Any hints on this one?

I'm unclear where to start for the instructions and how many units the forward commands actually mean....

And in what order to follow the instructions....

I get to read the instructions from top to bottom starting with the left column and then moving to the right column, but what I get when I do that makes no sense to me.  Any other ideas?

You have to figure out a good direction to start in, and make sure to keep track of the direction of the turtle, since each turn is relative to that.
