I just ran from my front door, up the stairs, into the master suite, directly to my wife's jewelry (which is NOT where someone would normally look) back down the stairs and to the front door.

35 Seconds.

Unless you know EXACTLY where what you are looking for is, and skip the rest of the house, you ain't getting squat off me.


That's true - like you, I'm not an experienced burglar ;-)

But then, an experienced burglar probably wouldn't take 35 seconds to travel that route.

But you raise a great point - put your valuables in unusual places. If the burglar can't find them quickly, they likely won't take them.
