everything must go!
This is the idea.
Tuesday: Iowa City IA --> Cheyenne WY (742 miles). This will be the long haul. Most of it is through Nebraska, which sucks (ask Jen), but that's the price we pay to get out of the Midwest as rapidly as possible.
Wednesday: Cheyenne WY --> Salt Lake City UT (439 miles), or, if we're feeling bold and the Honda is okay with mountains, maybe Cheyenne WY --> Elko NV (668 miles).
Thursday: Salt Lake City UT --> Reno NV (518 miles) or Elko NV --> Reno NV (290 miles), as the case may be. Lie on parents' air-conditioned couch. Drink Gatorade.
This trip takes place entirely on Interstate 80.
