The founder of El Rancho Del Fuego is Tennessee Bob. Straight out of the Appalachian mountains, this man lends heart and mind to humble, down to earth simple folk. Campfires blaze while songs are sung, folks play and dance around the fire. That is the mind of this homegrown Hillbilly. He has long since been removed from the country, but the country is still in the boy. Age has not affected his soul but his body has taken much beat-ing. He was always a fairly tall boy and skinny as a rail, but in his middle age, his body has scars, his face looks a bit sagging from the stress of the modern world and he sports a small but prominent spare tire for a belly, not quite a keg unless his belly is full! He always wears a crazy boyish smile unless stressed then he lends to the dark side more like his pepper friend, Jim Grim-The Carolina Reaper. There is a subtle sag in that boyish smile that he has been fighting to keep on his face through it all. He married a beautiful Ecuadorian woman late in life. They bore a son , Ethanito, and just when things were going well for them, the good ole U-S-of-A went south…and they did as well…literally! His dream of buying a ranch in Ecuador and creating a retreat came true at the last minute. Welcome to El Rancho Del Fuego.
Tennessee Bob had always dreamed of owning a ranch; a magical place nestled somewhere between the Andes mountains and the South Pac-ific coast. Once he and his family retreated to their Rancho Del Fuego, it wasn’t long before the world’s most spicy characters found it, a place where ono one of any stature would even think to retreat. Still, ne by one they showed up. Noone, including these spicy refugees, really know where they came from and who there were in their previous lives or why they came here. Some of the Pepper People have been slowly recalling bits and pieces of their previous mortal life through dreams and epiphanies.
Tennessee Bob tells his stories and they are worth having a nice long sit-and-enjoy by the fire at El Rancho Del Fuego!
