Upgrade 2.1.2 to 3.1 PLAN

Just wanted to throw my plan out there for upgrade.  Allow smarter folks to tell me where I will run into trouble.  I have a 2.1.2 site on a rented server.  I have a 2.1.2 development site using Access on my local machine.  I have recently installed and configured SQL Server 2000 locally and a DNN 3.1 local website which works fine.  I also have custom modules I've written (poorly but they work) and many third party modules on my server side production site.  My plan to upgrade the server site is:

1.  Update my custom modules to work with DNN3 (by testing them on my local DNN3 site)
2.  Figure out which 3rd party modules have DNN3 support and which don't
   - install the DNN3 supported modules to my local DNN3 site
   - copy server content (cut and paste) from the server modules to the local DNN3 modules
  - export the module content via the the new DNN3 feature with intent of iporting into the module on the server side after upgrade
3.  Backup my Server Side web.config, database, and desktop modules folder
4.  Delete my Server Side 3rd party modules and custom modules
5.  Upgrade the Server Side site to 3.1 assuming its 2.1.2 SQL database with user info will make it through the upgrade
6.  Install my custom modules newly created for DNN3
7.  Install 3rd party modules and then import content from the modules on my development DNN3 site

This seems like an approach to take to keep from losing content and user info.  Anyone see anything wrong with this approach?  Have any tips?  Thanks.
