If I may ask, when exactly are these upcoming trips? Are they both trips to see M? T? some of each?
And these will be no-PIV trips, but the batch of trips after that might be PIV's? Are you personally hoping that'll be permitted soon? Like, real soon, or what? a month? a year? Do you think you'll ever need it to be permitted?
With the variety of perspectives available on this thread, I hope you'll be able to assemble a composite picture that works for you. Let us know how thing are going ...
