You have posed excellent questions!
From Calgary, the shortest distance according to Maps is ~ 2760 Km (~1725 mi) one way. So say 6000 km both ways including driving around and sidetrips, etc.
At my car's current mileage and age, I definitely feel my car could easily do that trip, and it's actually close to the current mileage (km)/year that my car has been driven. So, in answer to your questions, I do and I think I do, lol...
In the intervening 2 years or so before 2022, I could be sure that the few small issues that may discourage me from driving my SVX that far could easily be remedied, and I could 'bank' some mileage by driving it a little less.... hmmm.
I think it could be a fabulous event, who knows, maybe Subaru will have released her spiritual successor by that time... It really is time for a new 'halo' car... /scratches chin thoughtfully\
I have a cousin in Sioux Falls, SD... it's kinda on the way...
