That is not going to work.  You always have to get the new session cookie.  Standard session expiration time is 1440 seconds (24 minutes) of inactivity.  Some time after that, the session will expire on the server and you will not be able to use the old session ID.

If you are not making any more page requests during that time, the answer is probably yes.
