group2-4Grand Canyon – Backcountry Management Plan
River Assisted Backcountry Travel Joint Comments

Dear Superintendent Dave Uberuaga and Wilderness Coordinator Linda Jalbert,

Since November 2012, Rich Rudow, board member at American Canyoneers and Dave Mortenson, board member at Grand Canyon Private Boaters Association, have been jointly working through the issues concerning RABT (River Assisted Backcountry Travel), for the upcoming Backcountry Management Plan. RABT is the much preferred term to packrafting because we feel it better implies our mutual position and philosophy in regard to backpackers relying in part on river travel.
