Quotes:

We solve the problem of uncertainty, and we get a lot of people out camping that normally wouldn't go.” (2:01) - Coleman Davis

 

If you own land, and have for years, it brings you to $0 in return until you sell it—unless you're growing crops or have cattle. We tell landowners, ‘Hey, we can solve a problem.’” (4:20) - Coleman Davis

 

How can we provide value to the camper? What's going to help the camper?” (14:58) - Coleman Davis
