Long trip planned, Feeling anxious and paranoid

So, I'm getting ready to take a 2.5-3000 mile trip up to Washington for some long over due R&R And I'm really feeling excited about it but also I have undertones of paranoia just thinking about it. This will be the first time I've been anywhere long distance with my rig in more then 5 years and that is where the paranoia is coming from. I've made a list of all that I've done to my truck since I've been back to Arizona, Not myself except oil changes, but people I've trusted it with.

-Oil and Filter Change.
-Resealed oil cooler and replaced VC gaskets.
-R & R Solenoid Valve Body due to PO1728 Converter slip and EBP sensor.
-R&R Fuel Pump includes Fuel Pump, Fuel Drain Valve, Fuel Pressure Switch, Lift Pump Hoses, Filter and Cap, Turbo to Intake O-Ring.
-R&R Trans and Rebuild includes TC, Master Overhaul Kit, Bands, Clutches, Steels, Filter Kit, MagTec Trans Pan.
-installed Banks inner cooler.
-New Radiator and hoses.
-installed Bellowed Up Pipes and 4" Diamond Eye Turbo Back /Cat Delete exhaust and 5" Tip. 3" Down Pipe.
-New Starter.
-New Brake Pads, Calipers, New Front Bearings.
-Changed Diff. Fluid
-4 New shocks
-Load Lifter 5000.
-Completely New A/C system.
-6 New A/T BF Goodrich Tires and front Alignment
-New CPS.
-New Power Steering Pump.
-HD Full Size Oil Cooler.
-8 New GP.
-4 UVCH.
-2 VC Gaskets.
-1 Engine Harness to Valve Cover Pigtail.
-8 Swamps Stock Injectors.
-Red Top Power Steering Gear Box.
-2 New Batteries.
-Edge Tuner
-EGT,Trans,Boost Gauges.

Is my paranoia for nothing? Can I relax and enjoy my trip or do you see something I might have missed that's going to put me on the side of the road waiting to be towed?

bring a small tool kit, credit card, cell phone and have a good trip. If you have roadside with your insurance make sure it can cover your truck with a truck bed camper etc.

I am notorious for over preparing and needing nothing but to relax (maybe similar to you?)

Make your preparations and then relax and enjoy your trip! Things can fail on a brand new rig. If something happens you go from there and make the best of it. Have fun!

I've decided to take your advice MSM and just take my R&R and stop worrying about what might happen and just enjoy it. I Will wait until mid August to leave though. If I leave when I had planned to, July 1st, I would have to return August 1st for my 6 month physical so will wait till after that. I don't want to be rushed to return home.
