Walkie-talkies are a great thing to use when you are on a run, walk or hike and someone else is somewhere else, and you want to get in touch with them.

I tested the Motorola Talkabout two-way radios and thought they were great. Can you believe that walkie-talkies have a range of up to 16 miles? Well, they do.

I think these are great for camping or other adventures, especially in places where you might not get cellphone service.
