    Good idea for a forum.

    May it be filled with solutions, creativity, energy, imagination and inspiration - as opposed to just whingeing about Dominicans and sound-offs about the state of the environment, although there is a place for letting off some steam I suppose.

    Just let's not let negativity and fatalism dominate.

    Keith is both wise and cool, clearly knows his stuff and will make it work.

    Thumbs up Excellent choice Rob

    KeithR is well tempered, logical and is overall a nice guy.

    I hope this forum offers solutions to the terrible littering problem that I observed on my last visit. Beer bottles and plastic containers were all over the side of the roads, how disgusting!

    Gee, thanks, Jon! You just think that because you talked to me after a few Presidentes were in your system.

    Jon, check out our separate thread on litter and environmental education. Feel free to jump into the discussion!

    Best Regards,
    Keith

    This is my goal. I want some brainstorming, some real exchange of info and ideas, sprinkled with equal parts realism and inspiration!

    Just let's not let negativity and fatalism dominate.
    Amen! Folks, I do not want to make this another platform for unbroken DR bashing. Sound-offs, sure. Holding the government, whether national or local, and businesses accountable for their failings in this field, definitely! But steady Dominican bashing, no! Take it elsewhere, folks.

    For those of you who don't understand, be forewarned I already know how to operate the edit & delete buttons!

    Best Regards,

    I would also like to have some reviews of the DR's parks and preserves. Anyone want to volunteer to start? How about you, Cleef? I know you love the outdoors and you're a terrific writer.

    Best Regards,
    Keith
    I sure will.

    I have some work on going to write about some of my experiences. I've been fortunate enough through my own exploration and with my schools' adventure club to be able to see and do some neat things.

    I'll begin work on posting my experiences as soon as time permits, hopefully before the holiday break, but most certainly after. If I have power through today, I'll post what I have ready.

    Great idea Keith, one that was due.

    Hurray for Brother Keith. As I stated before, they could not have made a better choice. You are a very unbiased and wise man and I know that you will get this going in no time. You are taking a stand in trying to help the DR. Now it's time for those complainers to stop complaining about the problems in the DR and start doing something about it. You can count on me, companero Keith.

    Default Great Forum

    I like the Idea of this forum. I have seen threads from organic produce to waste to energy. The irony for me is they are really can be one in the same.
    I plan on living in the D.R. in about four years. I retire from the Navy in 541 days" not that I am counting" Then 36 months of G.I. bill for finishing my education.
    I plan to live in the D.R. and be a hippie. I want to homestead and be self supportive energy and food wise. I will let my pension support my computer addiction.
    I have spent the better part of my teenage years along with all of my adult years looking at ways to live in the modern age with out being supported by the power company. All my dreaming looks like it will work just fine in the D.R.
    I look forward to the exchange of info in the future.
    John
