all i said was if he's concerned, it takes no time at all to disconnect. It's worth the peace of mind. If it was the middle of winter I'd say do it for sure, but even around this time I'd err on the side of caution to avoid a headache. If the car is to be left at home then either way it's not a big deal, but if it's being left in the park-and-fly, it'd be a pisser to get off a plane to a dead car.
I'm leaving it at home and getting a ride to the airport. My 05' Acura RSX Type S was left in the coldest segment of winter for 12 weeks straight and was started only once at the 9 week mark. It hesitated ever so slightly but at the end of the 12th week it started up like a champ. I miss that car quite often.

I've read a thread someone... once... about a guy like you... that went through A LOT to store his car, which included some of the comments made by posters on here. Such as removing the tires and rims and storing them somewhere safe.
Then having the vehicle stored in a climate controlled garage, somewhere safe, with the battery on a constant charge....
Really 10 days is okay... I left my car for 10+ days outside in -40 degree weather... and it started fine after the 10 days. Just make sure though you keep the battery warm
