What have they been?

This is a great read - https://www.wired.com/story/i-forgot-my-pin-an-epic-tale-of-losing-dollar30000-in-bitcoin/

TLDR - the guy lost his seed and pin and had to wait for a Trezor vulnerability to be exposed and a tame coding genius to exploit it to save his BTC.

Have you found yourself in a similar situation where your carefully thought through plan to secure your funds bit you on the arse?

Fortunately, I have my seed in multiple different safe locations, so losing my seed doesn't really seem like a possibility to me.  Especially since I never carry it around with me.

Considering that most thieves don't have a clue what a TREZOR is, never mind how to steal the coins, I'd prefer having the information to take the coins relatively easy to find rather than it being somewhere that I'm likely to forget about and then lose access to my coins altogether.

I'll stay cocky until ten years or so from now when something goes wrong to put me back in my place.
