(PS. Shaggy, you are not the driver !)

Google is pretty good these days, but, roughly speaking, do this:

1.) From central Bangkok, take your favorite bridge across the Chaophraya onto Borom heading West toward Salaya & Putthamonthon. 
2.) As you near Putthamonthon the overhead signs will start to show exits left onto 3310 marked "Putthamonthon Salaya". Follow these signs and exit left.
3.) After exiting left you'll see four big signs, one marked "Mahidol University Salaya." Follow that one as it takes you up onto an overpass that curves right and then descends heading North into Salaya proper. DO NOT TAKE THE U-TURN BRIDGE BY ACCIDENT. IF YOU DO, DO NOT BLAME "THE DIRECTIONS."
4.) After about 750m you'll pass under a second footbridge. Stay left and, as the road splits, take the left fork toward 4006. You'll see the clock tower ahead. Follow the road as it turns left at the clock tower onto 4006.
5.) Zero your odometers as you turn onto 4006 (measurements, exciting!)
6.) Proceed straight for 9km on 4006 and begin to slow down and stay to the right. You will see "The Light" mu baan coming up on your left.
7.) Just past "The Light", but on the right, you will see a large transmission tower and then a small gravel road next to a factory, marked with HHH sign. The small gravel road on the right looks like you probably shouldn't turn right there. Ignore your instinct and turn right into the small gravel road. It will have a large, simple restaurant sign in addition to the HHH sign.
8.) Congratulations, you have arrived!

Take train 35 to Salaya, departing Hua Lamphong at 14:45 or Bang Sue at 15:09. 
Upon arrival at Salaya Railway Station, exit South past the market and walk to the large road (4006). Cross over and hail a taxi heading West and follow the instructions above from 4006.
