Were you wanting the drive to be scenic or the quickest?

If you're in the San Diego area, just head up I15 towards Las Vegas. Once you pass Vegas, the miles are fast and easy. Traffic is much lighter and speed limits get up to 80. The mountains in Colorado will slow you down. Once you get through Denver, traffic is lighter and the miles become fast and easy again. I've driven Vegas to central Nebraska in one stretch before. It's a pretty easy trip.
