    leaving las vegas

    well, not today, but I'll be driving LV to East Bay area midweek sometime during the month via Barstow and Bakersfield.
    Any suggestions as to what time of day is best to start? Google Maps is little help, estimating between 7:50 to 10 hours no matter what starting time I put in. I know you have talked about how brutal the drive is LV to LA. Any tips?

    Traffic is fine except on Sunday. Take I-15 south to Hwy 58 west. If traffic is backed up in Barstow, take Old Hwy 58 to avoid it. When you to get to Bakersfield, take Hwy 99 north to 7th Standard Road west. This will save you 15 minutes. 7th Standard will take you to I-5 north, then take I-580 west to Oakland.

    Thanks! I will definitely try those routes.
