  • Descrição


    I am 70 years old, a retired teacher, and French by birth. I live in a fairly large house, on a dirt road, a 10 minute-drive from town. Most people would enjoy the environment: there is wildlife around in the form of deer and elk, foxes and elusive mountain lions; but nothing else to do apart from being in nature! I have 7 acres of land/wood and never seem to be able to stay on top of it!

    I was born and raised in France and would be happy to help a volunteer with his/her French. Having lived in Colorado for 30 years, I can share quite a bit of information on this part of the world. I can also teach to knit or crochet!

    I'd like my guest(s) to spend a week to 12 days.
    I live in the foothills of Colorado at an elevation of 8200 feet (2 400 meters). We have a long winter during which I burn a lot of wood. I need help to cut a few trees down, block them and bring all the logs and slash to the house. It's physical work; the property is steep. We could have lots of snow, or none; it could be very cold or quite nice. I have a chainsaw and a sled to haul the wood to the house.
    The house could do with some sprucing up; the garage needs some attention...
    The real attraction is that if you enjoy skiing and have your own car, I am anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours away from the slopes: Loveland is 45 minutes away; Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper about 80 minutes, and Vail 2 hours. Passes are not cheap, though. But there's also the mountains: snowshoeing, back country skiing...

    It would probably be more fun if the volunteer had his or her own means of transportation as I am 7 miles away from the town. Evergreen has a few bars and restaurants, and all the shops one needs, but it's too far to walk. Denver is 45 minutes away; the 14,000 feet mountains are about 1 hour away. There are lots of open space parks nearby, one being 5 minutes away from my house by car. I could definitely let the volunteer use my car to go to Evergreen for the evening, or I could give them a ride when they need one.
    My expectations are simple: 4 or 5 hours of work per day, and keep your living space clean! We'll have dinner together. I do want the volunteer to enjoy being here. I encourage people to use their creativity. No smoking inside.
    I have no T.V. and cell phone service is unreliable at the house. Internet works fine. Landline.
