June 2022: Frances + Primitivo
I'm 2 days into the meseta and very much liking it! Sadly, I will need to skip ahead at some point to make it to Leon by Friday for a friend's wedding. Hence the question.

my first thought too ;- )
...the ALSA bus from Burgos to Leon makes several stops. I used it many years ago, and it had stops at most of the major towns between Burgos and Leon, notably Carrion, Fromista, & Sahagun. Check ALSA's schedule for that route. Buen Camino.

Future Camino Frances (2022)
Why do so many people want to skip the Meseta? I never understood this. I understand time restraints but....two separate times we've gone just to walk the Meseta. Only place I've ever been where you could walk and hear nothing.
Read the thread - they need to skip ahead to attend a wedding.

Not true! I definitely heard myself pining for a cup of coffee! Seriously, though, we thought the Meseta was one of highlights of the Frances as well. I'm sure skotzko will return for this leg at some future time.

This wasn't the case in May. Walking the Meseta was akin to walking from Sarria. So many people and so much noise. I loved the Meseta in 2019 - one of my favourite sections. This time I couldn't wait for it to be over.

I live in Minnesota - if anyone has asked if I wanted to walk across South Dakota this summer, I'd have run screaming. And then I walked the Meseta ( I confess to finding a reason to jump about 30k) I should add that I am walking the Portuguese this fall - and, since the Portugese is a little short, I may go back to pick up that 30k at the end - as well as St. Jean to Pamploma ( my original starting point) go figure....

Yes....not sure if I could manage that section during the summer months but, certainly, it was pretty nice in November last year.

Just get to the ticket office early. The bus has thru passengers and 5he time I tried to catch it, seats were limited and there was a rush for them.
