One of the most important skills a survivalist can master is the ability to improvise, to use whatever is at hand for what ever task needs to be accomplished.
With some people, doing that comes natural; they just seem to be able to see potential use for just about everything (they also can be annoying to accompany on a Saturday morning roaming yard/garage sales.)
With most, however, the ability to improvise takes practice; they have to get in the mindset that literally everything can be re-purposed for use in a survival situation.
