Water Pump Seal Advice Please

I was due to leave on a four day trip tomorrow until I checked the fluid level in the radiator and found it was low.
The oil filter has some wavy pleats.
I've taken the WP cover off & pulled the seal. The impeller shaft is the "old" style without the black finish and needs replacing.

My question is: If I replace only the seal now how long can I expect it to last? End of summer? Late fall?
I don't get many chances for multi day trips and I'd like to still get away tomorrow and ideally wait until winter to replace the shaft with a new seal.

Does the original impeller shaft have wear marks? If it is still shiny, with no wear marks, it should be fine.

Thanks. Looks like my trip is postponed. Darn it!
