Is it a bad idea for my terminally ill grandmother to go to the USA for 48hrs?

My dad and I are thinking of taking my 85yr old grandmother on a road trip. She was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer last Thursday and decided on Friday that she doesn't want to go through treatment. She does, however, want to see her sister, sister's kids and grandkids one last time. However, they live 1,300KM away in a mid-sized Mid-West city in the States while we're in Toronto. We'd like to make this visit happen for grandma, recognize all the risks inherent in trying to do so, and would like to hear the stories/experiences of anyone who has done anything similar. Relevant details below the fold. Thank you. [more inside]

What do you know about Kilmarnock VA?

In celebration of our 20th anniversary on Friday, Mrs COD and myself will be leaving the teenagers at home while we spend the weekend at a B&B in Kilmarnock VA. We plan to take the ferry over to Tangier Island on Saturday. Is anybody familiar enough with Kilmarnock to recommend restaurants for dinner, or which of the options on Tangier will deliver the best lunch? I know it's not a big town, that was the point. This is a quiet getaway and eat good seafood kind of weekend. Neither of us are up for the summer crowds of VA Beach or DC. Thanks!

Restaurant recommendation for Traverse City, MI (gluten-free?)

I'm looking for a nice restaurant in Traverse City, MI to take my wife for our anniversary. I am looking to spend under $100 as we are on a pretty tight budget while camping. We don't need super fancy but a non-chain would be nice. I prefer a non-ethnic restaurant, hopefully one that has gluten-free food offerings. (I have celiac's.)

Civil War History Road Trip (with teens) suggestions?

Two moms, three home-educated early-teen boys, planning a learning adventure for two weeks at the end of August. Driving north from South Florida, which civil war sites/events should we not miss? Also looking for great not-too-primitive tent camping. So far all we know for sure is that we want to check out Gettysburg. We want to make it educational, but awesome and fun for our not-too-fascinated kids. Your suggestions welcome!

Give me 3.5 days of away-from-it-all time in the Southwest.

Help me plan a long-weekend getaway in the Southwest. I don't have enough time to make it a road trip, but would like to drive down some scenic roads. I don't want to camp in the wilderness, but would like see a national park. I don't want a full native-american experience, but would love to buy some native american jewelry. Some shopping/dining would be cool. I want to take more photographs than I'll ever have time to upload to flickr. [more inside]

Roadtrip from Miami: to GA or NC (or none)?

I moved to US and Florida (Miami) recently and I am leaving this weekend (Friday after work, so 7PM-ish) for a small roadtrip. We are planning to sleep somewhere along the road (probably on a motel), staying saturday night somewhere nice, and returning on sunday. I will be traveling with my wife and we love getting to know different places, small towns, good food and some shopping too. We'd love to have an interesting road to drive, but I guess my options are either I-75 or I-95, right? So here's my question: between somewhere in GA (maybe even getting to Atlanta?) and somewhere in NC (any advice is welcome), and something else, what would you pick? Why?
