Since Brown Dog shared his road trip map I figured I'd post mine as well. My friend and I are driving out to Oregon Trail Rally in April and we've decided to take the scenic route. Planning on taking about ten days each way and hitting some national parks and other sights during the trip. Can't wait!
As a bonus, this will be the ultimate test of the XT. Not only in terms of it handling that many miles without any problems (which it should be able to do), but cargo space, comfort, etc. We'll basically be living in it for close to a month.
