    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- Spacewalking astronauts launched a tiny Peruvian research satellite Monday, setting it loose on a mission to observe Earth. Russian Oleg Artemiev cast the 4-inch box off with his gloved right hand as the International Space Station sailed 260 miles above the cloud-flecked planet. The nanosatellite gently tumbled as it cleared the vicinity of the orbiting complex, precisely as planned. "One, two, three," someone called out in Russian as Artemiev let go of the sate...

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -

It is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and some bargain hunters already are staking out their territory to be the first in line when stores open their doors for Black Friday.

The early bird gets the worm, and for the fourth year in a row, that bird is Pat Davis. He and his nephew, Jorden Shelton, have made a tradition of camping out for Black Friday's super savings at the Best Buy store in Fredericksburg, Va.

On the list this year for them are laptops, big-screen TVs, video games and videos.

15-year-old Jorden has his priorities straight on Tuesday. He spent the night in their portable man cave, but then left his uncle to hold down the fort while he went to school. He may take some ribbing friends at James Monroe High School.

"They might come over and see me every now and then," said Jorden. "But most of them just called me crazy."

But Jorden says he will get the last laugh when he walks away with the Wii U.

"It's very comforting to know that we've got such loyal customers that are excited as we are to offer all the great deals," said Best Buy Store Manager Mike Setti.

Best Buy opens at midnight on Friday but Setti says around 10 p.m., those in line can grab vouchers for the hot doorbuster items.

"With the big items being ticketed, everybody knows which line they need to go into, they know they are going to get their product because they have a ticket in hand, and when the doors open, everybody's excited," said Setti.

There is currently a preview available online, but when the official ad is released on Thanksgiving Day, even more savings will be revealed.

Jorden and Pat say it is well worth spending the holiday out in the cold. Over the past four years, they estimate they have saved over $8,000.

As for the turkey, Jorden says, "My mom, after they eat Thanksgiving, is bringing me and my uncle our own."

"He enjoys it," says Pat. "He's been out here with me the last four years. His brother was doing it before him."

Best Buy says last year, there were a total of 500 people in line before the doors opened for Black Friday.
