Trucks dead, Big problem.

Right now im up at the family cabin in New Mexico. I towed a trailer with fire wood 12 hours from home in west texas. We only brought one vehicle, being my truck. Where we're at, the closest town is an hour and a half away, and nobody I know lives there.

My problem is I let my truck die.. We have no electricity up here and I have no way to jump my truck. (I've had quite the time hiking to a place so i can get some help from y'all) Is there any way I can get it started? Is it possible to roll down a hill in nuetral then drop it into first or second and get it started, such as you can do with a standard? Any advice or help GREATLY appreciated!
