 +===Notes on Driving to Microsoft in Burlington===
 +Microsoft is at the 5 Wayside Rd building. ​ Here are some suggestions from a group member (thanks MK)
 +
 +When I put "5 Wayside Rd, Burlington"​ into mapquest.com on my computer, I
 +get a very accurate route showing the turn-off into the building'​s driveway,
 +etc.
 +
 +However, when I enter that address into the Waze app on my phone, it takes
 +me *past* the driveway to a long stretch of no-driveway sidewalk alongside
 +the shopping mall across the street--very confusing!
 +
 +Thus, I recommend some explanation on the BNUG site that gives the reader:
 +  * The suggestion to try "7 Wayside Rd" in one's GPS app,
 +  * some idea what to look for regarding finding the building'​s driveway (it's across the street from the mall)
 +  * After entering the driveway you come up to a fork, go Right and drive *around* the building to get to the appropriate parking lot, since some of us keep our eyes on street level and may not notice the "​Microsoft"​ sign many stories up, :)
 +  * and that after signing in at the receptionist,​ they will direct you to the meeting room.
