I "think" I've got mirror and whistle in my pack. They're so small and seldom used (i.e. never) they tend to get lost.
I agree that "communication with your rescuer" is important. Heck, be nice to send him a text saying "I'm over here, to your left". I understand survival needs, the space blanket, first aid supplies, extra food.What I was trying to hit on more, is things that you can carry that will help the rescuers find you. In "Death and Rescue In Big Bend" there are several cases where you have live victims lost or trapped and you have rescuers out searching. What can you do to increase the odds that they will find you. Time can be important. The William Egger story details how close rescue crews were to him, but had not spotted him. A simple mirror, flare, strobe light maybe.
