation rentals, and reviews from previous guests. I am looking
for a couple who is self-sufficient in living/working in a remote
situation and has a positive attitude. Please be aware there are
long hours in the summer months. Property skills needed are basic
ranch skills including equipment operation and maintenance,
building maintenance and repair, barb-wire fencing and land
management including noxious weed management, animal care, and
ability to relate to ranch guests. Skills needed to manage the
vacation rentals include guest services/hospitality experience,
strong administrative skills and background, strong
organizational skills, good verbal and written communication
skills and computer skills. Flowers and gardening skills, and
social media skills are a big plus. A valid driver’s license is
required, and candidates must be drug free and pass a background
check. A passport is needed if planning to go into Canada. All
homes are smoke-free, and pets are acceptable if not disruptive
to the ranch guests. A two bedroom house would be provided and a
pasture if you have a horse or two. The house is all electric and
I pay up to $120/month for the electrical bill. A new well system
was installed (it is good water), and I pay for garbage hauling.
Satellite TV is available but not provided. The caretaker
residence is a comfortable frame house, all appliances including
a washer/dryer, hardwood floors, and full basement for storing
supplies, great views, approximately 1,040 sq. ft. each level.
There is a wood stove installed to keep the heat bill down in the
winter. I provide a cell phone and laptop with internet for ranch
business use and recordkeeping. I would like to get feeder steers
for beef and would provide the caretaker one-quarter beef/year,
and add chickens for fresh eggs. The property could be as
self-sufficient as a person would want. The position is available
September 1, 2018. If you are interested, please forward a
resume, references and a recent photo to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  No
phone calls please. Please include what salary/compensation you
would expect. Equal Opportunity Employer.

CARETAKER(S) NEEDED NOW for a developing orphan bear rehab center
in Weitchpec, CA in Klamath River Country. This remote living
opportunity can be for a person, persons, or a couple who enjoy
solitude, self-sufficiency, permaculture, alternative building,
and wildlife. Twenty acres, mostly wooded, very diverse trees
that need thinning, a large terraced garden area with pond that
needs restoring, old cabin and barn that need fixing, repair, and
remodeling. If you have carpentry skills and want to help with
these projects, that would be nice, or bring your own tiny house,
or build one using our trees. This is a permanent homesteading
type opportunity for the right persons/people who understand the
pleasures and challenges of living among bears, lions, and all
wildlife in general. Invasive blackberry is our nemesis. If you
want to be a shepherd, we'll provide the sheep along with a
guardian dog, donkey, and/or llama. If you like woodworking we'll
help you set up shop. If you want to work pottery we'll build you
a kiln. If you want to grow organic market produce or cut
flowers, we'll help you with that too. If you'd rather go fishing
every day, then just go do that. Our eventual goal is to use part
of this site to expand our current coastal wildlife care center
for the purpose of taking on orphan bears. Simply your presence
would be a benefit. We have good and abundant spring water, and
are completely off-the-grid (bring your own batteries, solar
stuff, etc.). Internet access is possible with the right
antennae. A 4-wheel-drive vehicle is a necessity. 215 personal
cultivation is okay. Must love bears. This is an unpaid position
good for retired types, minimalists, remote homesteading
enthusiasts, intentional small community individuals, artists,
and hermits. There is probably a place on the mountain for you,
if you really love the woods and the animals that already live
here. This is an unpaid living opportunity so a fixed income or
means to generate enough cash for your own needs beyond anything
the mountain does not provide is as necessary as your working
4-wheel-drive vehicle, which should probably carry a chainsaw at
all times, and a fire extinguisher. Interested persons should
please call or text XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

