    2 possible routes to Little Apron Academy from Chik-Fil-A. The blue route involves dealing with a one-way-only part of Cumberland Pkwy up near CFA (so follow red arrows). *Note larger red oval--must turn left there to loop around and proceed north on Cumberland Pkwy. The alternate gray route is a 2-way route from what I can tell on the map.

    Route to WORK (Treehouse @ 2600 Cumberland Pkwy SE) from CFA: (similar, but continuing north on Cumberland Pkwy).

    Satellite close-up of workplace (Treehouse @ 2600 Cumberland Pkwy), showing possible right-hand turns he'd have made before parking:



    ETA: Seems he turned into the second row from the top, parking in first space (by tree), backing in.

    View from Publix parking lot where RH got lunch. Publix is directly behind Chic Fil a.
    Corporate can still be seen.

    Sattelite view of movie theater and pizza place where RH stopped.


    If RH was headed to the movie theater (red "B") he should have turned RIGHT on Hwy 41.
    Instead he crossed 41 and ended up at the back of the pizza place. (Purple triangle)
    The theater isn't even in the same shopping center as the theater, however it is one road he could take to get home.

    Satellite view of intersection just after exiting Chik-Fil-A (where two branches, N & S, of Cumberland are)--it appears that one cannot turn LEFT at this intersection (eg. the white car below) to proceed to Treehouse, but must go straight or right. (See white arrows on Google map below.)



    So it appears that in order to go NORTH, one would have to first go SOUTH, then loop around at Paces Walk. Here are Google's convoluted directions for travel from Chik-Fil-A to the daycare:



    Here's the larger picture:



    To get to work, one would just continue northward on Cumberland Pkwy after making the loop. If there are any locals who can tell me if these Google directions/street markings are wrong, please let me know!

    He would have turned RIGHT out of Chic fila and the hung LEFT U TURN where the circle is on the map. This intersection I referenced is at the red light where Cumberland Parkway crosses
    Paces Ferry Rd. That is where he would have turned LEFT to drop Cooper at daycare.

    *Remove that Paces Ferry Walk from the equation in the written directions. That would be incorrect and unnecessary.

    Thank you! I kept looking for the U-turn referenced by Stoddard and knew it wasn't at the split further up (two branches of N- and S-bound Cumberland). That makes perfect sense, now. Google maps/directions only go so far in helping out-of-towners...

    So...just ignore the lower loop, folks. U-turn at the red oval, and the route is even shorter.

    ETA: However, it occurs to me that Stoddard's testimony that he'd have made up his mind (to go to work instead of daycare) by the U-turn isn't quite accurate, then? B/c if going EITHER to daycare or to work, he'd have made the u-turn. The LEFT turn toward daycare at your intersection is the deciding turn. I'll have to go back and check notes; maybe he referenced the left turn, not the u-turn...

    Bingo! Google maps for directions has started doing a turn by turn GPS type drive there. Maybe I can figure out how to link it.

    Great street view shots and screenshots! These really give you a feel for what it is like to be there.

    Here is a zoomable map of some of the places that have been mentioned if you want an overview. Feel free to message me with an address of any other locations that you want me to add as the case progresses.
