Boxing and shipping is a bit of a hassle, but not that bad. All things being equal, I would much rather start by not shipping it so that I know for sure all my stuff won't get lost somehow and delay the start of the trip. After that consideration, I would next decide which direction I wanted to ride and if I had a strong preference for one direction or the other, I would likely make that my primary consideration. If not, then just start from home and ship it back.
