We first told you about Chris Barksdale and his survival stories here and here. Since our original interviews with Chris, numerous national and international media outlets have been talking to Chris about his stunning survival story.

“I am a freelance producer for Al Roker Productions out of New York,” said Peter Slack on the interview site with Chris last week. Peter and his photographer were in Nelson shooting a segment that will eventually air on The Weather Channel and other possible programs.
