Newsletter #12 – Things have slowed down

I wanted to update everyone on what is happening with Lifewater Ranch these days.

Kim, me and our grandson, Henrik

Basically, as I have posted before, I got married.

This has completely changed the dynamics of the ranch. My wife Kim is amazing! She is a gourmet cook and I am spoilded rotten. However we are both diabetic and are working very hard to get our health back in order. Sandy’s sight is not good and he can’t walk very far due to a leg injury that is taking it’s time healing.

We just lost our caretaker and have just rented the second house out to a new couple and the RV spot is being rented as well full time.

We would like to move into the smaller home and rent out the larger one full time but we have to down-size first and this is something Kim is reluctant to do as she has moved too many times and accumulated a lot of stuff to deal with. Sandy is slowly clearing out his shop of useless baggage and still trying to find some items that have gone missing for years.

Sandy teaches Chess and is pretty engaged on that endeavor.

So the only thing we really have going is a bi-annual dry fast which you can see another post about that.

We also occasionally have wwoofers over to help us keep up with the ranch.

We still can operate as a B&B but I am finding Kim is not real excited about doing the work it requires. She is a perfectionist when it comes to entertaining guests. Anyone that does get to stay a night or two will have a very memorable time with fantastic food. I fear that until our strict dietary requirements cease, and they may never cease, it will be difficult to give our guests the kinds of things they should expect from Lifewater Ranch.

Please continue to check out our events calendar for upcoming fasts and other events we may be having and feel free to call or stop by for a days stay, enjoying our pool and hot-tub and hiking.

Camping is also quite possible here still though we have had few takers.

My heart is still bent on sharing this amazing place with as many people as possible, especially families.

Thank you to all who have contributed to LWR in the past and to all our guests that made all of this possible.

We endeavor to serve always.
