Burner Express Bus on Monday (Labor Day after man burn) from Black Rock City to San Francisco

How long did it take?

Yes, I know: Forever. Longer than you think.

The official word on the info page is 8 hours "but leave extra time."

Looking to hear your actual data/experiences with Exodus on the bus to SF, preferably on a Monday.

Thanks!

I have not personally but about 4-5 years ago a very good friend did and it took about 10.5 to get to the drop location. It was on a Monday and the took whatever bus was around 11 AM.

That Monday is a real crap shoot, there's a ton of traffic trying to get home including the Sparks Rib cookoff and many from the Reno/ Truckee/ Tahoe areas. If shit hits the fan anywhere along that route, including Interstate 80 (and it often does) the wait times can get out of control. Just so you know.
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...
