Survival is all about preparation, but there are some things that you just can't prepare for.
If you get caught in a situation that you were just absolutely ill equipped to handle, the only thing that would save you is your innovation and adaptability under stress.
A few days ago, I posted an article on Facebook that posed a question…
If you were in a survival situation and found a Frisbee, how would you use it to your advantage?
I wanted to test you all and see just how creative you could get with something as simple as a plastic Frisbee…
After I posted the question I sat back and watched the comments roll in and I have to say you did not fail to impress me!
In fact, I wanted to share with you a few of the responses with you.
Here are my favorite uncommon, out of the box uses for a Frisbee…
10. Knock fruits out of trees
9. A weather vane
8. A shooting target
7. A makeshift paddle
6. A plate
5. A plate cover (to keep food warm and the bugs out)
4. Fanning your fire
3. A mirror or reflector when lined with tin foil.
2. “If you catch yourself around feral hippies, you can easily distract them with the frisbee and make a break for it before any Phish starts playing.” (thanks @nick mackinaw, this one made me laugh!)
1. And my personal favorite is from @Mark Baca who uses it as a hunting tool. Read on:
“I use one for quail and pheasant when they tend to be runners rather than flushers. Once they run I throw it over and past them. They see the frisbee or the shadow and think it is a raptor (Hawk owl etc not the dinosaur ….lol) and they stop in place to hide from the “predator” giving me the chance to catch up and try to them and flush them (if hunting) or just shoot them on the ground.( survival situation).”
(Number 2 on the list actually made me laugh out loud!)
Again, survival is all about thinking on your feet and doing what ever is necessary with whatever you have on hand in order to make the best of a bad situation.
Have you ever used an item outside of it's intended purpose to get something done?
