You can back over a network using a drive attached to another Mac. See this article. Look in the Portable Mac section of that article. It discusses the basics of backing up to a shared drive on another Mac. Follow the link in that section it has more specifics about setup.

Edit: I haven't tried this method so I can't vouch for how much the backup slows down if the first (host) Mac is being used while the second Mac is trying to do a backup, Obviously both Macs have to be on and connected to the network for the backup to take place
