Natalie Faunce and Mike Wilson with “Daytime Blue Ridge” recently got a taste of the outdoor life with Reggie Bennett of Mountain Shepherd Wilderness Survival School.

In a segment aired on Roanoke, Va. NBC affiliate WSLS, “Natalie and Mike Survive the Wild,” the pair learned two of the seven priorities of survival — shelter craft and fire craft.

Reggie also helped dispel Natalie’s and Mike’s fears and taught them that a positive mental attitude is the most important tool in anyone’s survival toolkit.

“If all it takes is optimism, I’m in great shape,” Mike said.

“That’s all you need. A great will to survive,” Reggie replied.
