This episode of Tennessee Uncharted will inspire you to just keep climbing no matter what life may send your way.
The crew begins at Enterprise South Nature Park, a wildlife refuge managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency that was formerly part of the Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant, to help the TWRA and Tennessee Valley Safari Club International set up for a special event — a Hunt for Warriors. Hunt for Warriors pairs hunters with American servicemen and women, many of whom are recovering from injuries. Erick and his bandmate (and veteran) Donnie Reis get to hang out with these heroes on a hunt and learn why this event is important to both sportsmen and supporters of American troops.
Feeling inspired, Erick and Donnie take on challenges at a new height when they decide to partake in a popular local hobby — hang gliding. And after a few dry runs, they take turns running off a 2,500-foot peak like pros.
The inspiration just keeps coming as the crew travels to Charleston, Tenn., to catch up with Tennessee-native, Mike Crittendon. Mike shares the story of how his life drastically changed 16 years ago when an accident left him a without the use of his legs. The crew learns how he has overcome his physical challenges to enjoy the outdoors in a different way today. His is a true story of a true sportsman.
Having spent so much time with inspirational people who have given so selflessly, Erick wanted to leave Chattanooga with what he has to offer — a musical performance on the stage at Rhythm & Brews.
Overall the episode seeks to inspire folks to never give up and to always find a means of overcoming.
