Sounds like you'd have a great time doing something like the Mojave Road. It is a roughly 130 mile road that crosses the Mojave desert and typically gets traveled over the course of 3 days. It can be done in 2, even 1, but there are a lot of stops you make to see interesting sights throughout the entire trail.
You might see a few other travelers there, but for the most part, you're away from it all deep in the heart of the desert. The trail varies from light sandy area, to hard packed dirt, from low elevation to high elevation at around 5000 feet (have woken up to snow on the trail before, like lots of it). There are tons of old abandoned cattle ranches, and even a lava rock cave area that is interesting during the day because of the way light enters the cave.
Awesome trail to take, and you camp out each night in some different remote area. I recommend this book since it gives you a detailed guide of the entire trail, including GPS coordinates, history, interesting bits, etc. The Mojave Road Guide - An Adventure Through Time (Mojave Road Guide)

I'm talking spots where your not going to see people for a couple days where you might need a decent offroad vehicle to reach.
