Carbon Fiber?

Hello. Just curious, has anyone here ever done a tour of any length with a carbon fiber frame? If so what were you experiences? How much weight were you hauling? Thank you in advance!

I have done about 5 400-500 mile trips on my Trek 5020 with Shimano 105. It is fabulous and comfortable. You don't feel the bumps - everything seems to smooth out. I have not toured self-contained.
