It also depends on a few other factors -- such as how much terrain you are exploring. How much of it is blank. And what season it is. Exploring in Storm's dangerous. I don't loose expeditions that often, myself but I take a 'stepping out' approach to areas.

Also, exporing around 'names' can generate attitional encounters. I'm tryin to get my hands on those weird an wonderful items that are listed in on the various web pages. I'm told one has to multiply expore a piece of map?

But I play on Hard and I only have a 20% causalty rate with my expeditions.
