We are a recently retired couple currently living in Upstate SC and Charleston.. I am a retired insurance executive - many years in the Commercial Property & Casualty Insurance business. BA - Economics. Brenda is a retired ( after twenty-nine years ) first Grade school teacher. BA/Masters in Early Childhood Development. She is also an accomplished landscape artist.

Although we are both in our  sixties , we  feel like a couple in our mid-forties. We are both avid runners and in excellent health - we run/walk several miles each day ( dogs are welcomed to join us ). We also are experienced hikers / backpackers - we love the outdoors and have backpacked throughout the US and Europe since the seventies. For the last five years we have been traveling approx six months each year.

We are both well-read and well-traveled. Our four children are all college graduates - and happy / responsible young adults. Both of us grew up "out in the country" with plenty of dogs & cats ( plus horses, rabbits, chickens, etc ) - we love animals. Our resident kitty cat - Asland - is a 15 yr old tabby & is very mellow ( fortunately, my sister loves to care for Asland during our many travels ).

We are very health-conscious - no alcohol, no drugs, no smoking.Brenda is a "neat freak."

For the last five years, we have had the pleasure of housesitting an isolated cabin/cottage situated on a mountaintop in the high desert mountains north of Prescott, Az. The cabin is located eight miles down a dirt road . Our main responsibility is to keep the two resident kitties - Bear & Little Bit - inside the cabin at all times  - since they would make a nice meal for the local coyotes/ bobcats, etc. We usually spend 4-6 weeks each year at the cabin - this year ) we will be housesitting the cabin from 8-29 until 11-8.The owner would be glad to offer references. We also invite the owner to enjoy our condo in Charleston, SC.

We are very flexible as far as housesitting is concerned - big cities / suburbs / rural areas / wilderness areas throughout the US, Europe, Central America and the Carribean. Opportunies of two weeks or longer would be preferred. If the right opportunity presents itself - we will be on a flight to Montana, NYC, Italy, Panama, etc with a few days notice.
