Take 35W north to the U.S. 10 exit. U.S. 10 is the second (more northerly) highway with that number. U.S. 10 proceeds west for a few miles to Highway 65 (also called Central Avenue). Take a right and drive north on Highway 65 to 237th Avenue (County Road 24). There is an Amoco Station at the corner (locally known as Cooper’s Corner). Turn right on 237th Avenue and proceed east to the stop sign, where the road makes a “T”. Turn left at the “T” (you will still be on County 24). After 1/4 mile or so, the road swings gently to the right (east). Continue for another 1/2 mile or so. The Cedar Creek mailbox will be at the first paved driveway on the right.
