LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Hi Gary, I want to thank you for always answering my emails so
quickly! As a long time subscriber I have always been so
impressed with the variety of caretaker positions you've had over
the years and last year was the first time I actually decided to
apply. Thanks to you and your great publication I am going to be
spending this spring housesitting and property caretaking my way
across the country! What a great way to see this great country!
Thank you to you and your staff! Lisa M., Burlington, VT
 
Hi Lisa, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with
the Gazette with us. I appreciate your kind words and wish you
the best of experiences as you embark on your cross-country
adventure. Please keep in touch and feel free to email or call
any time if you have a question.
 
Hi Gary, We just wanted to give you a big THANK YOU!  We received
at least a dozen responses to our help-wanted ad in the Gazette.
After reading through responses from so many very experienced
people we now think we have found someone who will be just right
for our property. We were both feeling a bit stressed out when we
placed our ad because we had been through a run of people who
were not the right fit. But immediately we began hearing from
such great people responding to our Gazette ad. THANK YOU so very
much for your great service! Sincerely, John B. Mendocino, CA  
 
John, thanks for sharing your success story with us. We are glad
to hear that, through your Gazette ad, you were finally able to
find a qualified caretaker who is a good match for your property.
Please spread the good word about the Gazette to other property
owners who can use it.

Dear Gary and Gazette staff, what a great service you and your
staff are providing. It seems there is something for everyone. I
had to admit that I hadn't heard of your publication until I
received it as a gift. 33 years in business, you must be good,
given the publications that have come and gone during those
years. Please accept my ads - one for a caretaker and petsitter
for my home and one for the other side, for me, looking for a
position in France and Italy for the summer. Thank you to all of
you and I wish you 33 more years of success! Eleanor M.,
Minneapolis, MN
 
Hi Eleanor, thank you for your nice message. Most of our
subscribers discovered us via word-of-mouth and, many of them,
through gift subscriptions. Thank you for placing your ads with
us. I'm sure you'll be able to find a qualified
caretaker/petsitter for your own home and positions in Europe for
the summer. We have a number of property owners who subscribe to
the Gazette in order to find great people like you for their
properties. Wishing you all the best!
 
Congratulations Gary! Just wanted to congratulate you and
everyone at the Gazette on celebrating 33 years of publication.
Thanks for continuing to provide such great personal service to
all of us. Here's to many more years. Please sign me up for
another two years as I continue my lifestyle of adventure and
travel. Cheers, Ken L., North Hollywood, CA
 
Thank you Ken! I appreciate your taking the time to write to us
and thank you for renewing your subscription to the Gazette. I
hope you continue to enjoy the lifestyle of adventure and travel
and thanks for making the Gazette part of it!

WORK EXCHANGE opportunity available in northern California. This

the early stages of a Permaculture installation and would love
some steady hands to help keep things rolling! Over the last two
years we have been hand digging passive water harvesting
earthworks (swales and ponds) and planting them with diverse food
forests at three locations here on the coast. The response from
the local wildlife has already been radical! We are also in the
process of gathering and breeding hardy, locally adapted plants
and creatures for casual gardeners, homesteaders and backyard
farmers alike (self-seeding annuals, perennial vegetables,
medicinal herbs, fruit trees and bushes, bantam chickens,
Icelandic sheep, and honeybees!). We are on the lookout for
someone who would like to learn and partake in Permaculture
installations here on the Mendocino coast. Short term work trade
initially with long term possibility. Interest and passion are
the most important skill sets but it would be rad if you have
knowledge in any of these areas: animal care (we tend
sheep/chickens), gardening, natural building (cob, rammed earth),
herbal-ism (we grow lots of herbs!), cooking, spinning/knitting
(sheep wool), fermentation/cheese making (all kinds), web page
management (networking), carpentry/electrical, and digging! (lots
of shovel work). Cheers ya'll. We have plenty of tent sites
available underneath giant redwoods as well as a sweet guest room
in the main house for the right fit. There are four of us that
live here full time (two men, one women, one boy). For more info,

