I didn't realize we were talking about riding in remote off road locations! OBVIOUSLY that changes things, better carry at least three quarts in that case.
As for mixing oil, who cares? Oils are designed to mix with no bad effects.
IF this keeps you up nights, carry all you want, but experience from road riding in the civilized world leads me to recommend against it!

The OP lives in CO, pretty likely he is not doing the TAT to get to Cody!
