Near the Stafford/Prince William County line, take I-95 Exit 148. Go west as you exit the interstate, and proceed about 1.3 miles on Russell Rd/MCB-1 to the guard station (after the traffic light). You will need to show government-issued photo ID there, and say that you are attending QOC's orienteering event. Only pre-registered participants will be allowed on base. Once through the gates, follow QOC signs to the event area. You may not drive on any other roads. A directional map in PDF format to LZ Peregrine (our registration area) is available here.
