It turns out Atlanta's nowhere near Naples

I'm going to be spending three weeks in Atlanta this summer. How can I see a friend who lives in Naples, FL without spending $300?

I anticipate only having between 5pm on a Friday and 9am on a Monday to pull this off. Flying to Ft Meyers costs $300+. Greyhound takes 15 hours and costs $250. I see two possibilities.
One is renting a car and driving, which does not seem like a reasonable proposition. While I know how to drive, I don't own a car and have never done a road trip on my own. This would probably cost $200.
The other is meeting somewhere in between. Where? My friend is quite literally the proverbial little old lady--she's about 90 and weighs 90 lbs. She can't really see (so she can't drive), but is otherwise in perfect health. So we're down to planes, trains and buses on her end.
In summary the questions are: 1) Where could we meet that isn't Atlanta or Naples? 2) Is there some idea I haven't thought of?