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS anytime between May and August 2015 only.
We are a Kiwi/Aussie couple in our late 30's/early 40's with a
primary schooler and a baby. Our eco guest house in beautiful
banos is a popular destination for tourists from all around the
world, including Ecuadorian. We are looking for volunteer(s) to
help with our guests; meeting and greeting, explaining about the
surrounds and what activities are on offer, help organize taxis
and activities (usually just a phone call is needed). For this
position, it is important that you are outgoing, friendly, can
problem solve, like chatting with people, can initiate
conversations and can talk on a range of topics (hence why we ask
for people from late 20's onwards who have a little bit of life
experience). The work is fun as you'll get to meet many people
from all walks of life and hopefully make some long-term
friendships. The work is usually pretty easy also. We just need
someone here who can speak English, as many of our guests don't
speak Spanish, and make them feel comfortable. Of course, it's
important to speak and understand Spanish also (which means
speaking Spanish on the phone sometimes). We ask for eight hours
a day for five days, 40 hours on average for the week. This will
usually be 2-10pm or 3-11pm and at least one day over the weekend
could also be required. Also note that this time isn't usually
spent doing physical hard work. Basically we need a presence in
the reception area, there is a lot of down time so there'll be
plenty of time for you to catch up on emails, surf the internet,
further study your Spanish, play the guitar, read a book or
whatever you fancy. Although we say 40 hours of work per week,
usually you'll only be 'working' for up to three to five hours a
day. The main thing is that you're here, in and around the guest
house, for at least eight hours a day. When there are few (or no)
guests, you can do the shopping, help in our organic garden or
other various projects we have around the place. We have
wonderful local employees to do the cooking and cleaning so it'd
be very rare for you to need to contribute with these. You may
need to help serve meals some evenings though. You will be
available for a minimum of three weeks. You will be compensated
with a free private room with bathroom, breakfast, discounted
Spanish lessons, drinking water, tea/coffee/drinking chocolate,
Wi-Fi and a great space to chill. If you're still interested in
the role, please get in touch and we'll talk further. Thanks and
chao for now. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Contact

Jeanne and Rob at the French Chateau-style estate

Jeanne and Rob became a team 25 years ago while working in
yachting in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. They spent the next
ten years running vessels in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and
U.S. waters. They worked as Captain/ Engineer and Mate/Chef on
motor and sailing vessels to 250-feet, private, charter, and
commercial. During that time they continued their marine
education to reach their present U.S. Coast Guard Masters
1600-ton license, with an endorsement of 3000-tons for offshore
supply vessels. During the year that they were threatened by and
survived eight hurricanes, all while responsible for their
client's multi-million dollar vessel, the couple decided it was
time to take their skill set ashore. At this point The Caretaker
Gazette entered their lives and hasn't left. 
The first position Jeanne and Rob found through the Gazette was
on a 400-acre property in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in
the late 1990's. It was a wonderful learning experience, however,
a considerable reduction in income. After 18 months a position in
Aspen, Colorado was offered in the Gazette. Upon being selected,
Jeanne and Rob left Virginia with warm wishes and wonderful
references. The Aspen property was busier, with much more
entertaining. There were new systems to learn and maintain. The
client's food sensitivity required a new approach to meal
preparations. In Virginia, Rob had been responsible for a State
inspected earthen dam and lake. In Aspen, it was a two acre trout
pond and irrigation system fed with water according to a "State
water rights agreement." Since it was a mountainside location
opposite Ajax Mountain, it was not unusual to find black bear
floating in the pond, elk grazing on the plantings, or fox
seeking attention.
Over the years the couple had read the issues of the Gazette that
came to them and talked about which positions they could fill. So
after almost four years in Aspen, when health issues changed
their client's needs, they were ready to seek the next
opportunity. Ever since receiving their first issue when Jeanne
and Rob first subscribed to the Gazette, they have shared copies
and info with all those who asked about their life choice.
Then, once again, about 11 years ago, the Gazette came through
and the next adventure began for Jeanne and Rob. This time it was
a combination of water and land. It was a 38,000 square foot
estate on a gated three plus acre property on the Lake St. Clair
shoreline, near Detroit, Michigan. The audition for the position
was a gathering in the home for 300 people as a fundraiser for
the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Entertaining was a large part of
this position. Family gatherings for the property owners
consisted of 50 - 75 adults and children. The property was made
for entertaining with indoor and outdoor pools, tennis court,
golf green, and loads of other amenities. Rob's duties were
mostly exterior, however, with responsibilities in security,
driving, and keeping all systems online and functioning,
including cleaning a 65-ft yacht. Jeanne was tasked with
maintaining the interior, cooking, event planning, flower
arranging, interior plant care, and seeing to the needs of client
and family. As in all things, time brings changes and leads to
the need to re-evaluate and modify. The clients had reached a
point where it was time to downsize as changing health issues
combined with family spreading and maturing. Their needs had
changed, hence a reduction in staffing.
So, it is back to the Gazette again with the hope that there is
yet another chapter to be written in the story of Jeanne's and
Rob's caretaking career. Over the years together, the couple have
taken on a variety of challenges and acquired many skills to
overcome those tests. Jeanne has a Bachelor of Science degree in
Home Economics from California State Polytechnic College. She
used it as a basis to build a wide repertoire of tasty, healthy
food styles. One client sent her to a one-on-one culinary class
with a famous chef in Paris. She has also taken numerous
specialty food courses. Jeanne is a firm believer in using local
ingredients in her cooking. This means a weekly trip to the
farmer's market in order to maximize taste and nutrition. Rob has
acquired commercial licenses in fixed wing aircraft and hot air
balloons. His degree in Aerospace Technology led to ten years as
an air traffic controller. He went to school for a commercial
trucking license and received endorsements for tankers, tandems,
and hazardous materials.  He has been called upon to perform the
task of chauffeur for some clients.  His degree in Hotel and
Restaurant Management was earned while employed in a three-star
restaurant. Both Jeanne and Rob received training in first aid
and firefighting as part of their Masters U.S. Coast Guard
licenses. While they continue to look for that next unique
caretaking opportunity, the couple are currently based in in the
Reno, Nevada area in order to be near Jeanne's aging mother.
Having found so many unique opportunities through the Gazette
over the decades, Jeanne and Rob are sure their next assignment
is just waiting for them to apply to, via The Caretaker Gazette.

