The Langley family loves camping in nature.

However, until 12:01 Friday morning, you can find them at the front of the line at Best Buy.

Melody Langley said, "We jokingly call this Occupy Best Buy, only peacefully and we get stuff in the end."

These folks are in it to win it.

They're prepared with food, an air mattress and even an RV camper is parked in the lot.

They're positioned to get the best Black Friday has to offer.

Walter Langley said, "I can get a $200 TV that would be $500 normally so for $300 I'll wait in line."

They're a well oiled machine.

They have organized shifts that work around their work schedules, and execute a punctual changing of the guard.

They snagged their spot at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon.

"We do it for the fun of it," said Walter. "I've sat in line before and not bought anything with I got in the store."

The Langleys have been making quick friends with Best Buy shoppers.

They know some would call them crazy, but the Langleys say this is a Thanksgiving tradition worth keeping.

"We love to go out on Black Friday and go people watching anyway, " said Melody. "That's the only day that people just throw things in buggies that they don't need, like 30 toasters for $5. Who needs that?"
