    Just a couple questions i was thinking about today.

    1. Do these people camping out literrally stay there all day and night for days?
    2. how do they eat/get food?
    3. where do they get power for their gadgets?
    4. what happens when they go to the bathroom, possible to lose their spot or get stuff stolen?
    5. are they crazy?!

    I waited last year at the Apple Store Corker Park in Westlake, OH. Super rich area so security/safety isn't an issue. I didn't bring a chair with me but after you've waited long enough around the same people they will let you back in line if you have to go the bathroom. As for power? Bring a book, i saw lots with iPad.

    The majority of people who camp out only do it for less than 12 hours. I've done a few Apple campouts, and the bulk of people show up after midnight or early hours of the morning. I typically get there around 5 or 6 pm the night before.

    Are there typically lines when you get there at that time? I'm thinking about heading over at midnight; should I be expecting a decent line?

    When I get there by 6pm, I am usually in the first 10 people in line. Sometimes 15.
