Dave, do you think that the characteristics of 'backcountry' overlap
with the more generic 'basic' ?

'Basic' currently includes roadside stops so we could not replace it
with 'backcountry'.
 
As I understand it, the term 'backcountry' is unique to the US ?

I am not opposed to adding another value, just don't want to do it
unnecessarily.

David
