    So I haven't lined up for a launch since iPhone 4. That year, I got in line around 4:30am and was like the 30th person in line. I have my eyes on a gold 16gb iPhone 5s.

    Since I live in Holland, I am planning to drive to GR and sleep in my car in the parking lot until it's time. Based on previous year launches, anyone know when the line starts forming?

    Edit: I have confirmed with the Apple Store that their doors will open at 8:00am, and mall doors will open at 6:00am.

    Last year I arrived around 630am. There were quite a few people ahead of me, but I (and everyone around me) got the iPhone model they wanted.

    Did they give away free water/coffee last year as well? I remember them opening the Starbucks next to the store early before.

    I'm gonna need the coffee...

    Yeah, they had free coffee and water. I can't remember if the Starbucks opened early last year.

    Here now! There is no line yet. I'm probably really early.

    I'm just hanging out at the Barnes and Noble until the mall closes, then I'll pitch my chair outside the entrance near Su Alterations/Macy's.

    Last year the line was on the Macy's side. How does it look now?
