Would You Sleep Outdoors To Escape The Heat?

Last weekend, as I was walking the dog by a neighbor's house in the early morning hours, I noticed that the residents were sleeping in the back yard. Later that day I asked if they'd had a camping night for their kids and they explained that instead they had decided to sleep outside to escape the heat in the house and take advantage of the breeze outdoors. Would you sleep outdoors to escape the heat?

If you have a hammock you have an easy way to sleep outdoors when it's hot, but if you don't have an obvious place on your deck or in your backyard what would you do?

My neighbor suggested pulling out your air mattress, getting some mosquito netting to drape from a nearby tree and to get ready for an early morning when the sun comes up. He also mentioned that they had tried using a tent in the past but since they were out there for the breeze the tent wasn't the best solution.

This seems like a great way to get outdoors, escape the heat and have a fun adventure with your family.

Will you try it out?
