I'd get a /6 spoked hub (if they fit the later RS, can't remember) and lace up a spoked wheel with monster spokes. It'll take impacts a little better than snowflakes. Plus shipping just the hub down would save a bit on shipping. Also, if you can get that thing bent/welded back into temporarily usable shape, send one of you to panama or somewhere farther down the road by bus with as much luggage as possible to go receive the parts and have everything ready for the fix when you get there. That and ditch as much weight as you can.
