No, your data is stored on your hard drive. Flip it over, pop the case, replace the memory modules and get back on the road. 5 minute job at the most.

2.4GHz 13" rMBP 256gb | 2.5GHz Mac Mini w/ FusionDrive | Mac Pro 3,1 2x 2.8GHz | Dual 2.0GHz PowerMac G5 | 24" ACD | 64GB Verizon iPhone 6 | iPad 32GB Verizon LTE | iPad mini 16GB | Gen 7 Nano | TV1 | TV3

Agreed. Just changed from 4 to 8GB last week in my Mini. Easiest Mac I've ever changed memory on.

OTOH, I hope you are keeping your pics and important data stored someplace. Catastrophic failure could happen any time.
