When traveling you can often tell the fossickers doing it purely for profit as they are most likely grumpy when you chat with them.

Yes - it definitely affects their mindset and not necessarily in a positive way when you MUST find x number of cutters or the day has been wasted.

More fun to treat it as a day out and anything you find is a bonus.
