  As we travel towards the new year, we're also traveling to Apache Junction, Arizona to help Jess, Tom and Zach start their new life in Gilbert, Arizona! 
  Looking back on this year brings many great memories along with some that we'd rather not dwell on, so for now, we'll do "just the facts, ma'am - only the facts"!
  Projecting out to include the miles left on today's journey, here's a summary of this year's life on the road:
