Live at a hot spring off the PCT and get Paid for it.

I found this on the Goldmyer Hotsprings website and thought someone might be interested in it.

Caretakers needed for the Goldmyer Hotsprings.

Northwest Wilderness Programs maintains caretakers at the Goldmyer property all year round to assure our preservation goals for the property. Caretakers live on the property 24/7.  Duties include check-in and management of our visitors and cleaning and maintenance of facilities.  This is a unique opportunity to live and work in one of the last remaining old-growth forested areas in the Pacific Northwest.

We require a 2-person couple or team who have a time-tested and good working relationship.  There is a small off the grid, well-endowed cabin for the caretakers to live in (utilities provided).  The salary is $1500 per month per couple.  Various time periods are available depending on experience and need.  Candidates must have good people and communication skills, have a positive attitude and clean well-kept appearance, have a basic mechanical aptitude, be self motivated and willing to work hard, and able to live in a remote (and at times isolated) mountainous location.

Address inquiries and questions to our office at 206-789-5631 (office hours are Tuesday 1 till 6, and Friday 3 till 8). Please mail resumes and references to: NWWP, 202 N. 85th St. #106, Seattle WA 98103.  Also include a cover letter that explains your past experiences that could relate to living and working in a back-country setting, and if you have visited Goldmyer.
