My friend and I live in central Illinois and we have decided to go to Las Vegas for Christmas this year. Both of us have parents still alive in Arizona but we decided to hit Las Vegas first. We are in our late forties and in good overall health. We will be leaving Springfield on the 23rd and hope to arrive in Vegas on the 25th. His wife will be coming with us so she will do some of the driving, however I'm not married so it will just be the three of us. We know it will be 1600 to 1700 miles in under two full days. We are not professional drivers of course and are at the mercy of winter storms, but can we pull this off? Or do we add a day and make short sightseeing stops along the way? Thank you for any help!
