    Default Hint: Add hours!

    Looks like a pretty good route -- but there is one serious flaw... I don't think any of the time intervals are reasonable or even possible. However, if you add 1-2 hours for every leg -- I think it will work out. I really would like to meet the driver than can drive from LA to Las Vegas in 4.2 hours! Of course, it matters where in LA is the starting point, but if you were coming from the beach (Santa Monica) it would be six hours to reach LV. And the leg from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon -- 6.5 hours would be pushing it! On the east coast, you would need a police escort to get from Philadelphia to Washington DC in under three hours with the normal traffic delays.

    So, best advice -- use these times as fanciful goals and see what happens.

    Have fun.
