September 17. Volunteers will be working on a project in the
beautiful forest of Hallormsstaoaskogur in the far East of
Iceland, doing nature and environmental oriented tasks.
Hallormsstaoaskogur is the largest wooded area of the country
that spreads over 30 hectares of land. The reforestation of the
forest has been going on since a law for the protection was
passed in 1899. The oldest part of the woodland is accessible
with good hiking trails and explanation signs. The area offers a
great variety of walking paths, such as to the deepest valley of
the country and up to Sandfell where the view is quite
magnificent. Small streams run through the land where children
and adults can cool down on warm summer days. The East Fjords is
a region of a special landscape, dominated by long, narrow fjords
and steep mountains and the wild reindeers of Iceland are found
here, the herd counts between three and four thousand animals.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX has been cooperating with the Icelandic
forest service and our groups of volunteers have been helping out
for a few years with very good results for the participants, the
projects and the Icelandic nature conservation and reforestation
efforts. The main tasks will be to maintain hiking paths, build
stairs, make and put up signs. Volunteers will also put up
benches and tables in the forest. Other tasks will be to trim
branches and beautify groves that are located near hiking paths.
Well maintained paths enable people to visit these amazing areas
without damaging the area and this important work also helps to
improve safety for visitors. Volunteers should be prepared for
all kinds of weather. The work is physically demanding and
volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors. The working
plan will be flexible and it will depend on the needs of our
local host, the advance of the diverse projects in the area
surrounding the forest and of course on the weather conditions.
Last but not least, volunteers can explore the surroundings of
the location and enjoy free time activities arranged in
cooperation with the local host. Volunteers will sleep in beds in
a house belonging to the Icelandic forest service. The house is
fully equipped. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers
will receive food supplies and be in charge of their own cooking
and cleaning activities. To learn more, please visit

Interests: Travel, pets, cooking and painting, reading and
learning French
Quote: "Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what
do are in harmony." Mahatma Gandhi

Kathleen Deyo

	Artists are born that way. I came in as an intuitive child with
a real interest in spirituality and visual arts. My Dad came from
a musical family and so art and music were a big part of my
childhood. Church was the heart of our home and my Dad often sang
solos in the choir. Born in Chicago, by the time I married, I had
visited 39 states. Once our children were able to travel we
cruised on the QE2 to England and back to New York City. Another
time we went to Spain. All told, I've visited six foreign
countries and travelled to France five times because my youngest
daughter and her husband and son live in Paris. 
	Travel is my passion. Painting is my world. Art is my vehicle. I
painted murals for "House Beautiful" and worked for movie stars
while raising a family. I also do portraits and wedding
paintings. At one point, I managed a rooming house and
interviewed the guests, took care of their requests and collected
the rent for the absentee landlord. In turn, I got free rent and
lots of experience dealing with human nature and quirks of
	I have been a subscriber to The Caretaker Gazette for a long
time, and have run Situations Wanted ads there to find
housesitting positions. My ads typically included:
	Housesitter available now! I am experienced with great
references. Seeking a housesitting position where it's warm. I
love animals and seek free rent and utilities and a modest
stipend. Please email or call me and thank you.
	Most recently I have been the housesitter on a hundred acre
estate in western North Carolina. At one point, I managed a
rooming house and interviewed the guests, took care of their
requests and collected the rent for the absentee landlord. In
turn, I got free rent and lots of experience dealing with many
people from all over the world.
	This position is more peaceful and quiet. The property owner
owns the mountain where I live as well as 26 acres in town. The
owner is famous and highly private. I am not permitted to have
guests or to photograph the property. It is strictly forbidden.
The owner travels several months a year. I have my own house to
myself. It is one of twelve houses on the mountain property I
manage, which is densely wooded and studded with streams and
lyrically beautiful. I watch the owner's cat and three dogs. The
dogs are older now and require help getting on and off the couch
and in and out of the car. I make sure to bring them to their
appointments in town for nail clipping and grooming. The nearest
town is 52 miles round trip by car. I feed them and walk them and
keep them content and thriving. I also manage the workmen on the
property. The grounds require maintenance. We have storms here
and fallen branches block the driveways. This is a safety hazard.
The grass is cut several times a month and plants require
pruning, etc.
	I coordinate the schedules of the service providers. Many times
I drive twenty miles just to meet them so the new ones can follow
me and gain entrance to this multi-gated property. It is a bit
complicated and somewhat intimidating! I also take in the mail.
That is not as simple as it sounds. Gathering the mail means
stopping at two post office boxes and two roadside mail boxes and
sorting the mail by category. Any important mail needs to be
forwarded abroad immediately. The owner and I text each other
every Sunday. In turn, I live rent-free and pay nothing for
	Living rent-free affords me the much needed time to work on
illustrating three card decks. It is an enormous task which I
thoroughly enjoy. Art requires peace and solitude. I have a
fairly isolated existence these days and find my work is
productive and the quality is high. I do not have distractions. I
do not have to worry about paying next month's rent. I do not
have to deal with personalities and pressures. I worked as a
Special Ed Teacher for nine years in New York City and at the end
of the day my energy was spent and I was fairly unproductive as a
freelance artist. The rent was several thousand a month and my
salary was high but it was a pressure filled existence. I am much
more relaxed now and enjoy excellent health and my dreams are
	So the life of a caretaker is similar to the life of an Artist
in Residence and for this I am very grateful. I speak French
adequately and hope for a position in France and the closer to
Paris, the better. If that is not in the cards, LOL, then I am
willing to work as a housesitter or caretaker in North Carolina
again or even northern California or New York where I also have
friends and family. I just want to be able to continue painting.
My needs are few. I am outgoing and stay in touch with my friends
over the computer and phone. I also use FaceTime which I
thoroughly enjoy. I am deeply grateful for my excellent health
and sense of freedom. I am happy to know Gary Dunn and be part of
the growing global Caretaker.org community.

Arizona Cowboy has written true stories in four exciting and
interesting books all about half a century on horseback. 2005,
was the year the books closed on the Arizona, cattle and horse
ranch named the DK Ranch. After nearly fifty years there as a
cowhand, I had advanced as their chief honcho. During the start
of the year 2005, the handwriting on the wall began and the books
closed on this historic steer and horse ranch. I sadly, then,
became my pen-name, The Last DK Cowboy. Read stories of true
happenings during our daily work. Happily chasing steers over the
open range while aboard bronco horses we were trying to make into
usable cowponies. Join me by enjoying these true tales and later
in the other books describing a rewarding, exciting life among
wild cattle and wilder cowhands. Ridin' out in Arizona's
beautiful, natural scenic wonders. These true tales, although
unusual, are just as I recollect them. To all those who have ever
dreamed of being a cowboy, here's your chance to ride along with
me as your side-kick and saddle pard. You can view an
entertaining introduction with many colored pictures at
