Very responsible, retired engineer, capable in house-sitting/pet-sitting and all handyman services; twenty five-year homeowner.
Non-smoker, no drugs or alcohol. Have motorhome or other two wheel drive vehicle.
Will consider short notice availability situations and isolated living circumstances. Any/all holiday periods are acceptable.
Either dial-up landline availability, Wi-fi, or hardwire computer connectivity is needed, if the term exceeds one week. Alternatively, any location having AT&T accessibility is acceptable.
History, long-term: caretaking a Hot Spring resort facility for six months...duties included performing guest services, shopping, grounds-keeping, and all maintenance.
Recent, short-term: cat/dog sitting, up to 11 at a time, some requiring medication injections; Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Washington.
Several owners have asked for my return for future sittings and handyman caretaking. They always have first consideration on my schedule.
References available; will work with or supervise a team. Available for co-caretaking, particularly with collaborators having complementary talent/skill sets. Typical collaborators, in the Western States, can help cover situations requiring couples, needing care for equines or livestock, or being available on long-term or continuing bases. Their experience is comprehensive: from Park Ranger to Estate Co-ordinator. Recommendations and references for individual collaborators are available on request.
The My Calendar feature above is generally kept current. However, if it appears that I am already scheduled during a time frame you are planning: with sufficient notice, we might well be able to cover your requirements with one or more collaborators, approved by you.
