OP, maybe you could/should get back to us when you have your camping business up and running. Thanks
Damn, that's the same beer that Mr. Ken offered me Keepcoming. These guys just don't keep their promises.
Overall a good discussion to see some
Positives and negatives. Both are worthwhile.
I hope it doesnt go downhill as many do.

I think you have some very noble thoughts and plans on trying to help unprivileged youth.I thought I'd been clear even from my thread in the introduction section... As well as here in this thread... But I'll state it again, in a bit more detail.
The goal of my wife and I is to find land (a farm) that can be turned into a type of vocational training facility for underprivileged youth... With a focus on migrant Haitian youth. Included within this vocational training would be farming, forestry, and hospitality, and the various matters related to each... The goal is to equip these young migrant Haitians with the necessary skills to become productive members of the community they live in... And, possibly enable them to be repatriated to Haiti with the mission of rebuilding local communities using the skills they have learned.
The foundation of the training would be on life, truth, service (capacity), and character... And I believe that a farming environment is an ideal environment to learn the fundamentals of all four.
Where camping comes in is in regard to hospitality... Learning to care for people who come as guests to your environment. It can also be a source of alternate income for the training center.
Why the Dr?
Some years ago my eyes were drawn to 600 acres in the state of Arkansas. I wanted to live in the middle of the property and not be bothered by anyone.
Except my wife wasn't big on the idea.
We then looked at Costa Rica... Which certainly has a draw... But then my wife began to consider the DR, where she has family. That was about five years ago, and I wasn't big on it (language barrier)... But at the beginning of this year, I succumbed to giving it a look at began to see something beyond just somewhere to retire to... I began to see the opportunity to do some relevant work for many more years... And so did my wife.
And so here we are... Pursuing a possible move to the DR.
This camping thread in which I'm trying to encourage people... Just an overflow from other work I'm doing.
Hope the above helps.

Why Haitians? (I think very few Haitians dream of moving back personally).
Other excellent questions that are no small issues. Illegal aliens should be deported.Who’s going to pay for it?
Are you sure you could handle situations among young people from barrios where some might be used to solve discussions with violence?
