Full disclosure: I did not even know Black Friday was a thing until I was in college. I grew up in a family that abhorred standing in line nearly as much as large crowds and aggressive, suburban housewives on the hunt for a new flat-screen. For us, the day after Thanksgiving was dedicated to digesting, eating leftovers, and then digesting some more before going to bed.
But then I went to college on the opposite side of the country, and the threat of a wintertime layover at O'Hare meant I begged my way into my roommate's family festivities for four years. It was with her that I first experienced pre-dawn wake up calls, strategizing shopping schemes, and holding onto a DVD player like it's your mother's set of pearls. I was hooked.
Those first four times I stood in line in sub-freezing temperatures at 4:30 a.m., simultaneously loving the anticipation of great deals and hating my numb feet, I couldn't help but think: I wish I owned an RV. Because it would make it so much better.
