the radiator is coming off to be fixed. do i need to drain it at all or worry about any coolant spraying out under pressure? or is it just hitting the connection points, removing the hoses and dropping it out?

Theres a drain on the right side near the case, and it wont spray unless its hot.

Ethylene Glycol is bad stuff.  Dogs and kitties lick it up (because it tastes sweet) and die from ingestion. I wouldn't want that to happen to dogs.  I think most places that sell coolant will take it back or at least let you know where you can return it.

Sewer is a no-no.  There's no guarantee it will be treated before going into the water-cycle and it's bad stuff in concentration.

i'll bring it to the rally - you can bring it home and dump it there
I would gladly...but I'm gonna try to pack even lighter than last time. Maybe I can just put it in my camel back and make sure I close the valve on the hose. It is about 50% water anyways.
