    You know what would be awesome would be to build a platform in one of our backyard trees and sleep up there once in a while. That would be great.
    Why don't you do it? Life is short and you know you love to sleep outside. In a tree would be even better I think.

    My mother grew up sleeping on a sleeping porch in Maryland in the 1940s. It had originally become a custom to prevent tuberculosis. She liked it so much that they had a murphy bed installed on a screened porch in the 1970s. But it takes some getting used to--the outdoors is noisy.

    Funny to find this post as I've been thinking the same thing. I have been "craving" sleeping outside.

    We live part of each week in a house we built on an old farm. There, we have a small, captive balcony and I plan to sleep on it. The only reason I haven't done so yet is my husband begs me to wait until we have the balusters installed. He has a good point. That first step is a lu lu.

    I'm anxious to do it though and am glad he cares!

    Just do it!

    I like cold weather and wear a kilt year round. I also camp year round.

    I lost 40 lbs last summer fall and then fell off the Primal wagon. Climbed back on today and to celebrate I head for the woods tomorrow night to hang in my hammock. The low will be 25 degrees. - George

    I love camping - I hate having to find the loo at 2am!

    I sleep in my nice comfy bed but I cannot sleep withou the window open no matter how cold and it has been quite cold recently. The only horror is getting out of my warm pit into a cold bedroom

    Yup. At the same time I would like to lay in my quictent hammock in the backyard. Listen to the old music and sway into dream under the stary sky. That's unforgetable. I love my hammock. I love the summer nights.
