The Ranging Concept of the Pivotal Project
The word ranging is a code word for almost all outdoor recreation and activities.
Tourism is for outsiders, visitors from anywhere; ranging is for outsiders and residents.
It is combined:
... but it is also a name of a major concept that may be created and that seems essential for its long-term benefits to the people and environment of Craig County and its region.
When someone says "I'm in real estate" it means that they have one of many possible roles - secretary, sales, construction, supervision, computing, marketing, maintenance, legal issues, regional analyses, etc. Real estate is the phrase for the over-arching or inclusive concept.

|The well managed
environment for ranging
Briefly, ranging is:
Tourism seems to be needed and it has been a positive economic element of some communities. However, we have seen many such areas throughout the world but we also know of many failures and struggling families who have taken bad advice. The Pivotal-Rig concept and its formulation is so different that it cannot be recognized as any current form of tourism or ecotourism and thus requires a new name. We have a formulation for success that includes a key idea that ranging includes many different year-around activities and opportunities. These are activities for tourists and other participants, but also for local people and there is related employment elsewhere. It includes the concept of land and structures restoration and preservation, then long-term management and care. It is a dynamic among people, the land and environment, managerial expertise and active staff, and marketing, leading to profits that support the activities as well as the sophisticated managerial system for the land.
Many of the activities proposed within the Pivotal Project can be considered ranging. Largely concentrating on private lands and their resources, it may use local resources as well such as those of the Jefferson and George Washington National Forests and Lake Moomaw (Corps of Engineers).
