    Re: Any Jack London Fans?

    Hi Gordon:
    
    I live in Ukiah about a block from Vichy Springs Resort which advertises
    that Jack London stayed there on a number of occasions.
    At that time it would have been quite a journey by horse and buggy from
    either Oakland or San Francisco to here.

    Have Fun,
