My last two visits to India I had more schedule flexibility.
My girlfriend will be coming with me this time and unfortunately we'll only have 2 weeks, 14 days available.

We'll be landing in Delhi early in the morning on Saturday, 17th, and take a sleeper train the same night into Jaisalmer. Arriving on the 18th.

I've enjoyed Jaisalmer every time in the past, and she wants to do the camel trek and desert night stay thing. From there our schedule is up in the air till we have to arrive to Varanasi on the 23rd. Pretty much leaving the space between Rajasthan and Varanasi just 5 days.

I had never been to Jodhpur, was hoping to visit by bus, but it's potentially squeezing too much. And i'll have to find a way to get to Varanasi on the 23rd from Rajasthan without taking too much time. We're hoping to not take planes. Any recommendations? For someone used to spending more time in India this scheduling deal is giving me a headache..

But a plane might have to happen. From Varanasi I'll be going to Agra for a quick morning Taj visit, then to Vrindavan to get ready for Holi.
No problem

I think you'll be okay. How long do you plan to stay in Jaisalmer? 18th to the 21st? Leave Jaislamer by bus to Jodhpur in the morning? If you can, stop for a visit in Osian for the Jain and Hindu temples. Spend rest of the 21st in Jodhpur, all of the 22nd and take a flight to Varanasi on the 23rd. I don't see anyway around taking a flight unless you want to waste 20+ hours traveling. You can bump everything up by a day if you want to spend less time in Jaisalmer and/or skip Osian if you want more time in Jodhpur.

Is the camel trek and desert overnight stay the only reason for visiting Jaisalmer?

See if http://www.durag-niwas.com/tharandbi...our/index.html fits the bill.

A costlier option could be http://www.manvar.com/index.php?/camps/
