Well, I found 56 Caches my first summer. This year I hope to end up around 230 in total. It took me 18 months to find my first 100. It only took me a month and a half to find the second 100. (two busy months with a lot of big number days) I got really excited to find #100 and it took me 97 to get my first FTF. I'm not even close to the Dan Dubord pace, But I had a great summer/fall caching and I'm looking forward to winter with all of the excitement of getting my wisdom teeth removed. I hate winter!!
And I still plan on getting Vic and Tom to truck throught the woods with me. I think our first time we included Gary and we were scoping out a place to winter camp. BUT someone didn't spend the night in the cold...... :p

I hope so. I'm hooked and it's great fun! But I prefer NOT to get a lot of finds in one day. I like quiet places in the woods, and I like to find the cache, paw through everything in it and then enjoy the scenery. And I like to be able to remember the cache, the place, the experience long after I've found it. Find what you like and concentrate on that. For always there will be cachers with greater and lesser finds than yours.. to paraphase a bit. But finds do get easier as you go along.
