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

Big additions to my stats are coming with tonight's update, which I hope will complete with this hotel's network.  I drove primarily I-35 to Laredo then US 83 to Brownsville.  This finishes off all of "unlettered" I-35 for me, now missing only some of the Fort Worth I-35W.  Along the way, I had my first travels on each of the new Rio Grande Valley interstates, clinching the little I-69W in Laredo (at least I'm claiming it, though part was only on the frontage road to make sure I didn't end up on the bridge to Mexico), clinching I-2 for sure, traveling just a little piece of I-69C so I could say I did, and picking up my first miles on I-69E from Harlingen to here in Brownsville.  I should be able to finish off I-69E's current segment on my way up to Austin tomorrow.  I saw no mention of I-169 from I-69E.  I suppose it's a hidden designation, but I can't get it anyway without racking up fees by activating my rental car's TxTag.

Today should get me up around 87,000 miles in the active+preview routes.  And 1781 counties with today's 8 new.

As I mentioned in some of the Quebec threads, last month I took a week-long road trip to and from the Lac St. Jean/Saguenay region of Quebec, to get that in before it started snowing up there. That trip restored my 100% clinch of the Autoroute system. I'm expecting it'll be awhile before Transports Quebec adds more km-age to that system, so that clinch might hold for a few years.

On the way up and back, I also clinched US 3 and US 5. That gives me all the non-bannered US routes in New England, though I'm missing some business and alternate US routes.

Some highlights from yesterday's ride from Brownsville to Austin via Corpus Christi.  I finished up I-69E and also drove Business US 77 in Brownsville.  Interesting that I-69E ends at the last intersection but US 77 and US 83 continue to the Mexican border.  Signs and TM agree on this.  In the Corpus Christi area, I decided to check out Port Aransas a bit and saw lots of Harvey damage.  I took US 181 back up to San Antonio, taking me from 0% to 100% in a single ride and giving me my 4th US highway clinch.  Shortly after I passed by Floresville, I first heard about the horrible church shooting when I was only about 20 miles from the site.  At San Antonio, I decided I could afford to take US 281 to US 290 and see a little Hill Country.  The scenery was great, but the traffic and construction just north of Loop 1604 was a mess.

Overall in 2 days I went from from 86,687 miles to 87,454 on active+preview, traveled routes up from 2283 to 2403, and clinched routes up from 659 to 668.

I recently clinched WI35 again, since the route was rerouted around WI64.

My wife and I took a five-day vacation down to Anna Maria Island, FL (first one without kids) - luckily we got out of Pittsburgh before the record low temps hit.  I picked up some new miles on I-4, I-75, I-275, US 19, US 41, US 301, FL 64 and FL 618 (Selmon Expressway) as well as clinched US 41 Business in Bradenton, FL 684 and FL 789.  I also added Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties.
