aha!  that works!
thanks for the tip!

out of curiosity, how does one turn an OpenStreet map into something "searchable / routable"? or is that possible?

The million dollar question. That my friend is not possible. You can create maps that are searchable/routable but once the map has been created, with the current understanding and tools, it is not possible to  make an already available map searchable routable. Additionally, the reason we don't have searchable/routable maps is that cgpsmapper (the tool used to create searchable/routable version of maps) costs an arm and a leg for the routable version. It is about $2800... vs the free version used to create the majority of maps here.
