[CQ-Contest] Making the most of 40M SSB

A newbie question:
My station is of the 3rd tier variety (euphemism for little pistol). I run
100 watts into a good
wire antenna and being in the Pacific NW, I can ususally put a decent signal
into JA on 40M.
In past SSB contests I've typically viewed 40M as an opportunity to grab a
few mults. With
10M all but gone this year I'm looking to maximize my use of that band.
A question for the veterans,,, How can I make better use of 40M on SSB?
A question for DX stations,,, Do you bother S&Ping for US stations above
7150? Do you
find many US stations QSX below 7100?
Thanks in advance for the insight.
