LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
 
This letter to the Editor is from a property owner who had
advertised for a caretaker in the Gazette. She wanted to share
her point of view about hiring caretakers, so we thought this
would be helpful to our readership:

Why does a property owner want a caretaker? Here are two good
reasons: 1. The owner wants to keep his/her house running and
looking good. There may be employees, pets and plants to give
daily attention. He or she is not necessarily looking for skilled
labor, just a trouble-shooter. 2. There is a need to have someone
on the property to discourage crime. Empty houses invite
break-ins, so why don't property owners just rent out their
houses? Renters can be destructive and short-term. They don't
care about maintaining property or assuming responsibility. They
come and go at will. A caretaker, on the other hand, is getting a
place to call his own in exchange for his time and effort. A
common problem is that the caretaker comes to think and act like
a renter. Is housesitting right for you? Begin by being honest.
Are you healthy in body and spirit? Changing venues is not a cure
for troubles. Can you resist the temptation of having friends and
relatives drop in? Only you have the right to be there, while
watching over someone else's property. Will you find solutions to
problems? Can you stop mildew from eating an outside deck? Do you
know what to do if bees enter the house walls? What about a
septic tank that overflows? Or an employee that steals? These
events actually happened at my house. If a homeowner asks if you
can handle such things, the answer he hopes to hear is, I may not
know what to do now, but I will find out and deal with it. Is it
old fashion to mention morals? Caretakers live in someone's home,
and should be respectful of that. Yet a common complaint is that
too often the caretaker sees this as an opportunity to run wild,
and end up breaking all the rules. Caretakers must have the
ability to maintain, business-like relationships with the locals
and employees. It is usually better while on the job to be a
"hard Prickly" than a "soft cuddly".  Housesitter. Caretaker. The
terms say it all and are so definitive. Reread them slowly
because they explain the job. It can be a win-win for both the
caretaker and the homeowner. Since a housesitter needs to be on
the premises most of the time, he or she has the opportunity to
write, paint, etc. They may find themselves in a lovely property
with a great view. They just have to keep things clean and in
order for the homeowner. That is the exchange. And yet this
concept is so hard for some to grasp. I received several emails
from people wanting to sit my house and asking if I could find
them a job while they were there. My reply? The housesitting
position is the job. To all of you that dream of un-fettering
yourself I say, just do it! You can inherit the Earth later. Make
sure you are truly able to bend, to give, and to keep a sense of
humor. Marilyn C. Roatan Island, Honduras

Marilyn, thanks for writing and giving advice from a property
owner's perspective. I'm not sure if all of our readers will
agree with your characterization of renters, but you do provide
some good points. I'm also glad that, via your caretaker-wanted
ad in the Gazette, you were able to find one of our subscribers
to caretake your home for you.

ICELAND

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX VOLUNTEERS needed from August 25 to
September 8, 2018. The hosts are a group of locals developing the
Icelandic highlands with alternative tourism services, including
running a series of huts in this isolated area in the highlands
and offering services to visitors and hikers. The Icelandic
highlands, or the interior, are a true pearl to nature lovers and
outdoor people. It is accessible on 4WD cars and most routes
involve crossing rivers where there are not any bridges. If you
really want to get away from it all, the interior of Iceland is
like nothing you have ever experienced. The mountainous center of
the island, with its rocky deserts, craggy mountain peaks, ice
caps, volcanoes, hidden valleys and hot springs, is an awesome
and untouched wilderness. The interior was almost totally
inaccessible until recently. In this camp XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

including repairing of walking paths and making steps in steep
parts of the trails, landscaping around the huts in the area.
Volunteers will also help with the revegetation in some areas
around, clearing litter on the walking paths, and general
preparations within the area. As the landscape is raw, the work
is physically very demanding but also rewarding. Volunteers
should have a motivation for working outdoors and to experience
one of the most isolated areas in Iceland. The weather in Iceland
is unpredictable, so be prepared for all kinds of weather and be
sure to bring warm winter clothing since most of the work will
take place outdoors and it can get very cold in the highlands.
Volunteers will be hosted in a local mountain hut; sleeping in
shared rooms on mattresses on the floor; please bring your own
sleeping bag. The facilities are very basic and volunteers are
expected to show consideration for their companions. Volunteers
will be staying close to the glacier Hofsjokull and near to the

PROPERTY CARETAKER PROFILE

John Harding - long-term Pacific Northwest caretaker!
Address: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Interests: Bible Study, hobby breeding of Labradoodles,
photography, inventing, creative writing.
Quote: Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your
heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you. (I
Samuel 12:24)

