DIRECTIONS:

From anywhere West of Cornwall, take Highway 401 East to exit 814.    Take Highway 34 North to Alexandria.   You will pass an Independent grocery store on your left in Alexandria, and about 2 lights later, you will see a Church on your right at the lights.  Turn right here (it will say County Rd 10 which is also Glen Robertson Rd).  Stay on Glen Robertson Rd for about 1.5kms, Tina’s place will be on the left, about 3 driveways past a small cemetery, #20609.

From Ottawa, take Highway 417 East to exit 35.  Turn right and follow signs to Alexandria/Highway 34 South.  You will pass through town (Scotia Bank on your right).  At the lights by the big grey Church (on your left), turn left onto County Rd 10 which is also Glen Robertson Rd.  Stay on Glen Robertson Rd for about 1.5kms, and Tina’s place will be on the left, about 3 driveways past a small cemetery.

From Montreal, take Highway 40 West (towards Ottawa).  Get off at exit 17 (in QC) and turn left at the stop at the bottom of the exit ramp onto route 201 South.  Stay on the 201 South for approximately 9km, then turn right onto Ch.Ste-Marie (201 will curve to the left and you need to turn right-no stop sign and a little easy to miss).  Follow Ch. Ste-Marie until the end (at the T-intersection), turn left onto route 325 South.  In about 2.2kms, turn right onto Bedard Rd.  This takes you into Ontario and becomes Glen Robertson rd.  It’s about 17kms from when you turn onto Bedard, until Tina’s driveway (on the right hand side).  If you hit the lights and see a Church on your left, you’ve missed my house by about 1.5kms.
