Ok, here goes....I bought a baby monitor (a real nice one) for when I stay over night at the GF's house or somewhere where I dont trust the area. It is small enough that when I park it I stick the reciever In a (hidden spot) and I bring the parent unit inside with me lol. I feel like im crazy for doing this and my friends think Im nuts. Its a 1.3ghz so the reception is crystal clear and the range is supposed to be 1500 feet but I haven't need to go that far. I will let you know if one day I have to get out of bed and do some damage! Am I overboard or not?
