About Us

Pilot Ridge Enterprises is named for a geographic feature near where I grew up. I still own 10 acres on the side of that ridge. It is land where my family has lived for generations.

I am interested in homesteading that land. So called alternative energy is also part of my thoughts for this place. Self reliance the goal. We live in interesting times, self reliance is the way to remove the risks of relying on big support systems.

The projects discussed here and the sites operated by us will work toward that end.

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

– Robert A. Heinlein — from The Notebooks of Lazarus Long
