The waypoint issues on other routes are often headache-inducing, but that hasn't stopped me from trying to get them logged as accurately as possible. Some days I feel ready to take on a waypoint overhaul of the entire NY state route system, and other days I want to just delete my .list file and forget it. It's certainly fun and interesting, but also a major time sap, so it sometimes feels like a curse as much as a blessing.  :)

Insert plug for using the .list tool on TM's showroute page, and for using 6-entry list files for routes that span multiple regions.

If you need a tutorial on Github, let me know; it's really easy. All you're doing is basically editing your .list file "in the cloud", where the site is actually reading it from.

Thanks for the offer. There's instructions on TM and it looks easy enough, it's just a matter of getting around to trying it.  :D

Hey, that's a cool tool! Wish I knew about that before but I'll definitely use it going forward.

Good!  I can update travels in a fraction of the time it used to take before I implemented that functionality, and it's much less error-prone.  It's especially convenient for beltways, when it often takes a couple tries to make sure you selected what you meant to select when you travels include the start/end point of TM's definition of the route.

Additional tip: when you have the .list tool open, you can click on the first segment of your travels on the route, then shift-click on the last segment to get them all marked at once.

So I've finally managed to clinch a State Highway :sombrero:. Okay, I've cheated, it has been in Italy, where Strade Statali (State Highways) are at the US Route level. The route in question is the SS 145 Sorrentina.

Supporter of the construction of several running gags, including I-366 with a speed limit of 85 mph (137 km/h) and the Hypotenuse.

Please note that I may mention "invalid" FM channels, i.e. ending in an even number or down to 87.5. These are valid in Europe.

Interestingly, I have clinched two unsigned interstates in the past two weeks: I-345 and I-444.

I finished IA 27 today (the dumb placeholder for the Avenue of the Saints in that state, which has only a small independent section at the south end, otherwise duplexed entirely with other routes)
