Damn, if I didn't have shit going on here I'd jump on this.

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service is inviting a brave duo (either a long-term couple or a pair of BFFs) to become part-time caretakers for the solitary Maatsuyker Island for the next two years in exchange for pay and board. The beautiful island is located off the southwest coast of Tasmania, and features some incredible wildlife and stellar ocean views.

According to the Tasmania Govt Parks Facebook page- "this opportunity is now closed." Oh well.

I am always on the look out for these type of postings. My only problem is that I'm not handy.... And these people always want someone who can fix a generator, repair electric wiring, etc.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
