I clinched 4 new routes yesterday, listed below. It was probably my biggest clinching day by volume of all time. I'm particularly proud of clinching TX-35, which is my longest route so far that I've clinched as a driver.

TX-35
TX-316
TX SPUR 91
FM 1301

As was mentioned above, I find it interesting to poke around TM's Mapview (https://travelmapping.net/user/mapview.php) and choose "Color by Traveler Count" in the first dropdown at the top once you have a map up.  You can pretty easily find routes that are untraveled or very lightly traveled by our users.  In all Mapview views, you can click on a road segment to see how many have traveled it, and then if you click on that traveler count and hover over, it shows the list of travelers.  (I don't load that before the click there as it would greatly slow down page loads to construct those lists for every traveled segment.)

Wow, this taught me a lot of functionality I didn't know existed. Thanks!

Yes, same here! And that page actually loads a lot quicker when I choose "None selected" for the user, unlike when I've used the page to view my own travels, which often takes a long time to load.

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!


So I was playing around with this and noticed that different numbers of people have clinched the VA, DC and MD portions of the Wilson Bridge.

Ha, yes I've noticed that myself. The DC portion is so trivial that only the truly pedantic among us notice or care about it (but among roadgeeks, that's still over 90%  :-D)

Of course, if those users were taking advantage of the 6-field list entries we implemented in TM a while back, where you can specify the endpoints of your travels on a route that spans regions to mark the travels across region boundaries, they would not need to list the tiny DC segment to get credit for it.  For example, in my jt2022.list file for my 2022 travels, I need multiple entries for my non-contiguous travels on parts of I-95, but each such segment needs only one entry:

Code: [Select]
FL I-95 373 VA I-95 46
VA I-95 84 MD I-95 22
MD I-95 62 DE I-95 5D
DE I-95 11 PA I-95 40
NJ I-95 6 NJ I-95 15
RI I-95 21 RI I-95 23
RI I-95 27 RI I-95 29

You can mix 4-field and 6-field entries in .list files, so the last 3 could omit the second "NJ I-95" or "RI I-95" and be valid 4-field entries that specify the same travels.

Proud to say I've just clinched all the interstate highway system mileage in Alaska as of yesterday to add to Hawaii, CA, FL, and TX. Whew.

So I was playing around with this and noticed that different numbers of people have clinched the VA, DC and MD portions of the Wilson Bridge.

Ha, yes I've noticed that myself. The DC portion is so trivial that only the truly pedantic among us notice or care about it (but among roadgeeks, that's still over 90%  :-D)

Of course, if those users were taking advantage of the 6-field list entries we implemented in TM a while back, where you can specify the endpoints of your travels on a route that spans regions to mark the travels across region boundaries, they would not need to list the tiny DC segment to get credit for it.  For example, in my jt2022.list file for my 2022 travels, I need multiple entries for my non-contiguous travels on parts of I-95, but each such segment needs only one entry:

VA I-95 84 MD I-95 22
MD I-95 62 DE I-95 5D
DE I-95 11 PA I-95 40
NJ I-95 6 NJ I-95 15
RI I-95 21 RI I-95 23
RI I-95 27 RI I-95 29

You can mix 4-field and 6-field entries in .list files, so the last 3 could omit the second "NJ I-95" or "RI I-95" and be valid 4-field entries that specify the same travels.

Yes, I was aware of that functionality but haven't used it myself since I have everything in my list file organized by state.

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.

I'm originally from that part of ND (my mom grew up in Edinburg), so it doesn't surprise me not a lot of people on TM would make it up that far. It's not quite the middle of nowhere, but pretty darn close.

Pfft.  I don't keep track of anything on TM besides Interstates, but I've been on NY 279 as well.  Probably a decent number of other travelers have, too.

Why would that have to be prefaced with pfft? The conversation was about travel mapping. (And I'm not sure why you wouldn't log all your travels if you're going to bother with TM, but that's a conversation for another day...)

Pfft.  TM doesn't allow you to keep track of things chronologically.  I've got separate files with my travel routes.  Like I said, I don't care about clinching anything except for Interstates and counties.

The TM site doesn't sort anything chronologically, but your .list file that you submit can be sorted chronologically if that's what you want.

And that's fine... but by TM standards, 7 travelers on a given route is about as low as it gets in this region. Even if there are more who don't have it logged, there's no way to know that. It works fine as an approximation.


The TM site doesn't sort anything chronologically, but your .list file that you submit can be sorted chronologically if that's what you want.

Yes, I organized my list file in numerical order by state for the initial data entry, and then chronological order after that. (I've only been to 5 states since I started using TM, so all but those 5 states are still fully in numerical order.)

Hey, cheers. I didn't grow up in ND, but my mom's family was from that area so I spent many summers there as a kid.

I actually think most people would consider it the middle of nowhere once you get west of I-29. There's really nothing but flat farmland and the occasional small town (often with <1000 people) - a completely different world from any big city to say the least!

Pfft.  TM doesn't allow you to keep track of things chronologically.  I've got separate files with my travel routes.  Like I said, I don't care about clinching anything except for Interstates and counties.

What's your granularity for chronological tracking?  Something like first and most recent travels?  By entire route?  By segments?

I've maintained my tracking that started pre-CHM and pre-TM for a few systems of interest with my highway photo pages (usai, usaus, usany, and usama, to use TM system names) where for each route I denote my year of first travels, the year I clinched the route, and the year of my most recent travels.  I don't track the year info for individual segments, just the entire route.

Pfft.  TM doesn't allow you to keep track of things chronologically.  I've got separate files with my travel routes.  Like I said, I don't care about clinching anything except for Interstates and counties.

What's your granularity for chronological tracking?  Something like first and most recent travels?  By entire route?  By segments?

