You should be totally fine. How many pads are you going to take? Joes tends to have really good landings under many problems (talus field bouldering it ain't), and many problems are of reasonable height. If you can take two pads, or even just one really big pad, you should be able to safely and comfortably boulder, solo, on at least half the problems you would want to try. Lots of problems are ultra-roadside, so if you have multiple pads, it is still easy to shuttle them to the base of the problem from the car. Even with one pad, you'd be pretty OK-- there are plenty of moderate height or short problems with flat dirt landings...certainly enough to keep one busy for over a week.
I'm not sure about weekdays, but on weekends there are guaranteed to be lots of people around, so long as the weather is good. As is the norm, bouldering areas are way easier to visit solo, since you don't need to find a partner, but instead can just join up with whatever group is on a problem you wish to try, and everyone is happy to have you pad(s) added to the pile.
