If you don't store the DVDs off site, they'll burn up too :-).

I've got some pretty old CDRs and DVDRs that were readable the
last time I had any reason to use 'em (heck, I had some 20 - 25
year old floppies I was able to read OK when I decided to copy them
all to CDR a few years ago).

For really critical stuff there are always the online filesystem
folks who let you do backups to their servers over the internet
(but I'd definitely apply strong encryption to any files I was
was gonna send them no matter how much they claim they protect
your security).

Or you could just keep your USB drive in a firesafe except when
doing backups.
