I would also familiarize myself with the jump start terminals under the hood -- not a bad thing to know anyway. Then I would forget about it and enjoy my vacation, come back, jump in the car and drive off with a smile and a lightened wallet.
it should be about four weeks to maybe two months depending on the situation. your recommendation sounds good - i can't leave the keys to a neighbour either so the battery pack sounds good. do i need to prop the hood up? worried about theft and all if the hood happens to be open.
