    Default Memphis to Las Vegas next week

    I'm going to Las Vegas for a conference next week and it's become a road trip for me, and I'm looking for a few suggestions. I had originally planned on taking I-40 to Kingman, AZ, and then taking US-93 in to Vegas on the way out there, but now I have an extra day to get out there and so time isn't as much of an issue (I'll have roughly two and a half or three days to drive out there.) So I'm trying to decide on a good route to take. I think some mix of interstates and US and state highways would be nice -- it seems like I take I-40 on just about every trip I take. There's nothing in particular I'd like to see in between Memphis and Las Vegas, just looking for a good route to take. I usually like to drive 10-12 hours a day; I occasionally like to stop and look around, but only so often.

    Any suggestions would be welcome. On the way back I'm dropping by Boulder to visit CU Law School.

    Um, What? Any way you slice it, this a 1600 mile trip -- one way to Las Vegas. Using the most direct route, this still requires that you travel at least 500 miles per day. If you stop at least once for fuel and to grab a quick bite -- it will require at least nine hours of constant driving to cover 500 miles a day. There are plenty of side trips we can suggest -- but will you really have time to take them?
