Drive to Five 2012 in Review
Odometer (Legend): 518,255
Odometer (ILX): 23,812
Determined to close out the year doing what I enjoy most (driving!), yesterday I took a drive in the Legend to the mining town of Superior, Arizona. It was about 60 miles each way. On the way there, I pulled off US highway 60 for a few pictures at a place called Florence Junction. Enjoy!
Driving along “El Camino Viejo” – translated: The Old Way.
Many thanks to those who have followed the blog this year. There is much more to come, so keep those seatbelts fastened and I hope you enjoy the ride in 2013 as much as I will. I’m just getting warmed up with my travels in the 2013 Acura ILX, having logged about 24,000 miles since I got the key in June. Meanwhile, the Legend of Legends, my 1994 LS coupe, continues its journey with regular updates to be shared here.

You’ve all given me the motivation to keep blogging!
The highest-traffic day on the blog in 2012 (with about 1,900 views) was June 14, 2012 when I announced that I’d begin driving a new 2013 Acura ILX 6-speed.
Thanks again, and here’s to open roads, green lights, and more exciting Acura adventures in 2013!
The rest of the report, prepared by WordPress:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 66,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
