    Have you done the math: How far is it from your current position in Kentucky to Las Vegas (mileage). How many miles to the gallon does your Vehicle get? What is the expect average price per-gallon? Total?.... Is it less then it would be to fly?

        I can't beleive it! I thought I was the only person from Ky in this forum. WOW! Azrael, I'm in the Shelbyville area. I won't make it to DC 12, but maybe next year?
        If you make it this year, you should take some Ky moonshine, or atleast some Woodford Reserve, for astcell. Ya gotta show that Kentucky hospitality. :D

          dude...I live in Shelbyville, who is this? lol...and yes, I have figured up the math and it is MUCH cheaper to drive, and we get to see some scenery.

                  I think its probably gonna take DAYS to make the trip in a car from here. My sister in-law drove from Malibu to Shelbyville...took her a week!

                    Well, it all depends on the driver and the route - I'm going to have to go a similar distance (SW Ohio, thankfully I get to fly back). If you dont take the right route, it will take a long time. Depending on who you go with, and if you really want to push it, you could make it in 2 days from Kentucky, 3 days if you want to relax a bit more. Any more east, and it'd be 3 days guaranteed even if you just rotate drivers in/out all the time. If anything, I'd pick flying if you can - just tires one out after you dont care what's outside, but what's at Vegas(which is about the time you would hit Texas/New Mexico, or Utah depending on route). After that, you'll start to agree on why/how they pick people who'll get along together well in space when you've hit the magic 2000/2500/3000 mile mark and people in your vehicle just go plain nuts(insane, bonkers, lack of any mental comprehension, a few marbles missing from your head, you get the idea) before Defcon.

                      well we are nuts, bonkers, etc. before we enter the car, so it will be okay. and the route we have is 28 hours of driving at 60 mph, so we should be able to work with that, however as of right now, I am the only driver, so it will probably take 2-3 days, because I will want to sleep and enjoy the scenery. :)

                        Im in missouri, i assume youre going to come up 55 and head west on 70?

                        If you have room i may need a ride. i can be anywhere in missouri for pickup. i can drive. actually used to drive the i-70 stretch from kansas to stlouis all the time.

                        let me know what you think

                              due to lack of funding for Tony, I don't think we are going to be able to go this year after all, I am going to make it a point to go next year though, even if I have to drive all that way myself.
