Hi, Scott!

Re putting it in a closet and forgetting about it for five years, one
thing to note is that according to

OpenBSD's stable branch is supported for one year, so if you were
tracking that, you'd have to upgrade every year.

NetBSD's stable branch is supported for longer than one year based on

but they don't say exactly how long.  The trend to me looks like
at least three years.  They currently support their 8 and 9 stable
branches which were released on July 17, 2018, and February 14, 2020,

FreeBSD's stable branch is supported for five years according to

And of course there are other BSDs that I haven't listed.
