For the last 2 months, I have been having trouble sourcing liquid chlorine in my area. As of today, the closest I can find any at all (3 gallons) is approx. 90 miles away. I am in the last days of a SLAM, can see the bottom of the pool clearly. What are my options to chlorinate without driving my CYA up? It is currently at 40-

What is your CH?

If you saved your test results in Poolmath we could see them. You are sharing your data, but it is only showing chemical additions.

Athens -- Georgia or Greece?

At your low CH, you can use Calcium Hypochlorite. Otherwise known as 'shock', granulated chlorine, etc. Be sure to check the ingredients.
Do not buy any with other additives. It should be 73% cal hypo.
