How long is a rope? It's going to depend on how strong the signal really is (I have two cameras 20-30 feet apart, both up in trees, one showed 5 bars on this morning's status report, the other showed 1), what size thumbnails, how many HD requests you make, day photos vs. night photos, and so on. 30 second delay probably won't get you anything slower or faster than 0 second delay or save any power. Time between pics will probably be about the same, but you can test it.
Be aware that lithiums may not give you any warning before they die. They will show full power until they don't. Keep an eye on the P number on the night photos and when you see that below P5, it's time to think about changing the batteries because you may not have much time left.
How soon will you be going back? Could you ship the battery, box, and cable to your sister and have someone there hook it to the camera?
