COLUMBUS, Ind. -- One hundred dedicated chicken lovers waited in line for the opening of a new Chick-fil-A Thursday morning, some for about 24 hours.

The first 100 people in line for the new restaurant received free meals for a year.

Kyle, the No. 9 person in line, got in line at 5:25 Wednesday morning.

"When it started out, the sun came out and it wasn't too bad," he said. "Then the wind picked up and the rain came. Then more wind. It was an exciting night. There were tents getting blown around."

Other than the free food, his motivation for camping out was just to do something different and crazy.

"It's the experience of it," he said. "Something crazy, something stupid. Why not do it while I still can?"
