I have been playing with the idea that we do not have to range far from home in order to have the feeling of true adventure….With that in mind, I am on a scouting mission to find killer locations for our up coming Quick-Charge sessions that will be right here in our own back yard, while feeling worlds away from normal life. After a week on the road exploring the hinter lands of Northern California, I finally found the gem I have been dreaming of. Vichy Springs Resort is nestled in the hills outside of Ukiah, CA, a mere two hours from the metropolis of San francisco, yet it feels like a portal to another time. Jack London and Mark Twain famously took in the champagne springs at Vichy and it feels like the world has stood still since then. The peace and quiet are profound as are the baths themselves….Literately unchanged since 1868. This place is only one of three springs in the World that have this unique combination of high alkalinity and carbonation, and the effect is well worth the trip. I can’t wait to bring you Argonauts here to see what Gilbert and Marjorie Ashoff and their team have built. In the mean-time, do yourself a favor and check this place out!
