Buy around 20 x 8GB SD cards (or whatever you think your shooting rate needs) = $130.

This. Except today the sweet spot may be buying 20 16 gig-cards. When a card is full put it away.  Better yet mail it home.

I'm not sure about mailing home. Depends how and where from. Many countries still open mail and/or have a high loss rate!

The card size is less about cost and more about the fill rate. As you can't eliminate the unwanted files from the iPad until the card is full, you want a card fill rate that's geared to your shooting style. Also as the iPad fills, you get fewer chances to load a larger full card.
