        I take the dogs to the kennel, put out enough cat food to keep the cats from becoming cannibalistic and on occasion, lock the front door. I do not shut the utilities off.

          I post online my address & how long I will be gone. Then I turn off all the lights, leave the front door unlocked, lay down on the sofa with my 12 ga. & see how many varmits take the bait.

            You have to turn your water heater off if you are gone for more than two weeks. If left on the heater will store water and hydrogen gas from the water. It is flammable.

                  Congratulations on your daughter's wedding. Years ago, I went to Ibiza, Spain with the boys before we got engaged and married to our girlfriends. Everyone who went on the trip has had daughters. I have two. We called it "the Ibiza curse". Of course we now realize that it is not a curse at all. I am dreading the teenage years, though
                  We have concluded that it would be cheaper to purchase our own catering hall for all the sweet 16's and weddings.
                  I always shut the utilities when away. I also leave the lights and TV on if away from the house for more than 30 minutes at night. Crime is on the rise here.

                    On the rare occasions when we leave for more than a day or so I shut the water off and relieve pressure. I turn the water heater to pilot. Turn the heat down or the AC off. We have someone pickup th mail. We leave a light on.

                    How rare you ask? We took a week and went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras while my van was getting painted. It was our first vacation in 4 years. Our last vacation before that was Hawaii, that was our 1st vacation in a decade.

                        Bout as close to vacation I get is sitting on a job waiting for a inspector. But I would at very least turn tank down, and shut off water. Seen tooooooo many accidents happen to just walk away from my house and assume its going to behave
