iPhone 6 Quest: Day 9

Day 9

Another slow day. Last night Jonah stayed up until 3am trying to preorder the iPhone online, but he couldn’t. The Apple Store website was completely saturated and even crashed down for a couple of hours. When it came back up, Jonah could only find the iPhones available for delivery after the end of September… useless.

The days are passing by so fast that I cannot even finish all my daily tasks until after 6pm. It’s good, I guess, the fact that September 19th will come faster, that is; however, sometimes I feel like… time is consuming us.

When we first heard of this task we were very excited to come and up to now we still are, but every single day that passes we become more and more tired. We are exhausted. But anyways, we won’t give up. Only one week to go.

The bright side of this trip is that we are achieving our objective. Today, there were several people from Spain and from France that came and told us: “You are the guys from the news, we saw you on the news.” The Spanish couple even told me: “You are the guy from the RAVPower’s Youtube channel, right?”. We are spreading RAVPower to the world. This means that all our efforts are worth it.

Mrs. Nazan Isik and the RAVPower Team!

Today we received the visit of a very nice lady from Turkey, Mrs. Nazan Isik, who comes every single day to visit us and bring us goodies and food. Today we got wafers! She is a lovely person, an awesome writer, and a very good photographer. She says she considers herself part of the RAVPower team and… she really is! 🙂

Today we also received a new addition to our camping gear… the all new RAVPower Solar Charger! You’ll be able to get one of these online from our amazon store this November. We will now be able to harvest all the energy we need directly from the sun!

Weather Report: 80% rain for tomorrow morning, 8am.

Health Report: same old, same old… Jonah is healthy and I have a sore throat.

Good night everyone!

Cheers!

iPhone 6 Quest: Day 4

Day 4

Today has been a very busy Sunday… but we can’t complain at all. It’s impressive how many people stop to talk to us and think that we are joking when we say we still have 12 days to go before the release of the iPhone 6.

Something else that people cannot understand is how we manage to survive. Well… here is the first part of our iPhone 6 Quest FAQs to help you guys understand our adventure a bit better.

Q. Where do you go to the restroom?
A. Apple store. They have been nice enough to let us go numbers 1&2 at their toilets. We also brush our teeth and wash our face every morning there.

Q. Where do you shower?
A. We always go to the Y.M.C.A. (can’t help to sing the song in my head everytime I go there) over at 63rd St. It’s not very far and for only $100/month, we can do some excercise and take a warm shower… plus we can walk across Central Park on the way there.

Q. What do you eat?
A. Thankfully, we have many choices around us that go from the expensive but delicious food court over at the Plaza Hotel to the tasty and “cheap” NY street food (picture below).

Q. Can you leave your seat?
A. We’ve become very close with the rest of the people in line. Everyone respects each other’s place; therefore, if we need to leave our seats to go to the toilet, everyone will take care of your stuff and place. To go shower, well, that’s another story.

Q. Where do you sleep?
A. Here, on the street, of course.
Q. No, seriously?
A. SERIOUSLY, HERE ON THE STREET!
Q. You for real?
A. …

Up to now, this experience has been extraodinary. Every single day something new and exciting happens. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

If you have any other questions for us, leave them in the comments section and we’ll include them in the part 2 of the iPhone 6 Quest FAQs.

Time to say good night!

Cheers!
