Although it will be a while before your journey--good luck.  I drove my urq
from Denver to Monterey a few years ago ('99).  A great, yet exhausting
drive.  My neck and upper back gets sore after driving the urq for a few
hours (i guess due to no arm rest and constantly correcting the steering
over less than smooth roads-w/ 15x8 Ronals-but not an issue w/ 15x6 or 7).
So bring some ibuprofen or something if your car is similar.  If I were to
take mine on another extended road trip, here's what comes to mind:

Basic tools including allen keys, wrenches, screw drivers, phillips, pliers,
various diameter vacuum hoses
duct tape
elec tape
various size hose clamps
DMM + 3mm
coolant and oil and hyd. fluid-ATF, I believe
small jack
tow strap
fuel pump?

I would definitley give the car a good going over--replacing things that may
be questionable--fuel filter, plugs, clean air filter, cruise control
functional blah blah blah.   That's what comes to mind--some of which is
painfully obvious.  hth.
