Leveling Blocks Question

How many bags/stacks of leveling blocks do you guys bring with you? I just got my 11.5"x11.5" Hosspads in to put under my Big Foot levelers. I know I should bring some lego blocks in case I'm on a site that needs leveling that exceeds the throw of my jacks. I'm uncertain if I should be packing 2 bags of Lynx, or maybe 3? 3 seems like a lot - but than again prior to my Jayco I drove around with 6 bags since I had no levelers at all.

What do you guys bring with you?

I carry one bag of Lego and 8 pieces of 10"x10"x1.5" lumber with bevelled edges. I like the bigger, wider pieces to drive up on.

The bag of 10 Lynx Levers has always proven adequate (6 years).

We have two bags. One is primarily used to put under the stabilizers while the other is used in case we need to level the trailer.

I currently have 3 bags of Legos. I use about 3 or 4 on the tongue jack. I've never needed more than 3 bags. Although, I passed a few sites last week that people had about 4 high on one side. I try not to stack that high. But, you will need a bunch if you own a tandem axle TT due to multi-level stacking or both wheels. Can't imagine doing it with a class C.

I've used 5 bags once on my older 'C'. The front driver's side tire was way off/low.

I carry nothing but the Lego style blocks. I became sick of hauling around lumber. 2 bags worth (20 blocks) has been all that is needed. However, I'm going to get a third bag because it has been tight a couple of times. They are cheap and don't take up much room.

So far, 2 bags of Lunx blocks have been all I've needed. However, I don't use them under the tongue; as I have one of these... http://www.amazon.com/Valterra-A10-0.../dp/B000BGHVSM

By the amount of Travel Trailer folks I'm getting responses from, maybe the motorhome folks don't really carry much if any.
