Boy Scout Sleeping Outdoors For An Entire Year

We like this kid.

Rudy Hummel, a Minnesota Boy Scout, originally though it would be cool to sleep outdoors every night during the summer.

But that wasn’t enough. When summer was over, he wasn’t finished.

Now he’s trying to sleep outdoors every night for an entire year.

“I’ve always liked setting goals and making them, challenging myself,” Rudy told a local newspaper. “Another part is, I really like sunrises.”

In case you’re wondering: Yes, it gets really cold in Minnesota in the winter. Rudy is currently sleeping in a homemade snow shelter.
