Imagine sleeping outside every single night for a year! That's what one 17-year-old boy scout is trying to pull off.
Rudy Hummel has made it his goal to sleep outdoors every night for an entire year and he's been pulling it off since June.
Speaking from his "bedroom" on "New Day," Hummel says he only started his mission as a test for himself but now he thinks his goal can help others.
Hummel says, "I came up with the idea to do this for a whole year just because I like to challenge myself, but now it means more than that. I've got a couple organizations picked up that I want to try and collect money for, to donate to..trying to turn this into a fundraiser."
Last night, the wind chill made it feel like -32 degrees in Hummel's hometown of Hermantown, Minnesota but the teenager says he's keeping "pretty dang warm."
He says he stays warm by avoiding cotton and wearing fleece material,using many layers of blankets and sleeping bags and wearing many layers and three pairs of wool socks to bed.
He adds: "I'm about as warm as I would be inside, I think. But I haven't slept inside in so long that maybe that' s not true."
