When I'm traveling in harsh environments, I use an old rebel and a good prime. I got the rebel on woot for like $300 refurbished. Instead of going the super weather sealed route, I went the "wouldn't be crushed if it got destroyed" route. It's lightweight and takes great pictures, and it's been beaten up pretty badly and lightly rained upon as well.
I have a 20D for the same reason. It also makes a god loaner for photo walks for that cute girl who shows up without a camera, or to let my 6 year old handle. 20D + 50mm f1.8 was $180 on eBay...
In general, the 60D is a great camera, and I think the better focus system makes it worth it over the 600D. I'd think used 50D before i went to a new 600D.
