    Maybe for tickets to a show, concert or sporting event, to get a jump on the early morning sales on Black Friday, or to be the one of the first to purchase the latest and greatest advancement in technology.

    Kinda like the folks who camped out overnight outside their local Apple Stores waiting to purchase the new iPhone 4.

    :cuckoo:

    Tech addicts?
    Oh yeah.

    I used to wait overnight for Opening Day Tickets for the NY Mets. Thats before they went to a lottery system for single game tickets and limited you to 4 per person.

    I used to be able to get 16 tickets for opening day. Didnt scalp a one.

    Got on line around 2 AM or so for 8 AM ticket sales. Was probably #250 on line or so.

    If I got word that Charles Krauthammer was to get his own website up and running, with message boards and all the political bells and whistles .... I would camp out overnight in the freezing rain and blowing snow to be one of the first to sign up for a membership.

    I lived in a tent in Patagonia for 4 months. Does that count ?
    As far as " camping out" for tickets or some newly released gadget, I'll leave that to the brainwashed assholes who infect 90% of the planet.

    Good to know I'd have a friend over there! Virtually speaking of course.

    I love Led Zeppelin! Not enough to sleep outside all night waiting to purchase tickets. And since I can't go back in time, there's no chance of seeing them in concert.

    Was the tent on a sidewalk or in a parking lot? If not, no. It doesn't count. But the rest of your post was well put and speaks volumes.
