If you have no prior housesitting experience, how do you secure your very first gig? I've seen want ads for housesitters, but if you apply as a total stranger, I'd imagine they'd want references -- I sure would.

It's sort of a fantasy of mine to combine the Terhorst-style PT ("Perpetual Traveler") lifestyle with housesitting, thereby keeping both travel and living expenses very low. If you could plan your gigs in advance, when one gig is up you could simply move on to the next one, which might be in a different town, state, or country. Also, if you could secure gigs with wealthier clients who do major traveling, they might last several months rather than only a couple weeks or so. But I still imagine the hardest part would be getting started.
