2012 Travels

We started 2012 in Port St. Lucie, FL and ended in Hesperia, CA for a total of 10,758 miles.  This is more miles than in 2011, but a bit less than most years. We got a new car this year, a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and drove both cars for 16,011 miles.  This is in line with other years.  We camped at 51 unique camping spots, 15 for the first time, but we did not get to many new areas to explore.  It was nice to finally get to Yosemite National Park as adults.  It was also nice to have some extended time in Tucson.