COSTA RICA

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is looking for a single or couple
caretaker(s) starting June 17, 2018. The position includes onsite
housing (in a very cool container home!) with internet and
utilities provided. We are looking for someone to care for our
home and continue growing our gardens and food forest. We
practice permaculture in a tropical setting blends agriculture
with the surrounding native and erosion control plants. The
position would start with a one month trial period, and then go
through December 2018 (and beyond if interested). The farm is
located about two kilometers from town, so a car isn’t
necessary, but it does help to get to the farmers market, beach,
etc. This is a family-owned 17 hectares (40 acres) farming
project started 10 years ago with a vision to create a place for
people to discover the beauty of Costa Rica in a safe,
sustainable and familiar way. If you are interested in learning
and participating in permaculture design and implementation,
green building, shipping container construction, gardening and
reforestation, water systems, alternative energy, and living in
balance with nature, you have found a good fit with PermaVida. We
often host two to three volunteers to help with maintaining
garden spaces, planting and updating our internal trail system,
recycled material projects, and other various farm duties. This
could be part of the caretaker position if we find the right
person(s). Please contact us for more details by emailing

CALIFORNIA

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. I have a
two bedroom/one bathroom mobile home trailer available (the
trailer appliances run on propane) in exchange for help around
the ranch and building tiny houses on trailers. Also possible is
a live-in situation in my house for the right person. I have been
inundated with replies so when responding please describe what
abilities you have and work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot but will
consider anybody who brings a lot to the table so to speak. There
is room for horses, over three acres, already fenced for the
caretaker. There is also a very rustic cabin and plenty of
trailer space available. Looking for somebody with experience
with horses or people with carpentry/handyman skills and business
management. A MacGyver type of person would be a plus. Must be a
self-starter and it would be great if you have a lot of your own
tools. A great deal of common sense is essential for living on a
ranch and I can't stress that enough. There are two trout streams
on the property and plenty of places to garden. Unfortunately
there is no 420 growing here. An apple orchard over one hundred
sixty years old is still bearing sixteen different varieties of
apples. There are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries
to be harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half
fallen down, as it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi remote,
located five miles to the closest neighbor, but only fifteen
minutes on good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores
and schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch
is in generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity! We get quite a bit of snow
in the winter so a 4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible
job opportunities with the right people but nothing going on at
the present moment. I need motivated people who want to help get
the business going again and expand to build tiny houses on
trailers. I have enough lumber cut and dried to build 10. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. Would like to find somebody interested in helping expand
my lumber, cabinets and furniture sales. Also interested in
turning the ranch into an equestrian campground and give guided
horseback riding on the property and the adjacent thousands of
acres of US forest land. I do have other caretakers so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

apples. There are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries
to be harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half
fallen down, as it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi remote,
located five miles to the closest neighbor, but only fifteen
minutes on good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores
and schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch
is in generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity! We get quite a bit of snow
in the winter so a 4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible
job opportunities with the right people but nothing going on at
the present moment. I need motivated people who want to help get
the business going again and expand to build tiny houses on
trailers. I have enough lumber cut and dried to build 10. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. Would like to find somebody interested in helping expand
my lumber, cabinets and furniture sales. Also interested in
turning the ranch into an equestrian campground and give guided
horseback riding on the property and the adjacent thousands of
acres of US forest land. I do have other caretakers so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

	HEALTHCARE UPDATE
 
Over the decades many of our advertisers and subscribers, both
property owners and caretakers/housesitters, have discussed their
healthcare situation and possible insurance options/alternatives
with us. We recently dropped our current medical insurance when
the premiums jumped to $2,000 per month with a $12,000 annual
deductible. We switched to a $282 per month healthcare program
called Medi-Share.
 
I wanted to send you some information about Medi-Share as I
thought you might be interested in their affordable healthcare.
Like us, you and your family could join their community of
250,000+ who share in each other's medical burdens. Since 1993
more than $2 Billion in medical expenses have been shared and
discounted by Medi-Share members.
 
With Medi-Share you and your family won't need to worry about the
mandate to purchase health insurance or pay costly penalties and
fees, members are exempt through a special provision in the
Affordable Care Act.

Development Specialist at Christian Care Ministry at 800-772-5623
extension 2224.
 
I hope this helps!
 
Take care,
