I do tend to think that Hard drives (not running) are more rugged then you
might think. Not something you want to test but hey they do come to you in
a box and shippers have no mercy.

Yea I guess that is kinda paranoid but since you can do it and it does not
take much effort then why not. I don't know of anyone that stored photos
offsite before we had digital. People did use bank boxes more though. I
guess we still should but somehow I can't be bothered.
