Likes like a front end rebuild is in order. I suspect that I filled the diff with silt when at the brazeau river, and it blew the axle seal and got into wheel, where it destroyed many small important parts:( it felt really solid until the last 10 seconds! That was a scary ride across 2 lanes of highway 43 at full speed

The caliper was only thing holding the wheel on, and it was ground into the aluminum wheel!

Turns out the birf spindle was broken. Axle seal looked good still. But I'm swapping out everything. I don't know if the axle broke and caused everything else to fail, or the axle nut backed off first. Now that I'm thinking back I remember hearing the birf clicking when we aired down at Brazeau.
