will this tire last 2000 more miles?

I'm in the middle of a road trip. I've got about 2000 miles, maybe a little less, until I get home. right now the tire has about 6800 miles on it. I'm wondering if you guys think the tire will last unt I get home or if I should go ahead and replace it while on the road.

Tire wear

I agree, it looks good to go. If concerned further on, remember the penny trick. Put the penny in the grooves with Lincoln's head facing in. As long as part of the head is covered, you have adequate tread.
