OpenLayers does indeed look cool. It looks like a bit of overkilll perhaps... what I'm trying to do seems straightforward enough:

1) nodes of type "event" have an "address" field. Fill in the address.
2) Single node pages have a map with a pin on it
3) views of multiple events have a single map with many pins <- (this is where gmap + geo is croaking)
4) ability to filter that view by distance -- xx miles from ZIP code. 
5) all US addresses

The modules I'm seeing do everything + the kitchen sink, minus one thing I need to do. Or they have dependencies that are broken. Am I inappropriately lost here? Am I just being dense?
