Las Vegas 95 South towards Laughlin. Searchlight is a small town between Las Vegas & Laughlin. Gas up in Searchlight as last gas station for approx 50 miles. From Seachlight I-95, turn right on NIPTON ROAD (across from the McDonalds). Can also follow sign that states NIPTON. Can get bit cold in the winter months on this road but nice relaxing ride. Nipton is an old town with small convenience store. Great photo opportunities. Stay on Nipton Road and will run into I-15. Nipton Road ends at CA/NV stateline on I-15 where your route ends.

OK, if weather isn't too hot. Bring refreshments and add another 40-50 miles to get back home via the I-15 if you don't want to double back.

After you leave Searchlight and turn west towards I-15, past Nipton the road begins a series of roller-coaster drops. It's interesting at 60mph, and... "exciting" at higher speeds.
Just a heads-up.
