The Lazy Toad Ranch is located in the Central Texas Hill Country, just northwest of Austin.

We currently have 3 horses, 1 donkey, 9 cows, and 3 dogs.

We get involved in all kinds of fun projects, such as Burning Man, Pirate Week, Rennaisance Faire, BattleBots and Stunt Flying.

You can read Fuzzy's FaceBook Page even if you do not have a FaceBook account.


Our newest hobby is expedition Jeeping, also known as Overlanding. Our rig is a 2011 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited with an AT Overland Chaser tent trailer.

The trailer has been rebuilt as a sleeping compartment called the Toad Pod™. The built report is on TVenturing.


We have several albums in our Travel pages, including trips to Florida for the launches of Atlantis STS-122 and Endeavour STS-123 and STS-126 Japan, the Mediterranean the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Providenciales and Burning Man 2004.

These days we put most of our travel photos on Fuzzy's Facebook Page.

Data Groupies

Data Groupies is a project by Fuzzy to model the 2020 coronavirus epidemic using the skew-normal distribution.

The Data Groupies Theory Page is basically a conference paper without the conference.

Team Toad

Team Toad is our family's fleet of combat robots.

We competed in BattleBots from 2000 to 2002 (Seasons 2-5). We competed in NERC events and RCG events between 2001 and 2003.

After a haitus from robot combat, we got back into competing at BattleBeach 4, RoboGames 2006 and RoboGames 2008, 2006 RFL Nationals and our latest events Combots 2009 and Robogames 2011.

We're proud to welcome our newest honorary member of Team Toad, SGT Andy Vinh.

Robot Club

Get Metal Munching Maniacs, the DVD. This DVD shows the last tournament held at the Robot Club & Grill on May, 2003.

From the Fall of 2002 through the Spring of 2003 we owned and operated the Robot Club & Grille, the world's only permanent robot fighting facility open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The club is closed and gone, but the fight record and online store live on.


Fuzzy is an avid photographer, and takes picture of everything he sees. You can find his work on his Flickr page and on his FaceBook albums.


The Contact page lists ways to get in contact with Team Toad.
