Years ago two of us flew down to Loudon to watch some races in his 172 Cessna. Just room for 2 and 5lbs of luggage max. Or so it seemed.
We stopped in Burlington to take in the night scene (college town) and for whatever reason (can't remember) decided to spend the night there. We ended up turning in late that night and sleeping at the end of the runway. It sloped down at a shallow 60 deg or so. We just lay down and went to sleep. Next morning we woke up to the thunder of a 707 lifting off about 200ft over our heads as it passed.
Nobody knew we were out there.
