Thank you all for the replies,
I will assume , I can fly to another field, touch and go, and return, with my backseater.
And that is a dual , 'Sport Pilot' cross-country, training flight.
I just have to log at least 2.0 hours or more of those.

Unless I am mistaken I thought it had to be a full stop not a touch and go?

I would make the airport of choice at least 25nm from your original point of departure, just so there is no mis understanding about whether it counts.

OK. Thank you again.
I will go to (KEFD), Galveston, TX, Class D, with my instructor.
Make a full stop and return. That is 26 NM , one way.
Plus I will get endorsed for 'Controlled' airspace training.
