Engine Oil Temp At 300

Out with the family and upon after stopping at a sonic drive in to eat car idle for about 30 mins temp started shooting upwards to 300
I pulled into a walmart I know I needed to add some oil cuz when I checked this morning it was a little low almost a quarter. I'm gonna get some Rotella t6 but I fear it may be a coolant issue as the reservoir seems to have been releasing some. So I don't think Walmart has ford Gold what should I do?
I'm kinda stranded here with wife in law and 5 kids.

if your oil was at 300 and your coolant was at 213 you oil cooler is shot. which would explain the coolant puking from the degas bottle. I have experienced this with my truck a few years ago. How far away from home are you?

anything above a 12 degree difference between oil and coolant temp indicates a plugged oil cooler. You can watch your temps like a hawk and drive home if you get anywhere above 260 oil temp pull over, let it idle a bit or shut it down and wait till it goes back down. Basically limp it back home. Be very careful doing this!!
