This kind of defeats the purpose of BIAB but do you have a large cooler that would hold all the grain?  Does your neighbor have one.

My thought is use a big cooler for the mash/sparge, transfer as much as you can to the boil kettle, and add the rest through out the boil.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

I do a batch sparge similar to what you are talking about for my heavier grain bills.  What I usually do is figure out about how much water will be absorbed by the grain, subtract that from the total water needed, and then divide the remaining water half.  I then add back the amount of water which will be absorbed by the grain into the pot I will mash in. 

This, theoretically, will give about the same amount of wort from both the mash and the sparge.  I am not too particular about getting it exact, just ballpark.

I mash in my usual kettle and towards the end, heat up the pot with the sparge water in it.  I usually bring it up to around 160F or so.  When the mash is done, I pull up the bag from the mash pot, allow it to drain most of the wort out and then put the bag into the second pot.  I reopen the bag and stir the grains very well for about 5 minutes to get good contact of the grains with the sparge water.  For me, I usually then take my first kettle and put it back onto the burner and begin heating to a boil, take a reading on the volume and gravity (with a refractometer), and then pull the bag from the sparge pot.  I hang, drain, and then squeeze (yes, I am a squeezer) to remove all the free wort that I can reasonably do.  From there I take a gravity and volume of the sparge before pouring it back into the main kettle.

Overall, it takes about an extra 20 minutes over my typical full volume BIAB.  I mix the two batches of wort well before taking another gravity sample and volume measurement.  It does bring my efficiency up close to where I usually get with my full volume BIAB (mid 80's vs about 6% to 87%).

Since with traditional BIAB you are generally looking at a very thin mash, there's really no concern with reserving some of the water volume and adding it back after the mash.

I no-sparge in a bag-lined cooler (essentially the same idea as BIAB, but using a cooler to maintain mash temps). I limit my mash thickness to 3 qt/lb in smaller beers, and add the rest of my water after draining my bag.
