No, you also have to make sure that

  • your USB (or at least your wallet file) is encrypted with a strong password (otherwise, what happens if you lose your USB or it gets stolen?)

  • you have at least one, preferably multiple remote backups somewhere (otherwise, what happens if your house burns down?) and any backup must be encrypted as well (otherwise, what happens if the remote backup location gets hacked / confiscated by the feds / stolen by a fraudulent employee / etc?)

  • you only insert the USB stick in a computer that is guaranteerd free from malware/virus/spyware/keyloggers/trojans/etc (or at least whenever you actually enter your password to unlock the wallet and confirm any payments)

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

What it sounds like is can make this wallet file; save it on an SD card. Lock it up in my closet.  Then deposit coins to the address associated with the wallet.dat file with out having to take it out of its 'spot' UNLESS i want to pull coins out of my savings?  If so this is awesome! I'm looking forward to setting this up.  Thanks for the post!

Correct. Although keep in mind what I wrote above about encrypting the wallet file (even if it's stored on a USB drive or SD card) and remote backups.

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

i think just keeping Anti-Virus up to date, will save my bitcoins from 12 years old lame hackers. There is no need to be paranoid about wallet, if here isn't really BIG amount of BTC
