Sounds like a great plan. I would do that as well. Probably bring a 21" and 18" tube. Everything else I would leave with a good friend who will answer the phone 24/7. Leave him my Fed/Ex account info and I will have anything I need overnight if necessary (including the new spare fuel pump I now have in my garage.) I'm up to about 6 years with no sign of problems. A battery tender will work wonders.
