RE: How many caches
I saw some discussion about how many caches a GC-er should put out in relation to the number that he/she finds at the forum at geocaching.com. In the short time I've been caching and checking out this site I've noticed that some GC-ers have many finds, but very few hidden caches. Of course, the debate at geocaching.com doesn't take into the factor of Maine's vast area, but I was wondering if there is an unofficial guideline . . . doesn't quite seem fair to not contribute to the "sport" by just finding and never hiding. On the other hand keeping a cache clean and updated can be quite a task as well when you factor in the geographic factors.
So is there a good ratio? For every 20-25 finds a cache should be set out? 50:1? 100:1? Or should it be totally arbitrary?
