Sounds like you know a lot more than me. You should do well if you can get a few extra days. Luck and fun.

I have ran tubes in tubeless tires on a variety of bikes.

I tend to run my TKC 80s at higher PSI which helps a lot on the road in terms of longevity. The front can def go a lot father than the rear so that was why I was considering the Heidenuas, but if I take a spare set of TKCs I should be just fine (that and have a few locations that have them in stock as well.

I definitely like the TKCs so in the interest traversing any given terrain (safely) they may just stay on.
