First of all - what will increase your chances: leaving the plane (make it to civilization on your own) or remaining nearby (so that search troups will find you)?
What is most important now? (Clue: you might want to be found a.s.a.p., so you need something to signalize your position from far away.)
Correct, the light reflected from the mirror can be seen for many miles in the sunlight. What's next? (Clue: Remember, it gets quite cold at night)
Very good, the coat restricts the air flow to decrease body water evaporation and keeps you warm. What else? (Clue: You'll need something to drink.)
A mirror for being found, a coat for protection and water for survival. What's useful now? (Clue: At night you need that for orientation and also for signaling)
Exactly. Probably you will be staying for more than one day, so a little bit of light in the darkness can be useful. Now what? (Clue: Something that can be seen from far away, some
The parachute makes you visible from far away and also offers you shade in the sun during daylight. What else is useful? (Clue: Now it's time for both a useful tool and a weapon.)
Right, the knife, which is an important tool during your stay and has lots of uses, e.g. cutting a cactus for water. Anything else? (Clue: How else could you gain water?)
Correct, the raincoat protects you from the cold and could be used for collecting water. (Clue: Maybe you need some more protection from wild animals or possible kidnappers.)
The gun provides protection, but could also be dangerous in a group of stressed people. (Clue: Now you could use something to protect your eyes.)
The sunglasses provide protection against the sunlight. (Clue: Maybe members of your group get hurt. Prepare yourselves.)
Fortunately, nobody is injured and you shouldn't move much anyway. (Clue: If there is really no rescue coming, you'll maybe have to make it on your own. How to find directions now?
Yes, never lose hope though. Stay where you are, help is probably already on its way. (Clue: But if you really have to go, take the following item with you.)
Okay, whether you leave or not, what could you use most now, the book, vodka or salt? (Clue: After a couple of days, you will get hungry.)
The human body can survive quite a long time without food. And you shouldn't waste energy by hunting. What now? (Clue: Maybe one of them makes the situation more bearable. ;) )
Right, alcohol only increases your thirst, but could at least help for disinfection. You sure don't need another hint for the last item now...
