  • Description


    Hello, my name is Elijah and my girlfriend's name is Nicole. We house 10 elderly dogs (Chow Mixes) and four nice cats.

    We live one hour North of Anchorage, off the main highway, but very close to nature in every direction. 45 minutes to Hatcher Pass. 45 minutes to Talkeetna. 3 hours from Denali.

    We are looking for people who can help us with our ongoing DIY projects, like building out the downstairs warehouse and also help with renovating an Airstream trailer that we gutted last summer.

    We are also looking for a good mechanic that can help us with a 1985 Dodge Chinook motor home, a diesel Ford Truck, and also help with getting a little Ford Fiesta on the road again.

    We can always use help with watching the dogs, cats and the house while we are gone, as well as doing some basic chores, like the dishes, sweeping the upstairs and grooming and feeding the dogs and cats.

    This situation is very dynamic and has many places to help out. Tell me about yourself what you are good at.

    Being a laid back person is a must. We also prefer to have people who are health conscious, who are conspiracy believers and who are not jabbed.

    If you are interested in experiencing Alaska, having fun excursions like fly fishing, sailing, mining for gold, hiking, etc. and helping out with a good cause, please contact us.

    Be Well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will benefit from a cultural exchange by learning about our unique Alaskan way of life. It sure is different up here compared to anywhere else you have been in the world. You will have the opportunity to learn about nature, the history of Alaska and even share some great conversations over some home cooked meals and experience the long summer days and the long winter nights, quite possibly under the Aurora Borealis .
