LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 

Dear Mr. Dunn, I would like to take time to thank you and your
magazine for helping me live a dream of mine for many years. I am
not a great writer so I apologize ahead of time, please don't
hold that against me, but I think you will get the jist of it. I
found your magazine approximately eight years ago and it has led
me on adventures of a lifetime. First to the Darwin Ranch owned
then by Loring and Melody Woodman. What wonderful people and all
the folks I met during my time as a caretaker there. They had me
as the late winter/early spring caretaker of the isolated Darwin
Ranch deep inside the Gros Ventres wilderness in Wyoming. What an
absolute incredible experience. I learned about off grid living.
They let me stay on through June almost July of that year. We
still stay in contact periodically. After that, on my own, I
started a series of adventures in the Northwest and Southwest
discovering our beautiful country and the people who live here. I
saw and experienced things most people only read about and see on
National Geographic shows. Sunrises on Mountain tops, hiking by
the light of a full moon at midnight through wild and isolated
valleys, sleeping under the stars in the desert - I could go on
and on. What a treat for one little guy from Connecticut. Now
fast forward to today. Once again I am on an adventure because of
your magazine. I am the caretaker in Bisgouet, France at Chateau
Bosgouet. I help with the grounds (50 acre historic estate) and
the permaculture farming. I never thought I would get to Europe.
They let me use their place as my base of exploration to places
like Rome, Madrid, Lisbon, etc. Well you've probably had enough
of my bad writing and sentence structure but from the bottom of
my heart: thank you. Without you and your magazine I would have
never been able to experience any of these things. I will always
be grateful. Thank you, Pat C., Bisgouet, France

Thanks for writing Pat. We're glad to hear of your success.
Let us know if we can do a future Caretaker Profile story about
you and your adventures using the Gazette.

Dear Gary: Just a thought - I have talked with other subscribers
and some of us have faced the same frustrating dilemma. We send
resumes, information, and even a SASE to some potential employers
and never hear a word. No notice that our information was
received, no word that the caretaking position has been filled or
they're simply not interested in us, etc. Is there some way your
publication can encourage an article for persons placing ads
advocating some sort of response to applicants? I know this is
hard. It just seems there is no courtesy anymore. They won't even
return a SASE saying they're not interested! Just something to
think about. Thanks, K.C. Lake Geneva, WI

Keith, I always ask the advertisers to have the common
courtesy to reply to all applicants, even after they fill their
position. We've printed notices about it in the Gazette and will
continue to request that all advertisers kindly respond to all
applicants, and hope they comply! Many of our advertisers do
respond to applicants, even if it's just a postcard or an email
message indicating that they have filled their position.

Dear Gary, Ed and I are so pleased that we rejoined your site
after so many years. We are excited to have completed an
agreement for the Pennsylvania caretaker position in Stroudsburg,
PA. The owners and the property are both awesome. We will start
in mid-June. We are so glad you have maintained such a successful
site for so many years. Best regards, Dolores and Ed O., Lake
City, FL

Dear Dolores and Ed, thanks for writing. We wish you the best
there in your new position!

GERMANY

VOLUNTEERS needed in Hoisdorf, in the district of Stormarn, in
Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Nature, stillness and meditation -
work and deepen your spirituality at our meditation center
outside Hamburg. Our house is focused on providing an environment
to meditate, go inwards and reconnect with nature. It is a place
of stillness and peace, and perfectly suited for experienced
meditators and other experienced spiritual practitioners who
might also like to enjoy the natural surroundings. In the house,
we are two permanent residents and offer a couple of private
guestrooms. We are intense meditators and like to meditate for
three to four hours, daily (morning and evening meditations). We
expect from all volunteers coming to the house to focus on
intensifying their inner connection - whatever that means for
you: meditation, prayer, contemplation, deep bodywork, relaxation
techniques, long walks in nature, dream work, certain kinds of
reading ... This is a good place to go on retreat and we expect
volunteers to be experienced in this regard. You might be bored
quickly if you do not have your own things that you want to work
or focus on. We do not offer schooling or teaching. But the house
provides support for your own efforts in a multitude of ways.
Beginners in the spiritual quest or people unfamiliar with
turning inwards will find other places more suitable for them. We
are a small quiet place. We ask volunteers to leave after a few
days if they are not making use of the purpose of the house
(going inwards in some personal way, as described above).
Benefits: a peaceful garden with pond, large meditation room,
library, and a nature sanctuary for water birds is adjacent to
the property, with a great view! Expected help hours: 25
hours/week for free accommodation and organic vegetarian food.
Or: 15 hours/week for free accommodation only. In this case:
Please bring your own food or share in the costs. Work hours
start daily at 9.30 a.m. We are flexible to arrange the hours so
that you can have days off for sightseeing and recreation. But we
ask you to arrange your free days with us, as we do have days
when we depend on helpers' work. (Just for completeness: We
cannot provide health or accident insurance for any kind of
guests - that includes work and travel helpers). Accommodation in
double-/triple-bed room (mixed gender), non-smoking inside, and
no pets, please. Two cats also live in the house. But the guest
rooms are kept free of all animals. Currently, we are mainly
looking for one or two long-term helpers (six weeks or longer).
We consider a two-week trial period best for both sides. We plan
ahead for two months in advance, only. Please, in general, do not
contact us earlier than two months prior to your proposed arrival
date. Once we agree on you staying long-term you will receive a
single room. Short-term stays are also possible if you prefer
this. You would be of special help if you have expertise and
skills in one of the following: housekeeping, repair jobs,
maintenance or certain crafts - especially carpentry, and
gardening (permaculture know-how especially appreciated). Please

PROPERTY CARETAKER PROFILE

From Corporate Life to the Life of Caretaking
Dates of Birth: Rome: 09/68, Rebecca: 10/72
Address: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Interests: creating art, cooking fine cuisine, movies, gardening,
horseback riding, K-9 dog training.
Quote: If all you ever do is all you've ever done, then all
you'll ever get is all you've ever got.

