Survival Shelter Workshop

A homemade shelter may be your key to survival we’ll show you how to make one.

Hi friends… Welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall…

There are some outdoor adventures you can experience…rain…or shine. And no one knows this better than the Tennessee State Park Rangers who organize outings and then show up to teach despite the conditions. At Natchez Trace State Park a survival course on shelter building was sold out…. on a cold winter’s day.

Ranger Williams says in a real survival situation make sure you stay where you are so you will be easier to find. When building a shelter stop and think about all the resources around you, sometimes solutions will present themselves. And always tell someone where you are going and be as specific as possible. Many people admit getting lost in areas close to their own home.
