That's actually just about perfect. On your next to last day home, brew. (Your last day, I'm sure you spend packing and spending with your wife and family.)
When you get back, it should be about ready to bottle. Take a gravity reading. Wait three days, and take another. If the gravity hasn't changed, fermentation is complete. Follow instructions and bottle.
By the time you get back from the next off-shore tour, it will be ready to drink.
