In brief: Just Do It!

Buy (rent or borrow) a medela double pump and new tubing, and a week or so before you go back, start pumping daily.
It's ok to stockpile a little milk before hand, but watch out for too frequent pumping which will put you on the road to too much milk and discomfort for having too great of a milk supply! relax, and pump while away from the baby while viewing a picture of him.
