I am a sauna enthusiast from Chicago, I developed a passion for sauna from my wife’s family and friends who grew up on the Iron Range of Northern MN. I love the wood burning sauna and dream of my own. Although I like the idea of a backyard sauna in the Chicago Suburbs, I would prefer to wait a few years and build a really nice sauna on a lake. For now I use the fantastic Russian and Korean Sauna/Banyas of Chicago (I am a very good resource for the Chicago area) I have an above average health club sauna that gets over 200F, and I travel and try to stay in places VRBOs etc with kick ass saunas. I like the site, to quote the master (Glen Aurbach) “A rising sauna tide raises all saunas”. The same is true of websites and other resources.
