I'd carry the "O" rings with me.  I know folk have made emergency repairs
with baggies, etc.  However, fuel leaks worry me and I was prone to them,
when I used a Whisperlite.

Also, you may wish you had the tool to work the little wirery thing in the
fuel tube, unless you carry a mini-tool with pliers.  Working it every
couple of days (rather than waiting for the buildup to show up as a problem)
keeps the flame a lot cleaner.
