Rural Route Hitchhiker

Cara Jennings is a rural carrier associate in Brookline, MO.

Halfway through her 43-mile rural route, she stopped to get gas and she noticed a tree frog, resting on one of the shelves of her car's grill.

"I thought about letting him out in a field, but he seemed pretty content."

So, she left him alone. Jennings was surprised when she finished her route. 

"He was still in that same position when I returned home," she said.

Sometime during the night, he decided he didn't want another day of sightseeing and found a safer home, presumably under a rock or in a tree.

If MO is anything like Nebraska, it was probably having a feast on all the grasshoppers the carriers hit each day!
