Last week, frustrated at an aggravated ankle problem and limited herping time I went cruising - I write that like someone falling off the wagon, but I again learned my lesson - I estimated that between gas and tolls I spent about 25 dollars, wasted a few hours, and saw all of about 15 Fowler's toads (Bufo fowleri) and a couple leopard frogs (Rana utricularia).

Of course if I had cruised a rat snake (Pantherophis obsoleta - I started a little before dusk) I might have felt some guilty pleasure, but next time I go cruising, I resolve to at least do it closer to home.
