Directions from airport below – Important to follow these and not GPS
The major freeway is I-5, which you would take south from the airport to the 512 interchange going east to Puyallup (pronounced pew AL up — it’s an Indian chief’s name) Several lanes turn off at this exit — some going west, some east. You would take want to be in the first lane going east. In other words, at the exit, there will be two lanes that are marked to go to the right, you want to be in the lane next to them as this will be the first lane to turn left, or east. Stay in this lane because as soon as the traffic goes left, you’ll be taking the first exit off of 512, which is Steele St. People are used to merging in and out of here as another lane of traffic comes in from I-5 from the south. Sounds like a disaster, but it isn’t!
At Steele st you will go left. Doesn’t matter which left turn lane you are in. Two lanes will go left, one goes right. Stay on Steele St. It is also called the Spanaway Loop. This goes on for quite as two-lanes, then merges down to one lane, then it takes a sharp left turn onto a one-mile joke of a road called the Cross-Base Highway which ends at one of the oldest roads in our part of the state called The Mountain Highway, or State Highway 7, also known as Pacific Highway. Take the right lanes here and merge onto the Mountain Highway. Stay on the Highway for another 15 minutes or so. At 224th St, the two lanes merge down to one lane. Keep going! Continue on and when you reach the top of a very steep hill, you take a left on 288th St E. We are 1/2 mile down 288th on the right. BIG SIGN says Changing Rein. Drive through the gate all the way to the back of the property and park in the lot by the arena. Come to the house. 6204 288th St E.
