A foley catheter.
This guy deserves a prize for that post. Funny.

If I was doing this I would camp out with my buddies, with disguised alcohol, cards, and whatever else. Would be a good time.

Unfortunately we all have to work/have other commitments.

I am getting the iphone 6 friday. My 6+ is to be delivered a week or two after...so I am sure the 6 will hold me over until I get a six plus.

Damn, you guys are going on a hiking trip lol. I was only planning on bringing a chair, my phone fully charged (hoping it'll last the night) and a extra jacket. I don't want to be carrying so much stuff. I should be fine sitting on my butt for eight hours.

A phone, iPad, and laptop? How long do you plan to be out there?

G19 here as well. Im going to only bring my phone. Don't want to show off too much. Better be careful if it is only a couple people with ya.

Be very aware of your surroundings tonight
You mean tomorrow night right?

How about a grenade? Pull the pin and demand to be at the front of the line. Works every time, most of the time, right?

I'm looking for an iPhone 6 Plus, so at least 12 hours. I'll be checking on the line length the night before.

I always have my phone on me. And multiple devices because they'll run out of battery.

So you have just one or two seasons left, or the max GB model.

Because you say you're buying extra data for phone but don't mention anything for your ipad.

I don't see a mention of extra mags ... or bubblegum.

I've never done an all nighter.. With the shortages of the 6+.. I plan on driving to two nearby AT&T stores and check if I can be the first in line.. If not, I'll just try the Apple Store. But I just wonder by staying in line for hours.. Will there even be any 6+ available?

Risk you're willing to take, some stores won't know the Plus supplies until the morning of. You can be first in line and tell you there's none.

This is shaping out to be similar to the gold iPhone last year. Some AT&T stores did not get any gold and the largest Apple sore here in Philly only had about 3-4 gold iPhones total!

My pack:

Battery backup
iPhone 5S
Backpack loaded with food and water
Light jacket in case it gets chilly

I'm in the same boat. I'm willing to head over there at 3AM and join the nerd line.. but I'd REALLY prefer to know supplies in advance. Sitting there 5 hours and not getting a Plus will only add more rage to my preorder anger level.

It'd be nice if Apple released such information so people weren't just guessing, but I'm sure Apple wants super long lines for the evening news. Free PR.
