Title: Which Roads in a State Have You Clinched Along with the Fewest Others?
Post by: JayhawkCO on May 18, 2021, 10:41:03 AM
EDIT:  See below (reply #15) for a broadening of the topic.

I know this topic will be specific to those that use Travel Mapping, but was just curious if others had routes that they were the only "clincher" listed.  I have lots of international routes on that site where I'm the only one, so I figured it'd be easier/more interesting if we just used our home states.

According to Travel Mapping, I am the only one who has clinched:

I think I'm the most surprised by CO141 (it's such a pretty road and a lot of the other remote western Colorado highways have been clinched by a lot of different people) and CO7 (it's close enough to Denver and heads to some widely visited towns/tourist areas).  The ones I'm least surprised by are either CO59 or CO71 as those are some long ass highways through a whole lot of nothing.

None anymore, because someone else finished a 100% clinch of Minnesota (I'm at about 75%). But there are a couple other roads in other states I found that Iím the only one who has clinched so far.

For a while I was the sole clincher of:
MN 1
MN 6
MN 23
MN 172 (for a time I was also the only one who had been on this road, period)

I don't use Travel Mapping, but I would imagine I'm the only roadgeek who has clinched a number of roads in Kentucky. I can think of several in my home county that I doubt anyone else has clinched.

Alabama 17, 46, 69, 77, 86, 127, 140*, 155, 175*, 187*, 207, 219.

* also the only driver in TM on any part of the same route.

None for me. Two other people are already 100% complete with Indiana (though neither is from Indiana and I question whether they've actually done the new routings of US 33 and IN 912) and even the 4-digit routes in KY I clinched have at least 2 others.

I imagine I'd have to go pretty far from home to find a yet-unclinched route.

mapcat has over 75% of Kentucky clinched, but you may still have a few.

I am still the only one that has clinched PA 73 ALT TRUCK (Schwenksville).   :-D

Not on Travel Mapping, but I'm probably the only person on the forum that has clinched my street, as well as many other streets in my town. Have any of you ever been to Needham (besides I-95/128)?

I am currently the only full clincher of:

NC 33, 42, 43, 50, 55, 111, 906
SC 4, 6, 27, 33, 41, 45, 51, 64, 88, 99, 135, 137, 154*, 165, 207, 210, 212*, 213, 260*, 261, 267, 283, 311*, 341, 362, 363, 400*, 414, 421, 453, 512, 541*, 641, 692, 912*, 917

* - only driver at all

I'm probably the only clincher of a couple Virginia Facility routes that are not on TM - VA 315 (state house driveway closed since 9/11) for instance.

One person has clinched all of Illinois, and another person is one route short of a full clinch.  At least I take 4th place in terms of number of routes clinched, and 3rd place in terms of raw mileage.  Thanks, covid! (I elected not to travel outside of Illinois until I was fully vaccinated.)

None in Virginia.

Iím the only person to have clinched Nova Scotia Route 255 on Cape Breton Island and the only person shown as having clinched the portion of NS-4 on Cape Breton Island, although I wouldnít view the latter as clinching the full route.

Iím the only person who has either clinched or travelled on the A1140 in Scotland; while itís not a clinch, Iím also the only person whoís been on the B1347 and the B9131 (missing a clinch by less than a mile on the latter, but I wasnít thinking about clinches that day). Iím also the only person to have either clinched or travelled on the A4259 and the B390 in England.

I believe there are some other roads in Europe that arenít clinches that nobody else has travelled, but I donít have time to check all that right now since the missus just said dinner is ready.

In my state, none.

I did find a few roads in Iceland that I am (according to TravelMapping) the only clincher:  38 and 95

95 surprised me a bit as it is a former routing of the "Ring Road".

I poked around at a few domestic areas but didn't see any.  And I didn't see any option to generate a nice neat sortable table.
So my answer for US roads is "don't know for sure, but probably none".

Not in my state, but in Fujian Province in China, I have the original section of G1505 (called CHN-FJ G1501 on Travel Mapping) clinched, as it shows a 0%, and I don't use Travel Mapping. Due to the extension of G1505 into a full 4th beltway around Fuzhou (and Travel Mapping haven't updated that yet either), I'm missing all of the new section, which is like 2/3 of the route, so I actually don't have the route clinched, only the original section shown on Travel Mapping.

I'll slightly change the subject name and then we can involve everyone.  I guess I didn't think this through that much to realize that you East Coasters wouldn't have any unclinched routes.  There are still a lot out west that no one has logged.  (CO172, CO184, and CO348 still have no clinchers at all.)

