GPS Route

The route shown below is a representation of a wild goose chase. Basically I decided to go to Microcenter and the Apple Store in Houston to buy some Apple stuff. So I switched on the Garmin eTrex Vista GPS unit as I left the apartment (bottom right) and proceeded to drive the freeway to the West Loop/Galleria area (right top and left sides of the rectangle. The return journey was down Richmond Avenue.

Why a wild goose chase? Well, all the computer stores in Houston seem to have honored Easter Sunday as a holiday - since when did the soldiers of commercialism take a day of rest other than Christmas?
