Ah yes - punishing the soloist/tandem group to streamline the process.

Think about it logically - at $43/night (for example) versus the $125 Illegally occupy campsite fine.. guess which route a lot of soloists/tandems might end up taking. This will decrease revenues instead of increase, given that you can't catch and fine everyone. It would be wise for them to just keep collecting $12.43 per person per night, or simply $12.43 per campsite per night.  I suppose it all depends on what the set amount per campsite per night is. lol could you imagine paying $43/night for a backcountry site? Even with the current per person per night fee structure, the value doesn't begin until 4 or more people are in your group.

Get back in there, please! They need people with actual experience, you know, instead of just theory, apparently.

LOL - what's funny is - I have taken the exact same photo (minus the human) and I just realized I must have turned around to take the shot - for one, there is no bow of a canoe in my shot, and two, the ripples on the water from my canoe suggest I was going the other way (which makes sense as I've only ever done that route towards Lower Spec, not away).

But exactly right is the best kind of right - so go for it Diana!

Some things are just too good to be true.

The 'print your permit two weeks in advance' feature is only for parks that do not offer an online reservation service. So this awesome feature does not apply to Algonquin. Which kinda sucks since this was the only part of the online update I was looking forward to. Also, I don't see the possibility to reserve cabins online either (at least for Algonquin, that is). This update is kind of a bust for AP, but definitely some progress for other parks, so thats good.

Nailed it.

Starting from access 1 or 29 it would take 12 portages to get to this spot (again, travelling in the same direction)

You're up, Shawn!!

Not Catfish, though she is a beaut!

The access points in question are the first and the last on the list of canoeing access points.

Not Timberwolf..

John you are on the right track.. same number of portages from two different access points.. but in my case, regardless of where you start, it would be 12 portages to get to this spot (keep in mind, travelling in the same direction as me) so last last few (erm, 9 portages) would be the same, regardless of what access point you choose to being - only the first 3 would be different, the last 9 would be the same.

Indeed, not North Cuckoo.

It's definitely north of 60. And to get to this exact spot, going in the same direction that I was, you could go from one of two different access points and it would be the same number of portages either way..

Ash, in addition to what we discussed offline, just wanted to say - super cool find man!! The boxcar is one thing but I am insanely intrigued about the Dahlia station ruins, so much so that I may head out for a hike in early November if I can. I think that would be a great place to see some history.

Really cool find, congratulations!

As mentioned over on YouTube, really great video man - you've got a knack for making them short & sweet, showcasing exactly what is out there to be seen & explored. Great work, keep filming and I'll keep watching.

(LOL at the TenaciousD cover ;))

Lol thanks Diana. You'd be correct in your statement about it looking more like the northern end - but as you know, I like to spend most of my time in AP above Opeongo or higher, so it could be any northern lake ;)

Though you and Bob may (probably?) have been here in the past, I don't think I've ever seen either of you mention here or on any other forum or your website.
