situation desired in Western WAgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
Greetings all! I am so glad to have found this space online. I used to check out the magazine a while back and have since inherited a computer so its good to know folks re online as well! I hope it is ok to make this kind of post here, as I saw a thred earlier about a position available, I thought I would put it out there that my family of 3 is looking for a place in rural Thurston in WA State. We would like to find an older homestead to care for and give life to, 2+ acres for a small business herb garden and personal veggies, and 1+ acre for a couple of chickens and the horse I've been longing for since I left KY. We have lived in WA for 6 years now and are looking of r sometjhing we can rent/caretake with the possable option to buy in 2 years. We figure word of mouth is the best way to find things so please keep us in mind if you or someone you know has a situation available. Warm Wishes Rebecca www.folksites.com/lostcreek firstname.lastname@example.org

Becca... Get out of Thurston County consider going 20 minutes south of Olympia to Lewis county your cost of living will go down considerably, I dont know how you manage the power bills in that county and property tax is double in thurston because its the capital county. something to think about.

Becca, I live in Snohomish County...to the north of Thurston (with King County in the way...)
I don't know of any situations locally, but have you thought of advertising for what you want? Maybe in the Little Nickel? Also, there is a caretaking group (kind of like a placement business or matchmaker.) I think they are somewhere in E. Washington, address- wise, but as I recall, they place all over the west (or maybe the U.S.) I think Countryside used to have their ads in the very back. Might be worth checking out.
Good luck with your search. I have found that once one sets one's sights on a dream, one can usually get it, or at least come close!
