touring on tubeless tires

recently purchased 2017 specialized sequoia and converted 42c sawtooth tires to tubeless. planning a tour from san francisco to la in may and am interested in thoughts on touring on tubeless tires. i like the flat protection, rode 25 miles with large staple through tire without loosing any psi, and reduction in weight. i may be crazy but i feel the bike rolls better on tubeless tires and i can run a bit lower pressure which offers more comfort. the other question is what recommendation on tubeless psi with 250-275lbs on bike (including rider)
