Big Shout Out To Midland Walkie Talkies

When we were camping the nine-year-old was having the best time with his walkie talkies. I was having fun, too, communicating pseudo-military gibberish on the trail.

The kid squatted down to wash his hands in a stream and one handset slipped off his backpack strap and fell into the water.

The unit was submerged for a good two minutes before we found it and fished it out.

We were all devastated -- it seemed too much to hope for that we could get the handset working again.

I took the handset apart and packed it in rice for a day. After charging all works fine.

Thanks for a fine product Midland!


  1. If there is one survival communication gadget that I will always bring along when going camping with my family of four, is a walkie talkie. The model I and my family used last summer when we were out camping wasn’t effective. I am impressed by the Midland walkie talkies that you have reviewed in your article. I will definitely purchase them. I also learnt some useful tips and tricks on how to choose the best walkie talkie from this url:

  2. Walkie talkies really help during the camping season as it help you to locate your friends during climbing or other adventure that you have.
