To find the LickinFlames studio at 14306 Hobnob Way in Nevada City, CA:
This is situation where GPS and Google may not do you any favors. It is best not to use either to drive to the studio. Besides...cell reception is "iffy" because of the hills so a printed bit of paper may be best. If your GPS tells you travel on "Bernard Way" it is wrong and is taking you to a road that does not exist...follow these instructions.
Drive North on Highway 49/20 (from Hwy 80 in Auburn or Hwy 20 from Marysville) through Grass Valley and then through Nevada City.
Take the Highway 49 turn just past Nevada City to the LEFT towards Downieville. If you do not make the turn onto Hwy 49 and continue straight you will be on Hwy 20 headed to Truckee and beyond. The turn onto 49 is from the LEFT lane.
The first light (the only light in Nevada City) after the turn onto Hwy 49 is North Bloomfield…turn RIGHT ontp North Bloomfield at that light.
Head up the hill for .5 miles to a “T” in the road. It is NOT a stop sign in your direction. Turn LEFT at the “T” and onto Lake Vera Purdon Road. There are a couple of really interesting twists in the road before that “T”…if it says 15 mph…sorta means 15. Just after the turn on Lake Vera Purdon Road, Vera Purdon will bend to the RIGHT. At that point you will see a “Y” in the road. You might get confused and want to go straight onto Airport Road. You don’t want to do that, we have verified through personal experience that going straight is the wrong direction. LVPR bends to the RIGHT and down the hill.
Measuring from the “T” go .5 miles to Rock Creek Road. Turn RIGHT onto Rock Creek Road (you can only turn to the RIGHT and it is the first non-driveway after going down the hill) and travel another .6 miles to the turn onto Nobnob Way. Hobnob Way has a bunch of mail boxes at the base of the road. Hobnob sort of looks like a driveway. It goes up steeply. Turn RIGHT onto Hobnob (you can only turn RIGHT).
Travel along Hobnob for .4 miles and look for our house number on your left. Turn left at the house numbers and immediately right down into the driveway. Parking anywhere in the driveway is fine.
Finding the studio and our home is much easier than it reads in print.
