Where is that repeater?

I'm fairly often asked that question.  As mentioned elsewhere on this site, the repeater we use is operated by LCARA.  It is located at their clubhouse, at 966 Lone Oak Rd. in Columbia Heights above Longview.  Here's the exact location of it in Google Maps.  In the middle of that view you'll see the driveway split and go to two buildings.  The one to the left is a commercial transmitter; the LCARA clubhouse is the one on the right.

After posting this, I thought to check their QRZ page.  As you can see if you click the Detail tab on that page, someone already did the work of correctly locating it on there, and if you're logged into a QRZ account associated with your callsign, you'll see a nice vector on the map from your QTH to theirs.  Thanks, Caleb, for prompting me to look this info up.
