'Snore Outdoors' Teen Finishes 1-Year Run, Looks Forward to Night Indoors

A Hermantown teenager woke up in the great outdoors for the last time on Saturday, after a year of sleeping outside.

Seventeen-year-old Rudy Hummel spent a full year sleeping outside. His "snore outdoors" project started as just a personal challenge, but in December of 2013 he decided to use it to help people. He raised $5,000 total for Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory and Habitat for Humanity.

On Saturday, Hummel said transitioning out of the challenge would be strange.

"I really don't think it'll sink in until tonight when I'm trying to sleep in my own bed," he said. "It'll either be really blissful or really, really uncomfortable. Most likely some combination thereof. I'm not really sure what it's going to be like."
