Well that is one reason we always have house sitters. Plus having to get the critters in a shelter or someone over to feed them.
We have friends who live in a RV 24/7. Whenever we are going to be gone a period of time, they look forward to house sitting, and seeing Yosemite.
My Son and his wife are leaving on a RC cruise on the 28. In their case they are leaving the house for good. They sold it, and will be in a different one when they return in a month.
That would surprise a thief. Break in only to find an empty home, or new people living there.
