You can make a tarp shelter. This is good weather for it. Do like a lean-to type setup. Its too cold for mosquitos so you get to enjoy nature without slathering on deet or being attacked by bugs. Brand new tarps are cheaper than tents and they are more waterproof. I spent many a night camping out in the rain and only got wet a couple times. Grab some rope a tarp and a buddy, if you get too cold, the next day take it down and set up a different design. (girls either really enjoy camping or will whine the whole time, its a hit and miss)

Get you a good sleeping bag. When I was in High School, I slept out probably 3 times a week, year 'round. Something about the outside air really does a person good.

Oh. Rain's no good. The cold never bothered me (down to about 4 farenheit), but the rain sent me indoors quickly.

Yeah the cold isn't to bad especially if you've got a good sleeping bag but the rain will get you awake pretty darn quick unless you have a tent

=D Thanks. Right after I made the comment I went looking to find one so I could post a link, but I think it all just depends on his size preference and budget.

If anything, he could get one of those collapsable cylindrical tube things- a clear one of course. Sleeping bag inside of it. Although depending on the material and temperature outside when it's raining, it may fog up from the inside......

Yeah they do have a lot and I really do hate when it fogs up on the inside because then the condinsation drips down and you might as well be out in the rain

In Texas, my friends and I would grab a bunch of blankets and sleep on the trampoline when it was in the 30s-50s.
