This is a question that no one but you can possibly answer. It's a risk, and
it's not easily quantifiable. The odds are that you will make the 3,000 mile
trip (and perhaps another 20,000) without any problems. Failures are _very_
rare. But _very_ expensive.
But - you have to change the belt anyway, either before or after the trip.
It's your call.
