The Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting is a financial pilgrimage.

Investors from around the world come to Omaha, Nebraska to hear Berkshire CEO Warren Buffett and his vice chairman Charlie Munger take questions from journalists, analysts, and shareholders for seven hours.

And the lines for getting in to see the two speak starts hours before the sun begins to rise in Omaha.

We went to the Berkshire annual meeting this year and got the full shareholder experience.

From the grand arrival of CEOs, to the stampede for seats, to the ice cream breakfast, to the brief moment when you can almost reach out and grab him, it is quite a day.

We’re told to get there by 5:00 am if we want a decent seat, and we pull into the parking lot at 4:58. Right on time.

It’s not even dawn, just regular middle of the night dark when we arrive.

And the line is at least a few thousand deep.
