Do we have an idea of who is going to be making the drive?

you can count me out for sure on this one. /cry
Hope everyone has a safe and warm trip.
When you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun.
Things are starting to look good. There's close to 2 feet of snow and I hear that guys are out ice fishing on solid ice. Glad to see there is so much interest in a serious deep winter hang.
I've got some feedback I wanted to put forward in the way of an alternate destination; Niger Lake, Ontario (Lat: 45°24'1.57"N / Long: 78°50'41.65"W). It's a crown land lake about one kilometer south of highway 60, just below the SW corner of Algonquin (no park camping fees). There looks like a trail of sorts leading up and over the hill, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't a little bushwacking involved.
On the plus side, it's holds brook trout!!!
One possible downside is parking, and I'm going to look into that. We may have to do a little shuttling, but Algonquin Outfitter is only 3 km down the road.
Just throwing it out there. It's a bit more out there, a little more challenging, but it looks like it might be fun.
We can always drive by and have a look on our way to Pog.

Survival is about getting out alive, Bushcraft is about going in to live
