==Flexibility==
Hitchhikers are flexible travelers as - when it comes to rides as , their main concern usually is to get to the destination, so often they wouldndon't mind sitting in the back of a truck, if its it's allowed (for example in [[Missouri]] its allowed to sit in the back of a truck), sitting with their backpacks in their lap, or any other way that might be considered uncomfortable. Ask It's best to ask them if they would be willing to ride in the back if that way, as often a hitchhiker will prefer an uncomfortable ride to no ride at all. If you feel uncomfortable or don't have room to sit or simply leavein the cabin, offering a ride in the back can be a good option. Many hitchhikers consider it a very fun way to ride, and some actually prefer it because of the open view, the wind, etc.
