Firstly, check that the diff breather isn't blocked. If its clear, Just keep the diff topped up, & check regularly. When U get back to civilisation, get the seal replaced then. . and probably the rear brake shoes/pads as well, as they might be impregnated with oil by then.

Oil level OK what I found was that 4 off the hub nuts where loose how it happened don't know you could turn by hand so hopping that was the cause see what happens tomorrow when we head up orchard beach
