I am a student at CU Boulder and me and some friends want to take a roadtrip to California. It would be a very short trip...we would leave thursday afternoon and return sunday night. I know the drive is approx. 17 hours...so we would leave thursday afternoon and drive around 8 or 9 hours, then stay somewhere...and get up very early (around 6) and drive the rest. My question is...is there a faster route (we dont care about scenery while driving there) to San Francisco?
