Only if, as you say, "you want to stay connected to the mainstream
culture".  If not, then I don't see any problem maintaining whatever
clock-rate is best suited to your travel plans.  Through history, leaving
behind everyone you know and losing connection with your culture has been
the norm for the very small minority who leave home.  But a very small
minority is all that is needed to spread across the galaxy.
