There are mailboxes on other side of road. 
  1. Turn left here onto the gravel/dirt road, opposite the mailboxes.   This dirt/gravel road twists and turns and goes uphill.  There is one crossroad—large dumpster and gate to FLOC on left, sign for Staff Community straight ahead and Retreat House to right.
  2. Turn right following Retreat House sign.  Stay on this road a short distance to rough intersection with  Christ Church Rd.  See the sign to the Retreat House pointing left.
  3. Turn left.  You are now on a long driveway that will end in front of the Retreat House.  Stay more or less straight on this.  Do not turn right onto Friends Way.
