ALFT Module 3:
JANUARY 11 2:00pm – JANUARY 14 2:00pm
◇ Plan to arrive on site between 1:45pm – 2:15pm on January 11th to check in.
◇ We’ll begin at 2:30pm. (Please have lunch beforehand, as the first meal we provide will be dinner).
◇ Four Springs is approximately 85 miles from San Francisco, just north of the Napa Valley region, near Middletown, CA. The drive from San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento airports are each about 2.5 hours by car from Four Springs. If you are flying into SF, your flight will need to arrive by 10:30am in order to arrive at the site on time – this allows for any delays, luggage, rental car pick-up and any stops along the way.
There are numerous airports to choose from in Northern and Southern California. Below is a list of airports, beginning from the closest to the farthest from the site. Please use Google Maps or Mapquest to determine which option will be best for you.
◇ San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
◇ Oakland International Airport (OAK)
◇ Sacramento International Airport (SMF)
Driving & Carpool Tips:
If you are flying from outside of California, please contact local participants to request a carpool, or plan to rent a car from the airport and perhaps share the rental with other out-of-state participants. Likewise, if you are a local participant, please contact your peers to also set up carpools, if needed. Here is a link to the carpool forum to coordinate your needs. It is your responsibility to know how long it will take to drive to the site from your location, and allow enough time for your arrival.
As we align with current COVID protocols and CDC recommendations, we are updating our requirements for in-person trainings.
