You didn't say where you are coming from in Kansas, but if you MapQuest it from KC, the difference in distance on either I-70 or I-40 is only 20 miles. If you do a MapQuest to show the southern route you'll have to put in Albuquerque or some other town along that route, then add Las Vegas as an additional stop. If you are already somewhere near Colorado then that would be the way to go.

Just because I like to help when I see people having to tweak mapping software to get it to go a proper route, Google Maps actually lets you move your route around based on waypoints. To make a waypoint, all you have to do is click on the highlight line that covers the current route and move it to other roads. You still sometimes have to tweak using several waypoints, but it's a fun way to quickly experiment.

My experience with Google maps is that they have sent me to places that don't exist on highways that don't exist. But I'll give them another shot.

Ouch! I've never had anything that bad happen using Google directions, but definitely found my share of misnomers, especially looking for exits on urban freeways.

Uh, you didn't realize that was a humorous post referencing the well-known line from the movie "The Wizard of Oz"? "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore?"

The Kansas joke is pretty funny

I find people from Kansas get pretty tired of it pretty quickly.

A good friend of mine is from Kansas. We were already drinking and I introduced him to another friend of mine who quickly asked where he was from and did a 'Wizard of Oz' joke.

My Kansas friend, drunk, flicked him off and said 'f you'! The other guy never forgot that.

I know it was a major movie, but I have never seen it before as it did not interest me.

If you grew up in the '80s, you might recall that it's also the opening line in EBN-OZN's new wave hit "AEIOU Sometimes Y".


YouTube - Ebn Ozn - aeiou and sometimes y

Those '80s hair styles crack me up.

I think we have now properly disabused gburke1 of ever wanting to visit Las Vegas. Now why don't we map him out a route to Orlando?