        John Harding and his wife

	Back in the late 90's I was living what most would have
considered The American Dream. I worked as a professional Civil
Engineering Design Specialist with the State Department of
Transportation. My monthly income, health, dental and vision
benefits, as well as future retirement opportunities and my
location of employment in relation to where I lived was
undoubtedly a very desirable arrangement. The only thing was, the
life I had carved out was at a point of controlling me - I was no
longer in control of it. I had come to a place of feeling like a
prisoner of my own success. How could I change what I had come to
rely on so heavily without experiencing a total crash and burn
episode in my life?
	One day at work while listening to the local radio station, Gary
Dunn from The Caretaker Gazette comes on the air as a guest
speaker to discuss the plethora of opportunities for property
caretaking as being a potential career path. I was drawn to his
topic like a moth to a flame! Fortunately the outcome of that
interest was nowhere near the same for me as a flame would have
been for a poor moth!
	I decided to become a subscriber to The Caretaker Gazette in
spite of my initial thought of: If it sounds too good to be true
This coming July of 2018 will be the 19th year that I have
happily served as the resident property caretaker on one of the
most beautiful pieces of off-grid, Pacific Northwest, wilderness
properties I could have ever imagined living upon!
	Originally, I accepted the position with a handshake agreement
with the property owner that if after one full year, he decided
he liked me and wanted me to stay, and I decided I liked it here
and wanted to stay, I would begin paying him a small monthly
amount of rent for the modest living quarters that were provided.
One year passed and a meeting was held. I did like it and I
wanted to stay. He not only liked me as well, but decided I was
worth being paid a small monthly stipend instead of being charged
rent! 
	I served him as his resident property caretaker for 12 years,
helping him with various projects along the way but mostly
assisting him in taking care of his elderly father whom I had
come to love and call Grampa. Being as independent as he was,
Grampa was actually quite easy to take care of - in fact, I found
myself sometimes feeling like I was the one being taken care of.
He truly treated me like a grandson.
	After Grampa passed, the property owner attempted to gift me
with a couple of acres of his 40 which he no longer felt a need
to keep. The county however, would not allow the 40 acre
wilderness property to be divided. So, to honor my 12 years of
service to him and his father, he did the next best thing for me.
He contacted the only other private property owner that owned
property adjacent to his and offered to sell his 40 acres to them
with the added bonus of acquiring a reliable, honest,
trustworthy, dependable resident property caretaker.
	I was soon contacted by that other property owner and told that
if I'd stay as their resident property caretaker I could continue
living on the 40 acre property and have full access to all the
structures upon the property as if they were my own! My duties
would simply remain as they were enjoy living there as if I owned
the place! Only difference was, now I had less caretaking duties
and lots more private property (completely surrounded by BLM and
Forest Service land) to enjoy!
The previous owner's fully furnished, and isolated cabin has been
used a couple of times as a wonderful Honeymoon Resort, as well
as a nice guest cabin for visiting friends and family.
	The property is wonderfully located several miles from any
neighbors or paved roads providing a peaceful tranquility most
can only dream about. Hearing the soothing sounds of running
water from the year round stream passing only yards away from the
main house is beyond adequate description. Millions of dollars
have been paid by some to try and replicate what I've enjoyed as
being all natural for the past 18+ years! As the resident
property caretaker, I pay no rent, no mortgage and no property
taxes! Amazing how stress free that is!
	Living only 40 minutes away from the beautiful Giant Redwoods of
Northern California, and only an hour away from the scenic
Pacific Ocean makes this place Too good to be true...but it
isn't, it is true!
A small piece of advice to potential property caretakers: Be
truthful, consistent, reliable, respectable and teachable. Those
qualities can open many doors of opportunity!
	Thank you Caretaker Gazette and Gary Dunn!

1999

couple to live and work at our beautiful, remote ranch for the
summer. The XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is a holistically managed cattle
operation, though these two positions fall under our guest

rent as vacation rentals. We care about our land and animals
deeply and this is exhibited through our ranching style, our
conservation partnerships, and even down to the green cleaning
products we use in our guest homes. We are looking for people who
believe in, and can support, this greater vision. The grounds
keeper will be responsible for mowing and yard work, hot tub
care, fence work, general ranch maintenance and repairs to

be ideal for a couple. Housing is provided (though you may bring
an RV) as well as vehicles for ranch work. We are in a very

streams, plenty of hiking opportunities and scenic drives as well
a world-class birding at the Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife

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
