    If I don't get a deal within the first 5 contacts then that really effects my mood and I might go 1 in 25 contacts. But its like No Longer a user says how long is a piece of string. So many factors, time of day, how many guys are working your patch, how much your charging. Theres no set rules. It can vary as much as what side of the road your on.

    Hope this helps

    Evening or weekends for us, it's hard and horrible and demotivating to do but it works. The answer to how many to do, is how many do you want? You stop when you're satisfied with your lot.
