Hou about starting with Santa Fe, then west and north through the Great Basin and over the Sierras to San Francisco, head on up to Portland, and drive back down? That should keep you busy for a couple weeks and give you a chance to see some great cities and scenery along the way. Or you could always begin that cross-continent Segway ride. This year is the 100th anniversary of the first automobile crossing the continent.
