In addition, if you are NOT a professional driving and used to the humdrum of driving 10-12 hours a day, 5-6 days is probably the shortest period of time for a 3000+ drive.

If you just want to save money cheapest option is to fly (under $500).as the cost of car rental,insurance ,gas,motels,3 meals a day will far outpace the cost of a plane ticket.

It took ten days but could have been faster if we'd strained ourselves. We took 70 and dodged big trucks the whole way. We went thru SLC and Reno. Good trip!
