But when we went to leave, I took a left where I should have taken a right and started heading east instead of west to I-5. Before I had a chance to turn around, or even pull off for directions, the road had looped north and then west into Orange. Once there, I fond a shopping center where I could pull off and check the map, only to find we were just a few blocks for CA-55 which I could have taken south to I-5 -- except I got into the HOV lane which didn't exit to it. I ended up on I-405 instead, but sill got home almost in time.
robot_grrl did inform me that are Chicago Realtor had called before I got home but would be calling back (a call I'm still waiting for). Hopefully he calls soon since we need to head to Poway before 1:00 to get gas on the way to the ComStation Z meeting.
