I am doing a favor for my mother in law and driving her Dad's vehicle from Alaska to Vegas since he is being moved there out of the cold of Alaska at the end of July. Online map sites has me driving through Alberta BC, down through Montana, Idaho, Utah, and finally into Las Vegas. Does this sound like the shortest and / or shortest rout, or should I shoot down through B.C. and come down through Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada? Im on a bit of a time crunch, so speed is my thing. Any suggestions would be great, as well as good stoping locations along the way for good eats!
