  1. Default Los Angeles to Kansas City Drive

    Hi

    I'm taking this drive in late August.

    I'd like to get it done in two total days. Should I take I-15 to I-70?

    I'm leaning towards the I-40 to US 54 . Seems more direct. The only question, is being that US 54 is a highway and not an Interstate, will it slow me down?

    I'd like to leave Thursday morning and arrive by late Friday night.

    Default take 3

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Sorry, but its an 1600 mile drive from LA to KC which is far more than we'd recommend to safely drive in 2 days. You'd have to be on the road for more than 14 hours each day, and there is no way you can get enough rest to safely complete the drive while spending that much time in a car.

    I would take I-70, but you need to plan for 2 overnight stops. US-54 only saves you 40 miles, but a good chunk of it is on non-interstate roads through towns with stops and lower speed limits, so it will likely take longer.

    I can use three days if needed.

    If I go I-15 to I-70, where should I stop on my first day?

    I can go further than St. George, for sure.

    Default roughly

    Well, St. George is less than 400 miles, so you'll want to get farther than that.

    Salina UT and Limon or Burlington, CO would be pretty decent stops. That's about 600 miles each and would put you behind the wheel for around 10 hours a day, and leaves you a shorter 400 mile day for day #3.
