As this was a family vacation, I made almost no attempt to clinch additional mileage, so covered only slightly more than was absolutely necessary while touring the countryside.
You didn't do the tiny little bit to visit Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch station? You went through Llanfair PG (as it is on road signs), but didn't clinch the bit of A5 next to the station.

At least you did Pont Grog y Borth - the supreme roadgeek feature of the area (and possibly the country, given the Severn Bridge is wholly in England).

I figured that if I was going to Anglesey, I might as well take one bridge on the way (A55) and the other on the way back (A5). Part of the point of visiting the island was because my elderly mother wanted to see the neolithic monuments. That's why I ended up clinching the A5025 and almost completing A4080, but missed out on most of the A5 and AS5 on Anglesey. Oh well, something do next time. On the plus side, I did get to visit about half a dozen castles.

It was a great trip and had I been there by myself, I probably would have driven more and seen less.  ;) Sound familiar to anyone?

Just returned from a trip to Cuba via Tampa...

New Clinches for me:  I-485 (NC); SC 225, SC 10, GA 243, I-75 (FL)

I would've gotten GA 43 but a detour prevented it and I got nearly all of GA 220 instead...

Also picked up significant mileage on GA 17, I-75 (GA), and US 301 (FL).

Only got to do a small amount of riding on Cuba's roads...essentially through the tunnel under the Canal de Entrada was as far east as I got and the other direction not quite out to the airport.  Per Google maps I did not make it to any numbered routes and I saw no signage directing a motorist to the closest ones...
Clinched:
I: 4 12 16 17 20 26 27 30 59 64 66 68 72 73 ew74 77 78 79 82 83 ew84 85 ew86 e88 97 99
US: 4 6N 9W 11E 11W 13 15 19W 21 44 46 48 58 72 92 113 117 123 130 158 163 176 178 192 206 209 211 219 220 221 222 258 264 276 290 311 319 322 340 360 378 401 ew422 501 521 522 601 701

My buddy (justjake) and I took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather on Saturday and ventured down to Corridor H from Southwestern PA via convertible.  It was an odd feeling seeing a lot of colors on the leaves but having the top down and high temperatures in the mid-80s.  For me, I was able to add about 250 miles and clinch 12 new routes as well as all clinchable roads in Fayette County, PA.

Route Part 1 | Route Part 2 | Route Part 3 | Route Part 4

New Clinches
MD 42, MD 135, MD 560, US 250 Truck (Philippi, WV), WV 24, WV 32, WV 38, WV 42, WV 76, WV 90, WV 93, WV 131

New Miles on Previously Traveled Roads
PA 281, US 19 (WV), US 33 (WV), US 119 (WV), US 219 (WV), US 220 (WV), US 250 (WV), WV 7, WV 28, WV 55, WV 72, WV 92
