Gear Talk / Touring Bike

Here is my dilemma. I have been cycling for a number of years. The bike I use for light touring is a mountain bike with many modifications. (please visit my cycling blog at to view my Performance MT201)
I am getting serious about the touring end of cycling and have planned a couple of adventures. My price range is somewhere around $1500. The bikes that I have been looking at are the Trek 520,  Specialized, Fuji touring and the one I am leaning toward, the Surly Long Haul Trucker. Im really digging on the Surly but am looking for some expertise in this area. The trips I am planning are trail and some pavement. They are two to three day trips. Any help would be great. Thanks Greg
