two queen beds, with satellite TV, lounge room, kitchen, laundry

I HAVE A CARETAKER OPPORTUNITY for someone with forestry
experience. Live free in your RV in a pole barn with hook-ups and
some storage in exchange for some work on my ten beautiful acres
in the Sierra Nevada’s in Northern California. There are many
places to hike just outside the driveway, gold panning, and
fishing, ski resorts are nearby, or just enjoying nature. Primary
duties would be processing wood for a wood burning household, so
chainsaw skills are a must and being able to drop trees safely. I
have a wood-splitter. Other random things: take care of my dogs
and chickens if I want to go out of town, I have a large organic
garden, so help with that and if someone had knowledge and joy of
growing things that would be a huge plus. I'm imagining six to
eight hours per week. This is a perfect gig for a retiree or
veteran with some income of his own who wants to live quietly
away from it all. I would also advise having a 4-Wheel-Drive as
the road is not maintained by the county and we do get snow. Some
mechanical or carpentry skills would be a plus, it seems there's
always something that needs fixing. There is a small barn and
nice corral, so someone with one horse or a few goats would be
fine. A dog is negotiable. I grow as much of my own food as I
can, I make soap, and love living this country life but after a
bad injury I do need some help. My chain sawing days are over. A
single guy would be perfect, (with no romantic notions) no heavy
drinkers or drug users and due to fire danger, no cigarette
smokers. I had a guy living here as caretaker for about five
years, and it was a great deal for both of us. He had to leave
due to some family issues, but we are still friends and keep in
touch. So I have references that I am reasonable and not a crazy
person, and I expect you to have references as well. I'm looking
forward to hearing from you. I would prefer a one year
commitment, but if it worked out well could be ongoing. I want a
win/win situation. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

ON-SITE CARETAKERS NEEDED for the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, in
Batchelor, Northern Territory. We are looking for a couple who
have their own accommodation (i.e. caravan/motor home), and who
would be interested in volunteering as “On-Site Caretakers”
at the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX this year from April 1st to the end
of September/October, depending on the weather. This is not a
paid position. Your van site, power and water are free for you on
the grounds of XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. There is also a bathroom,
fridge and small washing machine available. Batchelor is at the
gateway to the beautiful “Litchfield National Park” and is a
very historic little town of approximately 400 people, 50/50
Aboriginal and non-aboriginal. Batchelor is only 100 kms from
Darwin. There is a wonderful community spirit in the town and
always lots of fun activities going on. Lawn bowls, a swimming
pool, general store, beautiful Batchelor Oval with cricket pitch,
many parks, monthly markets, monthly Quiz Nights, Op-shop,
Anglican and Seventh Day Adventist Churches, Butterfly Farm and
Rum Jungle Tavern with karaoke weekly are some of the activities
you could become involved in during your stay at the Museum. The
more you give, the more you receive in Batchelor. You won’t
want to leave! We are interested in a neat and friendly couple
who are active and enjoy meeting and talking with people, most of
whom are travelers such as you. There is a small shop/cafe in the
entry building, selling Museum souvenirs, gift lines from local
artists, ice creams, drinks etc. The cafe is run by an
independent person but there may be some hours of paid work
available during the busy times. The main requirements are
keeping the three buildings of the museum clean, opening and
closing, and greeting visitors each day. Also, maintaining the
museum grounds and driveways. Details of these activities will be
forwarded upon application, with a run-sheet of a typical day.
This is an easy and rewarding position for two people to share
the day’s activities. The Museum is open seven days a week
during the season and on request thereafter. Open hours are from
10am to 4pm. You would be required to be here five days per week,
then two days off. This is flexible to suit different
requirements. We are all volunteers, and as such, try to be
flexible. We have a small yet dedicated group of Committee
members and friends of the Museum who look after it on a regular
basis to allow our valued caretakers to enjoy their time off. A
keen interest in Australian history, in particular WWII would be
great but not necessary. This is an opportunity to learn more
about the Top End and the front line of our Australian WWII
history; also the Rum Jungle Uranium Mine and the township of
Batchelor in the 1950’s, 1960’s, and 1970’s. The
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is fascinating and, whilst it has only been
open since 2012, has been given great reviews and is on the “to
do” list for the Northern Territory. It is constantly evolving,
with new exhibits and information being added on a regular basis.
If you are interested in keeping the history alive and would like
more information, please phone XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
