Saw this on the golden list and thought it might be a good idea to post. I've cut/pasted the entire thread. Since I don't know where is where back there, please make sure you check with someone who is familiar with the area before starting off with the original directions.

I just happened to read the directions for the field tests and the
directions from the Crown Plaza are wrong.
From Show Headquarters (Crowne Plaza):
Turn left out of the entrance and go 0.2 miles to GREENWOOD AVE , Turn Left
onto EAST AVE(RI-113) - go 1.1 mi, Turn Right on BALD HILL RD(RI-2 N) - go
0.5 mi, Take ramp onto I-295 N - go 11.2 mi, Take exit #7B/GREENVILLE onto
PUTNAM PIKE(US-44 W) - go 7.9 mi, Bear Right on SPRING GROVE RD - go 1.3 mi,
Turn Left on DOUGLAS HOOK RD - go 0.4 mi, Turn Right on US-44. Go north on
Rt 12, left onto West Thompson Rd. (at traffic light) at the intersection of
Route 12, 193 and West Thompson Rd. Follow signs from there.

It says once you get off on exit 7B in Greenville onto Putnam Pike which is
RT 44 to take Spring Grove road. That is way off. I live here and the
directions are GET ON ROUTE 44, THAT IS PUTNAM PIKE. DON"T GET OFF IT,
FOLLOW IT RIGHT INTO CT. STAY ON IT RIGHT TO RT 12 AND 44. TAKE RIGHT ON 12
AND FOLLLOW SIGNS. If you follow the other directions you will be goijng
around in circles and about 10 miles out of your way. I am at this junction
at least once a week and live only 15 minutes away on the RI border. I hope
no one gets lost because going by those directions you would be all messed
up. It is very easy to get there. Hope this has been a help
