Default Possible driveshaft problem. Can I still drive it on Highway for 500km?

First of all, Merry Christmas!

So here is my issue. After hard work for a year, I finally go vacation on Christmas. My wife and I decide to drive to Banff and Calgary for a week with our 2012 F150 XLT. We leave I the province next to Albert, with about 500 Km distance.

After drive about 300Km on high way, the noise form the truck suddenly become larger, and I can feel ratting varbiration from beneath the floor mat.

I stop the truck and go check and Google. the symptoms is very similar to the driveshaft issues. The ratting only cames when accelerate and de-accelerate and when speed over 50km/h. Everything else works fine expect the sound.

I can't stay on High way...So I drove the last 200km in this condition, keeping my speed below 110km/h. It seems works. I arrived at Banff last night and seems the truck is fine, expect that ratting sound still there...

So I have two questions here need help:

1. Is anyone can recommend a good auto repair shop in Calgary or Ford Dealer could fix this in two days? I could rent a vehicle during this time. But really need to drive the truck back to home to work.

2. If I decide to fix it after I go back home. Is it will be OK for me to drive the truck for another 500km with speed limits to 100km/h?

Thank you!