New question: which route have you clinched that has the least amount of other clinchers?  Because I have OCD, I'll go state by state.  The number in the far right column it total people with it logged as clinched, so if it's a '1', I'm the only one so far.

Lone clinches:

In my own state, I'm the only clincher of GA81, GA138, GA155, GA162, and GA162Con (Porterdale). Elsewhere, I also hold the solo title on PR24.

Other states with a lower number than listed in the table already:

Alabama: AL165, AL169 (2 total clinchers each)
Florida: FL907 (8)
Hawaii: HI8930 (3)
Maryland: MD117, MD124 (10 each)

I was just doing it for me specifically rather than getting a table finding the lowest amount of clinchers per segment per state.  I was just kind of curious what my "most remote" routes were in each state.

Maine has some.

I couldn't remember if I had driven SC 413 so when I checked TM it showed that nobody has driven any of it.

Just checked the only SC state route I've never even crossed and it too has not been driven by anyone (SC 193).

Wouldn't be surprised if there are a few more among the 42 SC routes I have not driven any of...

I'm pretty sure I'm the sole clincher on this board of FM 1495 and FM 523 (btw, why aren't FM routes on TM?). Looking at TM overall, I see that TX-35 hasn't been clinched yet. I have everything north of Bay City, and I might go down to Corpus Christi this summer, clinching it along the way.

https://courses.teresco.org/metal/hdx/

Graph format should be "traveled", despite a different option saying "most likely you want this".

Before you choose the region you want, first choose any region with a small number of points (like the first one by default, Afghanistan), turn off "show markers", and then choose the one you want. Otherwise, it's going to take a really long time to load a large set.

I have now tried playing with this for a solid 15 minutes and I'm stumped. I have no idea how to get this to show anything relevant to this topic?

For the handful of US states that show up in the graph list, I can eventually get to a view where if I click on a segment it will give me a list of users who have traveled it, but this is actually less useful than just looking at routes in the highway browser.

In TravelMapping, there are three people who have Indiana 100% clinched, so there's no route with fewer than 3 people who have clinched it. The routes that have only three clinchers:

IN 13, IN 18, IN 28, IN 37(S), IN 39(N)
IN 43(S), IN 48(W), IN 54, IN 58
IN 59, IN 60, IN 63(S), IN 64, IN 65
IN 66, IN 69, IN 71(S), IN 75(N), IN 75(S)
IN 135, IN 157, IN 158, IN 159(N), IN 159(S)
IN 160, IN 165, IN 168, IN 203, IN 218(E)
IN 234(W), IN 235, IN 246, IN 256, IN 257
IN 264, IN 335(N), IN 337(N), IN 337(S), IN 356(E)
IN 356(W), IN 357, IN 362, IN 458, IN 462
IN 550(W)

Two that really surprise me are IN 37 and IN 135 as they're pretty major routes. What that tells me is that other than the three people who have the state 100% clinched, everybody else who's logged their travels has focused more on clinching the Interstate/US highway mileage and visiting counties and not on clinching state routes.

(CO172, CO184, and CO348 still have no clinchers at all.)

Since your original post, both of us have clinched CO348.

In Montana, I am the only TM user to have traveled or clinched MT 38. Much of it is a narrow, unpaved mountain road, though the spectacular Skalkaho Falls in the middle probably draws some non-masochistic tourists.

(btw, why aren't FM routes on TM?).

Being worked on, by a team member who also does a lot of TM system administration work. As you can imagine, it's a huge project, though many FM/RM routes have been drafted.

It looks like there are a few OK routes that only I have clinched, mostly because they ramble around in an illogical fashion that nobody would follow unless they were intending to clinch the route. OK-59 is one of these. A few others, I'm a little surprised by, like OK-76 (funnily enough, the section I'm unique on is not the stub end!). I'm also the only one to clinch OK-65 (which is a perfectly logical route, it just doesn't go to many big towns).

I seem to have slightly overestimated Eric Stuve's travels a bitóhis coverage on OKHighways is so vast that I assumed that he had more of the system done than he really does. While he does have more of it done than me, it looks like he's been to every terminus (which is the primary coverage focus of OKHighways) but not necessarily filled in the gaps in between.

Cross-posted from the "Highways you have Clinched" thread, which I thought this was until I couldn't find my previous post, some of these aren't full clinches but it's still relevant: 

Looks like I'm one of only 7 travelers to have been on NY 279, so I'm thinking that's probably my most niche clinched route!

Browsing around a bit more, it turns out that a portion of the state route closest to home also only has 7 travelers. Which is interesting because most routes around here have at least 9-10 or more. And the legend for "# of Travelers" only goes down to 5 when zoomed in on my home region.

With that said, I figured there wasn't much hope of me being the sole clincher of anything in TM anytime soon... that is, until I remembered Manitoba, where I've logged my travels (as best I can remember) on Winnipeg City Routes, a preview system.

Turns out I'm the sole traveler on portions of MB 236, MB 238, MB 307, and MB 520, plus Winnipeg City Routes 95, 105, and 145. Heading down to North Dakota, I am presumably the sole traveler on portions of ND 17 and ND 32; I've been to both Edinburg and Park River, and have those segments of their respective routes logged even though I don't remember with 100% certainty the exact routing I took.

Apparently nobody on Travel Mapping has clinched TX-35, which I did last week. Makes perfect sense though for a decently long route that is not the fastest route between its two endpoints in a relative corner of the country. I presume I am the sole clincher on this forum of several FM roads.

There are a few routes in Northeast Georgia where I'm the only TM user that has clinched them, but for a lot of these it's because the route as a whole doesn't necessarily make sense as a route that would be traveled from end to end.

GA 82, 191, 330, 334, 335.

I'm currently the only user to clinch ND 11 so far (and one of 2 to clinch ND 16 including the tendril south of I-94 through Beach and Golva).

So I think the fewest people to clinch I highway I have clinched is 3.  I share all my clinches with at least two other people, if I'm observing the stats on TM correctly.

Highway clinches I share with only two other people:  Minnesota 270, Illinois 1, Illinois 4, Illinois 78, Illinois 142, Illinois 149

In my state (Maryland) I had no illusions of being the only clincher of a particular route.  At best, I am only one of 7 people to clinch MD 382.  All of my other Maryland clinches, I am one of at least ten, if not more (or many more).

Worldwide, it looks like the only road that I am the only clincher is Iceland's TH 38.

(I will admit that I didn't do an exhaustive search; instead looked at the likely candidates)

I think this is all of them. It appears several of my "only me" clinches in Ontario have been taken away by other users gaining ground. :)

Only me:
ON 6 (Main only) - still missing some of the Manitoulin Island segment, so this is the only questionable one.
ON 7
ON 12
QC 245
Honourable mentions -> Iceland 261, which I've travelled 69.58%
                               -> QC 317, which I've travelled 88.28%
                               -> QC 321, which I've travelled 13.95%
                               -> QC 325, which I've travelled 1.78%


Me and one other user:
MB 45
ON 7A
ON 8
ON 10
ON 94
ON 124
ON 129
QC 215
TCH 1A (Portage la Prairie, MB)
Honourable mention -> MB 357, which I've travelled 18.84%

Me and two other users:
Iceland 359
ON 15
ON 19
ON 23
ON 24
ON 35
ON 37
ON 48
ON 89
ON 93
ON 118

                                  -> QC 315, which I've travelled 15.80%
                                  -> QC 338, which I've travelled 5.49%

I was amused to note that myself and oscar are the only ones to have been to Pinawa, MB - now that's truly the middle of nowhere!

Well oscar and I are the only ones to visit Chapleau, ON, so that's another contender! But the real lesson is that oscar has been everywhere. :sombrero:

And oscar is likely working on being everywhere for the second time around :)

I wish there were an easier way to do this on the Travel Mapping site than clicking and hunting through each individual route's page. I know I have a bunch in Utah and maybe a couple in Georgia too.

However, more interesting are those routes I've clinched where I am the only driver. Per the Travel Mapping website, Utah 45, 122, 125, 174, 208, and 218 all fall into that category, and there may be a few more - though I know some of these routes have been clinched by members of this forum who for various reasons don't use TM. Corco, for example, has clinched all but three of those.

Also, I used to have a few more that have gradually been picked away over the years. I know I was at one point the only driver on Utah 81, 87, 136, and 155.

Maybe Jim can figure out a way to search the TM DB for lowest clinched counts by state for us and spit a report out. I'm going to work on updating my list that I posted upthread for my own particular "most untraveled" highways.

Bolds are states or provinces where I am the only to clinch a route.
* denotes MS state highways aren't in TM yet.
Strikethrough shows a list where I'm the only in TM but somebody here has clinched it as well without logging their routes.

So in the U.S. & Canada, I'm the only clincher of 31 different routes.

OK, so to make sure I'm reading this right...

The route you have clinched in NY that has the fewest other clinchers is I-878?

Correct. I haven't done much (if anything really) in NY that isn't interstate mileage.
