Randy R McGhee
When you are in your early 50’s, life can have a way of presenting you with new opportunities. The secret is to be awake enough to see through all the ‘other stuff, curious to step out of your comfort zone and brave to take some risks. For Randy, this risk included leaving a good job and comfortable lifestyle. Along with his partner Marcel, the two men purchased a ‘Guest Ranch business’ south of Rocky Mountain House in Alberta and they began a new adventure. Drawn to the beauty of the area, this business venture became a spiritual journey. The first five years were challenging, but as the years passed, many guests became new friends and they helped grow the Lazy M Lodge into a successful business. With them the Lodge became a ‚Place to make memories‘. Follow the journey and listen to the many stories of the guests, that have made this place into their own treasured experience. Still a hidden gem, the Lazy M Lodge became a place to‚ rest, relax and recharge. Flavored with beloved recipes and accompanied by many pictures, this book is a unique, joyful and mind opening read.
