The LHT is a great bike for those purposes, but a cyclocross bike would be better. The LHT is kind of sluggish when it isn't loaded compared to a Surly CrossCheck or Salsa Vaya. I haven't ridden the Fargo, but it seems to me that the fat tires would have the usual pluses and minuses - more cushion but slower acceleration.
