I posted this question on another forum but didn't get any response. Since the question really does apply to pilots, perhaps there would be opinions found here.
I was talking with a buddy and we were discussing using one of those SOL emergency blankets as a superlight tarp to cover meat, gear or anything else should the need arise. I set up one of these cheap blankets like shown in the video below with the guy out points already on so it would be ready to pitch in multiple configurations. The video is kind of long but at about 14:00 he shows it prepped.
Anyway, so here is the question. If you were across a drainage on another mountain or flying over and saw this shelter setup from a distance would it signal to you that there was an emergency that you should check out or report? Part of our discussion was to possibly bring one along on a caribou hunt next year but I would hate for guide or transporter to see it and report an emergency that may not be the case. Just curious as to other's thoughts on this.
