Employment opportunity

Thought I'd throw this out here...
We are members of a mountain cabin association in the mountains just west of Denver. I recently learned that they are searching for a new caretaker. There's about 16-17 cabins on about 450 acres located between Conifer and Bailey. -About 5 min. up-canyon from the Bucksnort saloon for those of you who know the area. In the winter the job is no more than taking a drive down the road checking thing out. In the summer there is a minimum of handy man work at the communal lodge. I think it only pays $300-400 a month but includes a house--everything paid but phone/cable. Free breakfast/dinner 4 or 5 days a week in summer season at the lodge. Very much a part time job. For someone who worked in Denver its an easy commute. Also a nice gig for someone who is retired. The house has a 2 car garage-slash-rover workshop. It certainly isn't for everyone, but for the right person it would be fun. It's a pretty setting- mountain canyon, stream, pond.

If I were younger, or retired it would be the kind of thing I'd like to do. It's an unusual position, but then D-90 people are unusual too, so I thought I'd post it up.

Cheers,

Rod

Well.... I like to sit on the porch and drink beer, fish, hike, and sit on the porch and drink beer. I'm not sure if thats the answer you were looking for. I'm not a mountain biker but my brother is, he says that very nearby is a veritable maze of mountain bike trails. I don't recall what the name of the area is. I'm quite sure dogs are not a problem, hell, everyone up there has one. It's pretty laid back. Weekdays there are rarely more than 2-3 cabins occupied. Weekends might see half the places occupied. Just good folks kickin' back and relaxing. To tell you the truth, in the height of summer I would doubt there is a half hour of work to do a day.

Sounds eerily similar to "The Shining". "Just some occasional handiwork"..."There's no one around during this time of year."..."By the way, we felt you should know there was a family murdered up here..."

Keith -you'd be welcome for the "sit on the porch and drink beer thing" anytime.
I'd love to get a group of rover guys up there.
I want a picture of the dining hall parking lot full of rovers!

This spring..........

Philip, The cycling in the area is sweeeeet. The Colorado trail runs through the area and Jefferson County maintains 100's of miles of singletrack in the area (Pine Vally Ranch and others). The Mount Evans wildderness area is also close by and the backcountry skiing is great. The Bucksnort is a great time all year long.

I am unemployed, thanks to a layoff, as of the 1st. (Anyone hiring a sysadmin/software tester/D-90 junkie out there?) Maybe I should look into it. Of course, that pay would barely keep gas in the 90, let alone parts.
