Well... I pulled the trigger on having ADT and Ring today. I asked my neighbor to keep and eye on my house while I was out of town (The 19th is the last time I saw my wife alive and she died on the 23rd of July.) I've decided that it's best to be around friends on the anniversary of her passing. I got a first class flight to Miami for $300, and since I've never flown first class I said "why not?" I have a gig down there also, but I keep having this worried feeling in the back of my mind about leaving my gear unprotected. I have insurance, but as you guys know, an instrument is a personal relationship I REALLY love the sound of my basses and replacing them isn't really the point. I don't want to lose them. It took awhile to find the basses that feel like my second skin ya know? I didn't want to get the technological stuff that allows you to watch your s*** while you're gone, but I feel better knowing that I will be alerted if anything moves while I'm gone. How do you folks deal with traveling and leaving your gear behind? I live alone, so this is the only option for me it seems. My neighbor gave me the vibe of "why don't you buy something? I really don't want the responsibility of even looking out for you..." It seems that it's easier to pay for s*** that watches your house than to trust your neighbors to lend an eyeball these days... Any opinions could be enlightening... Cheers, D.
