I may be able to travel with companions, as I may be driving (or hitching). Contact me!
Portugal, in August 2018!
I want to spend two weeks in Portugal this summer, in the month of august, above all to improve my language skills. Although I can't spend much time at one place, hosts can consider me like a consultant, as my varied skills and experience can be useful in self-sufficient operations.
I am an american, living in spain, and run a self-suffiecient homestay in the pyrenees. We have been hosting helpx folk for over 7 years now, and have met lots of great people.
I am a skilled worker. My experiences include- construction (morters, rockwork, tiles, grout, carpentry, restoration, plumbing, sanding, painting, adobes, roofing, electricity, and most machines that go with this work).
gardening (managing mulitple large organinc gardens, can work with tillers as well as tractors)
vineyards (managing multiple large orgainic vineyards, all the various prunings, plowing with tractor)
orchards (above all olive and almond, lots of pruning and recuperating, lots of shears, hatchets, axes, and chainsaws)
and various other skills such as cooking (also expert with fire and woodstoves), working with hens, rabbits, pigs, horses, ect. I can slaughter. distilling. making soap from lye. making lye from ash. foraging for wild plants, mushrooms, and truffles.
and a little bit of mechanic in me (my in-laws are mechanics).
And I'm a nice guy that plays lots of instruments and sings country songs.
