Directions: Main roads into Danville are Rtes. 29 and 58. Take your best 
            to either. If coming in on 29, watch for and take exits marked
            for 58 East to Ringgold and South Boston. Once on 58, coming
            either east or west, look for the billboard for Cheryl's
            Restaurant. The turn-off will be a mile after that, after a
            blinking caution light. If coming east on 58, turn left at Cheryl's
            onto 726. Continue until the speed limit changes; start to look for
            the next turn-off. Turn right onto 655. The camp will be on your
            left shortly afterwards. Continue on the dirt road; troll will be
            in a small building on your right (Ho-Ki-Hi or some such a thing).
