Not in my experience. I traveled all over the playa on Sunday, and I had never
seen the city empty out so fast. Never! It was sort of depressing, but I understood why.
It took me 6 hours to get out last year . . . and that's better than the 8-9 hours it took others.
Woke up Monday in a wasteland, wondered if it was just because burners were trying to beat Exodus because of last year.
I believe so. There was a steady trickle of exiting Burners that one of my friends at Gate said began earlier than he was accustomed to, and a fire under the tail of all
my friends to get out in a very studied manner.
I added to the weirdness by waiting to leave until Tuesday, something I've never done. Exodus was nil, and I'm glad I got to bum around the city on Monday and say goodbye, but I was so
tired by the time I left . . .
