HAVE: Directions to Olym[ia Plant Trade

bejoy_gw(PNW8)April 4, 2010

The address for the trade is 8005-1 Thrulake Circle SE. Olympia, WA 98513. Anyone needing directions can call me on my cell at 360-970-2868. The trade begins at 10:00 AM.

From North of Olympia:

1. Exit I-5 at exit 116. If headed southbound, turn left at the top of the ramp. If headed northbound, turn right at the top of the ramp. This puts you on Mounts Road, which becomes Nisqually Road, which is also the Old Pacific Highway further along.

2. Follow that road (40 MPH zone) over a curved bridge, over the Nisqually River, through the town of Nisqually (35 MPH zone), past Reservation Road (50 MPH zone) to State Route 510. At the stop sign, turn left (your lane will be slightly uphill) - there is a pull-out lane to facilitate merging onto Hwy 510.

3. Follow Hwy 510 to Meridian Road and turn right. (Note: Meridian road is on the outside curve of the road, and this is where people get lost - they overshoot it. If you find yourself at the Red Wind Casino, you went too far. Turn around and follow directions as if coming from Yelm.)

4. Turn left at TriLakes Market and Gas Station onto Spurgeon Creek Road.

5. Follow Spurgeon Creek Road to 80th. Turn right.

6. The clubhouse is dead ahead, at the top of the hill. You do not have a stop sign, so pull straight into the parking area and find a place to park.

From South of Olympia:

1. Take Exit 108. On the ramp, there are 3 exits. Stay left and take the last exit which becomes 3rd Ave SE.

2. Go to the light and turn right onto College Street.

3. Travel for about 8 miles on College Street. At 45th, there is a traffic circle. Take the 2nd exit to stay on College Street.

4. Go to 2nd light after traffic circle. There is a Safeway on the left and a LoweÂs on the right. Turn left onto Yelm Highway.

5. Get in right lane of Yelm Highway and take right turn at 2nd light onto Ruddell Road.

6. On Ruddell Road, bear left to get back onto Yelm Highway. After the road straightens out, you will see the AmTrak Station below and to your left from the bridge over the railroad tracks. Continue straight.

7. Continue to TriLakes Market and Gas Station at Corner of Yelm Highway and Spurgeon-Creek Road. Turn right onto Spurgeon-Creek Road.

8. Follow Spurgeon Creek Road to 80th. Turn right.

9. The clubhouse is dead ahead, at the top of the hill. You do not have a stop sign, so pull straight into the parking area and find a place to park.

From Yelm:

1. Take Highway 510 toward Olympia. Follow the signs to Tumwater and Lacey, which will have you turn left onto the Yelm Hwy.

2. Follow the Yelm Highway until you see the TriLakes Market and Gas Station, on the left.

3. Turn left at TriLakes Market and Gas Station onto Spurgeon Creek Road.

4. Follow Spurgeon Creek Road to 80th. Turn right.

5. The clubhouse is dead ahead, at the top of the hill. You do not have a stop sign, so pull straight into the parking area and find a place to park.

Thanks, Mom, for posting the directions here. When I was reading them, I realized that I had made a mistake on the directions from North of Olympia. I did some extensive editing from last years' directions trying to simplify them, and I cut out a crucial step by mistake. Here are the corrected directions from North of I-5:

From North of Olympia:

1. Exit I-5 at exit 116. If exiting from Southbound I-5, turn left at the top of the ramp. If exiting from Northbound I-5, turn right at the top of the ramp. This puts you on Mounts Road, which becomes Nisqually Road, which is also the Old Pacific Highway further along.
2. Follow that road (40 MPH zone) over a curved bridge, over the Nisqually River, through the town of Nisqually (35 MPH zone), past Reservation Road (50 MPH zone) to State Route 510. At the stop sign, turn left (your lane will be slightly uphill) - there is a pull-out lane to facilitate merging onto Hwy 510.
3. Follow Hwy 510 to Meridian Road and turn right. (Note: Meridian road is on the outside curve of the road, and this is where people get lost - they overshoot it. If you find yourself at the Red Wind Casino, you went too far. Turn around and follow directions as if coming from Yelm.)
3a. Follow Meridian Road to the Yelm Highway. You will see the Evergreen Valley Grocery Store and Gas Station across the highway. Turn right onto the Yelm Highway.
4. Turn left at TriLakes Market and Gas Station onto Spurgeon Creek Road.
5. Follow Spurgeon Creek Road to 80th. Turn right.
6. The clubhouse is dead ahead, at the top of the hill. You do not have a stop sign, so pull straight into the parking area and find a place to park.
