between a transmission and a hard place

In a seriously uncomfortable position with my car. I'm preparing to leave on a 3000 mile journey for the west coast where I will live and my car needs to have the tranny dropped to install a new slave cylinder and clutch. My mechanic friend who is currently having personal issues has flown the coop so to speak with my car up on jackstands in my driveway with the plastic covers off and the cradle hanging. I have absolutely no knowledge of taking the tranny out this way. I have no idea what to do and if I don't do anything soon I'll have no choice but to leave the car for my friend to fix and then sell it later on. If anyone has a tip I'd appreciate it.

Would help if you said where you live - there may be a member who could pick up where it got left. Is it such that you could put it back together and drive it/tow it to a shop to get the work done?
