Re: how to rig this traveler.

yeah definitely the loop will have to be much longer. You have the right idea but it is not much use to you if you can't adjust it from your upwind helming position. One benefit of the continuous line is that you can uncleat the leeward side while sitting on the windward side without having to reach down for the other rope which will inevitably be right down on the low side!
