The Exodus in Perspective
Imagine moving the entire population of Nevada including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe. That is approximately the same number of people that left Egypt during the Exodus. Exodus 12:37 and Numbers 2:32 state the number at over 600,000 males, 20 years and older. Since this number is merely the older males and excludes the Levites, the total number of persons most likely exceeded two million. According to the U.S. Census Bureau the entire population of Nevada in 2001 was slightly over 2,100,000.

Quail and mana probably wouldn't satisfy the aveage American diet. Counting milk and dairy products, the USDA estimates the average American consumes over 4 pounds of food a day and the EPA states that the average American uses 50 gallons of water a day.
Average American Food Consumption per Year
Meat - 190 Pounds
Dairy Products - 580 Pounds
Fruits and Vegetables - 711 Pounds
Flour and Cereal Products - 200 Pounds
Carbonated Soft Drinks - 53 Gallons
Coffee - 23.5 Gallons

Satisfying the hunger and thirst our wandering Nevadans would be a logistical nightmare. Over 150 Semi-trucks of food and 10,000 tanker trucks of water would be needed each day to keep them satisfied.
