Default transfer case busted while driving, stuck 100 miles from home

Hey guys.
I've been having a small vibration that I wasn't sure what it was. I was going to try to have my tires balanced. So I'm on a trip from Lawrence KS to Columbia MO with my 4 littles all of a sudden the vibration got worse then something let go. Then lots of grinding. I looked under my Ex to find fluid pouring out. Upon closer inspection I saw the transfer case part that has the front drive shaft part completely broke in half. After disengaging the hub the grinding seemed to stop and I could move with no grinding. I limped it to the next exit and pulled off the road. I was able to pull pieces out from above the trans support to hopefully keep stuff from jamming up. Does the trans and transfer case share fluid? Can I drive home still? Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks Jon

**Update** I got home ok. After I disengaged the hubs stuff stopped grinding and I drove it home. Got it pulled apart yesterday, pics to come soon.

Thanks ToolmakerRob for the help
