FOND FAREWELL Our driver, Terry Ford, left us on Tuesday to join the Godsmack tour. Terry drove the Blue Bus for close to 5,000 miles. He knew every mile of every state we drove through, and had a great deal of off-road wisdom as well. The ABC uplink SUV has arrived, so we also say good-bye to Michael Oat and Ben Larson, who return home to Virginia on Wednesday with the Live on Site truck, after driving just as many miles right behind us.
From ABC News White Bus producer Marni Harriman, in Los Angeles, Calif.:
