driving without front drive shaft

I dropped my front drive shaft today to have the u-joints at the constant velocity joint.. Will it hurt to drive the truck without the front drive shaft till I get the shaft back?? Thanks.

No it won't hurt it, I ran with out it to test a theory to see if I got better gas mileage. I did in fact get better mileage ( I only put it back in for the snow)

only thing that sux is getting stuck everywhere you go, not sure where you're located but up here in AB mine gets stuck in an inch of snow in two wheel drive, and without a front shaft you're SOL.
Let me know what the ujoints cost, my brother just bought a complete new front shaft for $600 from the dealer, they told him new u-joints were $500, sounds a little high.
