Otherwise, we would have corporations breaking all sorts of environmental laws and getting away with god knows what!
Lol. They are already doing that regardless of rules and regulations. They are above the law..
If a business wants to do business, then conform to the rules and laws of business.
There are businesses similar to this. For example I have a friend on the mainland of Scotland that makes yurts. He has 2 set up on his land and a
teepee too.. He hires them out and is always fully booked about 18months in advance. There is a compost toilet available to customers, fresh running
water, a bathroom and a small outside kitchen. However there are no fire alarms or smoke detectors. Yet he has had people inspect and has never had a
problem.. But this is in Scotland, not America.
There are many people out there who would and do pay a lot of money to come and stay in places like this. To have a break from the tireless chaos of
modern day life..
I have had a look at the pictures of the Turtle Island Preserve and it looks like a campsite with teepees and some small cabin huts.. It does not look
unsanitary or dangerous..
Does this mean they will make camping illegal..? When we go out and camp we set a fire, use the land as our toilet and have to fend for ourselves. We
might eat a diseased animal, we might eat the wrong berry, we might set our tent on fire. How do the modern day trappings possibly fit in there.. We
do everything at our own risk. We are responsible for our own actions.
All this man is doing is educating people. The people that go will be aware that this establishment is free from most modern day trappings.. And I
would imagine many of them will understand that they go there at their own risk..
I have found this:
Important Liability Waiver - Read before entering: Please be aware that Turtle Island Preserve is NOT LIABLE for your safety, health or any
impairment of it. Enter at your own risk. Your presence represents your acknowledgement that you accept full liability for any damage to your person
or property. This applies to everyone on the property or associated with Turtle Island Preserve.
I am not sure how a disclaimer works in the US. How does this work in correlation with county rules and regulations..
