This will be our first year also. Quartzite AZ for 3 months. We have a security system for the S&B, a neighbor to do the sno blowing a brother (not on best terms of late) that lives close by (45 minutes) in case something should happen
. For years I did all this for a neighbor that went south every year now they are gone and I need someone to do it for me
There is nobody I would trust going into the S&B except for her I could ask the lady that I used to do it for but she is now in her 80's but still going strong still drives her Jeep around town
. I think that's a lot to ask her to do.
If I shut the water off to the house that would eliminate one problem but the heat is another big problem as it can get to be 20-30 below for weeks. The HVAC unit is getting up in years also (15 years)
I only have to get thru this year as next year we are going to be full-timers
I am going too keep my fingers crossed