collective is for anyone keen to learn, share ideas, and work
hard. We are building a sailboat and when she is finished we want

stable base for our community. On the boat side the biggest thing
is that all the inner plating and insulation are all finished up,
the bathroom (wet-room) is plated and all water tanks are welded
into position. Next big thing is to get the engine into the boat.
We have to lift it up three meters and then two meters sideways.
It's a little messy but we are working on this right now. Weight
of the engine is around 500 kg so we need a hoist-system. The
volunteers took some days off to hitch-hike to the west coast,
and came happily back home with pictures of fiords, and camping
outside in the mountains close to the glaciers. The summer has
been extremely warm one so contrary to what I was thinking that
they will almost freeze to death they got back to the farm
sun-burned with a happy smile on their faces. During the next few
weeks we will be harvesting what we have been planting this year
and we will work on the engine and rigging, so if you have any
skills you might think will be useful please feel free to contact

THAILAND

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER(S) (couples and groups
also welcome) to work at our dog center in Bang Saphan, Thailand
for one year (we will still accept people for shorter stays of
course). We are a small dog rescue center which cares for 50 plus
dogs at our center and around fifty more at a local temple. We
aim to have these dogs adopted within months of their arrival
unless they have medical problems, in which case we would keep
them at the center and care for them. We also neuter and treat
local street dogs. You would be given your own accommodation
(this is only available if you can commit for more than six
months) for a year in exchange for helping us in our effort to
have all of our dogs adopted within the year and eventually close
the center. Your day-to-day work will include helping with
adoptions (spreading awareness), treating and caring for the dogs
(feeding, cleaning, etc.), helping with rescues and fundraising.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Contact information for these ads is
available only to Gazette subscribers) will still exist once the
center dogs have been adopted but we will only treat and care for
the dogs at the temple and on the street beyond this point. Bang
Saphan is a well hidden secret and we want to keep it that way
except for volunteers who appreciate the natural beauty of
Thailand and a peaceful harmonious place to stay that makes you
think of paradise. If you would like to come and volunteer with
us we will help you organize your trip. We can arrange
transportation to the area, advise you on flights, supply
information about where to eat and what is good for trips, etc.
We don't charge you for coming to volunteer; we just appreciate
your help. Please read the thoughts of past volunteers at our
website when you visit: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Contact information

VIETNAM

WE NEED AN ENGLISH TEACHER for the duration of one to six months.
This is a nonprofit that provides training and job placement for
unemployed and rural women in the nearby villages. We make
beautiful souvenirs and all profits go back to help more people
in need. Our craft school in Vinh Long Province, Southern
Vietnam, is also a place to host local and foreign tourists and
visitors who want to learn more about craft making and the
Vietnamese culture. The school is surrounded by a relaxing
garden, lotus ponds and native plants, with the Mekong River
going by the front yard. It is a great place for the guests to
chill out and learn about life in the Mekong Delta. Since the
team in our craft school, including the artisans who are rural
disadvantaged women, barely speak English, we are looking for
someone to be based here to teach the team English and how to
welcome the tourists. Or if the person knows bag and art design,
they can teach the artisans new designs. Since we are a
nonprofit, where all the profits we earn go back to support more

stipend. Yet we are happy to help the volunteers to find housing.
