A common issue with the xterra, pathfinder, and frontiers around that time is for the transmission cooler in the radiator to fail. This allows antifreeze to mix with the transmission fluid and ruin the transmission. To prevent this possibility you can have the radiator replaced. If the radiator has already been replaced it’s likely you’re in the clear. If not I would absolutely have it replaced before I took off on a trip. In fact, if it were mine I’d have it replaced immediately.
