best tool for the job

Hello,

I'm not sure where to ask this, and I looked around but couldn't find an answer.  Here's the question:

I would like to perform a small evacuation 'analysis' for a subdivision.  The idea is to figure out how long it would take to clear out the subdivision and what road intersections would be potential 'choke' points.

I thought I could do this with Network Analyst (ArcView license level).  But I installed a trail version (thank goodness I didn't buy it) and it appears that I can not do the sort of analysis that I want.  I can find a route, service area, etc., but not specify 11k+ points (homes) with one car each that would drive to two points at the edge of the road network.

So, what do I need to do the job?  Do I need an ArcINFO license and use geometric networks?

Thanks in advance,
Esther
