Hi,
I am a language teacher from Munich, Germany looking for information on an alleged farm near Big Timer off the 191 called "LazyG" , a cattle and guest ranch which is said to be run by Ed and Martha Gooch . I don't get access to their website and I need to know quickly whether the Lazy G ranch is still availbale for booking or does exist at all.
I'd be much obliged to anyone who can help me get that information asap.
Thank you so much (whoever) and greetings to Montana country from "Old Europe". Regards.

I belive the town is Big Timber. I have Googled the ranch but cannot find it. Are you sure it's Lazy G? There is a Lazy J near Big Timber.

I was in beautiful Bavaria about 11 months ago for three weeks. We did not stop in Munchen but by-passed it and spent 4 days in Garmich-Partenkirchen.

Good Luck in your search.!

Some more information: Go to www.Google.com and type in "Ed and Martha Gooch". It has two pages about the ranch, a phone number and email address.

The direct link is: www.klett.de/sixcms/media.php/71/54329/547220_72.pdf (broken link)

Hope this works for you.

Auf Wiedersehen!

Default Thank you

Dear grizzfan,
fancy that you've already been in Bavaria. I am glad to hear you liked it - we people from Munich like foreigners, especially Americans, because they are good company and don't bother if we get something wrong languagewise. I in return have a friend who worked in Bozeman for some months. Unfortunately I've never seen Montana so far.
Thank you so much for your pains that was very sweet of you, but actually the site you found is the exact page in our English book (for 7th graders) that I tried to verify, because I couldn't find the ranch either. The email given in the book doesn't connect me and I hesitate to call...And I'm sick and tired of German school books giving 'authentic' material which doesn't exist!! Anyway...
IT's been nice talking to you, grissfan
Happy trails and all the best.
Carmen

During our trip to Germany, we visited old friends in Schweinfurt and Amberg. What a nice time. Actually my family and I were stationed in Schweinfurt, Wurzberg and Frankfurt during a 7 1/2 year period between 1981 and 1989. We have many fond memories of Germany in the "old" days before unification. So our trip was one down memory lane.

Our German friends from Schweinfurt actually came to visit us in Montana last summer, two months after we saw them in Germany, and stayed in our little summer place in Livingston (a town which is not far from dude ranch country). You must visit Montana. As the book says, it is "The Last Best Place".

The link from rambush is a very good resource.

www.lazygranch.com takes you to an "interesting" website as well. The page from the school book makes this Ranch look so real.
