Directions to my house:

Note, if you use a GPS or computer directions, some have been known to take people off on logging roads which is not the best way to go.   


From Tacoma, take I-5 to Olympia and get off at US 101 which says Ocean Beaches.  Stay on 101 until you reach Mud Bay (about a mile or two).  You don't want to go toward Shelton and exit to the right.  Guide left which is State Route 8 going to  Aberdeen/Montesano/Ocean Shores.  Continue on State Route 8 (which  turns into US route 12), thru Elma and across the Satsop River.  After crossing the Satsop it is about 1 mile to the next exit, Brady.  Signs will also say Schafer State Park next right.  Take the Brady exit (right off of Hwy 12) toward Schafer State Park.  


From Aberdeen, take the Brady exit (on the Aberdeen - Olympia  road), going north.  Go straight at the next stop sign on the Brady - Matlock road (also called the Middle Satsop road), toward Schafer State Park.


Once on the Brady-Matlock road (also called the Middle Satsop road), Go just under 5 miles, cross the Satsop River and you will see an "Elk Crossing" sign.  About 1/3 mile after that sign  you will see a warning for a big curve.  The entrance to Schafer Meadows is on the left side opposite the curve.  The community is gated.  If the gate is closed, there is a toggle switch on a pole by the entry.  Follow the road till you see about 20 mail boxes.  Turn right and then proceed up the hill.  When you reach a large barn, bear to the right which is Schafer Meadow Lane N.  Go past the barn/house (up on the left) and up a short hill.  We are the next house on the left at the top of the hill.  You will see the shop with 7 RV garage doors.
