I started caching in June of 2006 with only three (count them 3) caches in the immediate area. But I managed to get 50 caches and thought that was a lot. Then in 2007 I found 111 more and thought I was doing great..... This year so far I've found 251 more caches, total to date 412. So maybe as the fever grows, you double your finds each year??? 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.
