Describe your most embarrassing wilderness experience.
I was on a first date and we went for a hike. As we were walking up the trail, a giant fly flew into my mouth and I swallowed it. Because I was so startled, I accidentally farted right next to the person I was on the date with. I was so embarrassed! But, luckily, we both laughed it off:)

My favorite article of clothing is my yellow headband that I wear almost every day.
