    Default Las Vegas to Death Valley to San Diego

    I'm trying to do this trip in two days in May. I want to leave Las Vegas in the early morning, see all I can of Death Valley, and then sleep somewhere in or around there. The next morning I want to be on my way to San Diego and make it there within 7 or 8 hours. I'm wondering what the best route would be to take and if this is even a realistic goal. Two of the sights I really want to see are Badwater and The Devil's Golf Course. I'm also having trouble finding some reasonably prices lodging and am willing to do some camping. I would be grateful for any advice on these issues.

    It will be well over 110 degrees in May in Death Valley -- if you are prepared for hot weather camping should be no problem.

    Since it will be rather hot anywhere in Death Valley to camp, I would suggest heading for Mojave Preserve and sleep overnight at one of the campgounds in the upper elevations. Here is some information about the preserve and from there you can easily reach San Diego the next day.

    Consider Parump Nevada for a room.
    The casinos often have cheap deals.
    But if not,,
    Temps are brutal, and the winds are often biblical in strength,, but ya can do it for a nite.
