    If it takes five days....


    Condsider this:
    On Monday, two buses leave Boston, the first leaving in the morning, arriving Sat morning (5 full days on the road).
    When it arrives in Reno, Tuesdays busses, Wed, Thur, Friday buses are on the road. You, leaving early Sat morning, will meet those ten buses on the road. But you don't get to Boston for another 5 days, and you have to meet all the buses leaving Sat till you get to Boston, or 10 more buses.

    I count 20 buses you meet.

    check my thinking.
