Why has Isaac slept outside for so long? Well, for this Boy Scout, it all started out at his family's cabin when he was 11.

In the summer, Isaac sleeps underneath the stars of northern Minnesota. In the winter, he builds an igloo, that's surprisingly warm inside and spends his nights bundled inside his sleeping bag.