	Rebecca and Rome Flores

	When they first met in Las Vegas, both Rome and Rebecca were
aggressively climbing the corporate ladder.  Rome recalls, At
that time, each of us was no stranger to hard work. Rebecca and
her three siblings were raised by a single mother and Rome, at
the age of sixteen, applied for emancipation and began to live
independently. Each acquired a strong work ethic at a young age.
Separately they both aspired to fulfill their desire for a corner
office on the upper floor of some faceless high rise office
building. Neither of them was expecting to fall in love.
	Rome's story starts out in a small, rural Indiana county
surrounded by dairy farms, corn fields and a variety of four- and
two-legged animals. Rome worked alongside his father, yet he
yearned for the big city and the big job. He earned a scholarship
to Columbus College for Art and Design. In addition to his skills
in art and design and in the culinary arts, Rome mastered the
essentials of construction under the tutelage of a master. Eager
to join the ranks of corporate America, Rome left for the booming
city of Las Vegas. Rebecca's story begins in sunny California
where she spent most of her time on her Uncle Jack's horse ranch.
She easily developed a love of all animals. After a move to Las
Vegas Rebecca initially pursued the field of veterinary medicine,
but the call of the white collar corporate lifestyle led her to
switch careers. Rebecca soon found herself in the position of
lead paralegal for one of Nevada's largest law firms.
	Rome recalls, Rebecca and I met at an orientation for a large
California corporation that was expanding into the thriving
markets of Las Vegas. We both had desires to reach the top of our
fields, neither of us had any interest in slowing down, neither
of us had any interest in falling in love.  Fall in love they
did. From the very first meeting it was love and, according to
the couple, A match made in the heavens. Rebecca will tell you, I
knew from that day I was going to marry Rome. Rome says, The
wedding, on the Las Vegas Strip was corporate sponsored. We said
our vows underwater, in a 1,000 gallon fish tank, wearing wet
suits. In true corporate fashion the event crossed with a
restaurant opening promotion and made newspapers in over 30
cities from coast to coast.
During the early years of their marriage both Rome and Rebecca
pursued their careers and made great strides in the corporate
world. Rebecca was the top paralegal of her law firm. Rome was an
upcoming star and the youngest project manager on the Las Vegas
Strip. They even had time to start an international business
importing building materials.  Earning great money but working
long hours and weekends, the couple hardly saw each other. In
2008 the housing bubble burst in Las Vegas. Rome and Rebecca had
to make a tough decision: Should we stay or should we go? They
decided to pull up stakes and move to the beaches of the East
Coast. One day Rebecca came across an article in The New York
Times about caretaking and The Caretaker Gazette. Rome was
dubious, but Rebecca convinced her husband to look into it. They
subscribed to The Caretaker Gazette and responded to a few ads:
they received three job offers. Montana, Idaho, and Georgia were
calling but the couple still had some reservations. With halting
curiosity they decided to drive out to the country to meet the
owners of a 60+ acre horse ranch.
	Halfway through their first meeting with the owners, Rome and
Rebecca knew they would be happy there. Although they told the
owners that they would have to discuss the opportunity between
themselves, they knew before they got back home that was what
they wanted to do and where they wanted to be. Rome could easily
manage the daily care of horses and light maintenance of the
property; a commitment of 20 hours a week. In return, the couple
would live in a two bedroom, two bathroom cottage and earn a
small stipend.
	Caretaking on the ranch is a seven-day-a-week commitment. In
Rome's and Rebecca's situation they have a fairly informal
arrangement with the property owners. Rome routinely starts his
days early, just before the horses feeding time. After a golf
cart ride with the dogs to the pond to feed the ducks, Rome is
off to do his chores. Prioritizing the needs of the ranch and
being a self-starter are important attributes. The work week
normally includes light maintenance and simple tasks. Mending
fences, clearing the riding trails, grooming and other horse
care, cutting the grass around the main house, and gardening are
standard. Rebecca helps out twice a week at the main house with
the vacuuming, dusting, light cleaning, and will occasionally
assist the owners with computers and letter writing.
	According to Rome, Rebecca and I both will tell you that
caretaking is a simple and stress-free life that comes with many
valuable benefits. Our recommendation to anyone who is interested
in caretaking as a career is to understand there are many
different types of positions available. Take the time to
familiarize yourself with the wide variety. Get to know the
potential employers and ask questions to make sure you understand
what will be expected of you. Eight years after abandoning
corporate America, Rome and Rebecca have forgotten any reason to
strive to climb the corporate ladder.  The couple is still in
love and loves the caretaking lifestyle. Although other
opportunities still exist, they find themselves quite content to
be in the life of caretaking. The only complaint you will hear
from Rome is, Rebecca, Why didn't you make me do this years ago?

AN ALTERNATIVE TO COSTLY MEDICAL 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 $282 per month healthcare program
called Medi-Share.
I wanted to share some information with you 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, since members are exempt through a special provision in the
Affordable Care Act.
If you would like to learn more, please go to
http://bit.ly/2gvMroU or please call Myles Lilley who is a Member
Development Specialist at Christian Care Ministry at 800-772-5623
extension 2224.
I hope this helps!

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
www.lastdkcowboy.wordpress.com
