New battery in, how long can I go without registering?

I was on my way to San Diego from San Antonio, TX. I'm in the middle of nowhere Sonora, TX.

ABS light and ! light came on. Deja vu all over again when my battery died out on the road 2 years ago. Battery voltage was at 10.5. I've put a new one in, start up and drive so far, half a mile, no issues. How long can I go without registering? I have 1500 more miles to go.

I regret not having done the alternator for the past 2 months now if that is also the case. Still the same one for a 2010.

I have the D-KAN cable, waiting for Alpine to reply back and see if he can register tonight. Otherwise, I'll just keep going until I reach San Diego and register there.

I went like 3 months and all was good but the alternator will overcharge your battery so get'er done ASAP. I thought I had done it with Carly but the spec was off by 5 mah from the old one so it never did it.
