Yes it has and I know one professional who thinks so too. With my last 3-hour-safe two numbers had a distance of only 4.

Cost me lots of time. You had trouble with this at times too?

Yep. Good point. And I think many of us just assume that chosen numbers will likely be at least 5 or even 10 numbers away from the last. But we usually stop making this assumption after being bitten a few times, lol. For me, I don't mind taking a few extra readings as I work away from the known gate. ie. I've parked the wheel on found gate and I'm gonna begin exploring the next wheel(s). I'll often take a readings on every inc until I'm 3 or 4 incs away from the gate. Then I'll revert to the normal 2 or 2.5. This only equates to a couple extra readings, versus not spotting a gate close to the last... which is gonna cost ya a lot more time.