I've maintained my tracking that started pre-CHM and pre-TM for a few systems of interest with my highway photo pages (usai, usaus, usany, and usama, to use TM system names) where for each route I denote my year of first travels, the year I clinched the route, and the year of my most recent travels.  I don't track the year info for individual segments, just the entire route.
Just whenever I send in a new .list file to update my Interstate clinches.

Like I said, I don't clinch other systems, so whenever there's some activity on here where someone asks who's been on what, if I care enough, I dig through old travel files I've kept over the years.

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.

Heh, in McClain County, one county south of metro OKC, most of the primary state routes have between 3 and 5 travelers. There's even a segment with 1 (and it's me).

And that's fine... but by TM standards, 7 travelers on a given route is about as low as it gets in this region. Even if there are more who don't have it logged, there's no way to know that. It works fine as an approximation.

I was looking at the Traveled by User Mapview option, and found very few segments with only 5 or 6 in Florida. With ten users at over 75% completion, that's suddenly does not seem so surprising.

I've put a lot of effort into clinching California roads. Here's my list of state highways (including the California portions of US and Interstate routes):

1, 2, 3, 4, I-5, US-6, 7, 9, I-8, I-10, 11, 14, 15/I-15, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, I-40, 41, 43, 44, 46, 47, 49, US-50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60, 62, 63, 65, 66, 67, 68, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, I-80, 83, 84, 86, 89, 90, 91, 92, 94, US-95, US-97, 98, 99, US-101, 103, I-105, 107, 109, 110/I-110, 111, 114, 115, 118, 119, 121, 125, 126, 127, 129, 130, 131, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 142, 144, 145, 146, 147, 149, 150, 151, 153, 154, 155, 156, 158, 160, 161, 163, 166, 167, 168, 169, 170, 172, 173, 174, 177, 178, 180, 182, 183, 184, 185, 186, 187, 188, 189, 190, 191, 192, 193, 195, 197, 198, US-199, 200, 201, 202, 203, 204, I-205, 207, 209, 210/I-210, 211, 213, I-215, 216, 217, 218, 221, 223, 225, 227, 229, 232, 233, 236, 237, 238/I-238, 241, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 253, 254, 255, 259, 261, 263, 265, 266, 267, 269, 270, 271, 273, 274, 275, 282, 283, 284, 299, I-305, 330, 371, US-395, I-405, I-505, I-580, I-605, I-710, I-805, 905, I-980 (204 total)

I've also clinched these numbered county routes:

66, A13, A18, D3, E5, E6, E18, G1, G7, G8, G9, G11, G12, G13, G14, G15, G16, G17, G18, G19, G20, J1, J4, J21, J35, J37, J41, J44, J132, N1, N2, N3, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N9, R2, R3, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8, S9, S10, S11, S12, S13, S14, S15, S16, S17, S18, S19, S21, S22, S24, S25, S26, S27, S28, S29, S30, S31, S32, S33, S34, S80 (79 total)

My record for state highway clinches in a single trip is 15, on a trip to Oregon in '17. Since I've been running low on state highways, I've started clinching numbered county routes, and last April I did 24 state or county routes in one trip mostly around the Bay Area:

9, 17, 24, 35, 77, 92, 109, 114, 145, 185, 236, 237, CR-G1, CR-G7, CR-G8, CR-G11, CR-G12, CR-G16, CR-G17, CR-G19, CR-J29, CR-J35, CR-J44

I guess someday I'm going to have to start clinching Forest Routes or something. Or move to a new state.

What's the general consensus on how the strict the definition of clinching is? Does getting on and off a freeway at the same exit disqualify you because you didn't go under the underpass? What about turning right off a road at an intersection, then turning right to get back on, thus missing a few feet in the middle of the junction? Or is it enough to have laid eyes upon each inch of a highway? Just want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row  :biggrin:

Both of the examples you mentioned still count as a clinch. There are varying definitions from user to user, but there's general agreement on the examples above.

Still not sure how one can say they've been on 100% of a route given the "general agreement" on here about the "same interchange" acceptance.  Simple fact is that one hasn't been on that short portion between whichever ramps, so one hasn't been on the entire route.

It's a rule for convenience rather than accuracy.

So, don't be a sissy and drive down to the next interchange and flip around and get that little section so you can really say that you've been on the entire route, rather than including and asterix that you've applied the same interchange rule that a bunch of roadgeeks virtually shook hands over some time ago. :D

Thanks. Yeah it makes sense that taking the exit doesn't count. I guess that specific situation doesn't affect any clinches for me. Taking the exit at the very end of a highway would though: I-129 in Nebraska and I-215 in Nevada.

Here's my list:

Illinois - I-94

Iowa - I-129
U.S. 77  :cool:

Minnesota - I-35 (both segments), 35W, 94, 394, 494, 535, 694
U.S. 8, 10, 52, 65, 69, 212, 218
MN 6, 20, 21, 24, 26, 34, 38, 39, 41, 45, 50, 51, 55, 56, 58, 62 (both segments), 77, 79, 80, 83, 96, 97, 100, 101 (both segments), 104, 105, 109, 114, 117, 120, 121, 123, 149, 171, 172, 175, 222, 223, 226, 237, 243, 244, 246, 247, 248, 251, 252, 270, 271, 274, 280, 282, 284, 286, 287, 298, 299, 301, 313*, 316, 610

Nevada - NV 372, 592 (west segment)

North Dakota - I-29, 194
U.S. 10
ND 9, 20*, 24, 26, 27, 28 (south segment), 38, 48 (both segments), 49, 53, 56, 59, 89 (Cavalier AFS segment), 91 (St. Thomas segment), 97, 127, 200A (west segment), 210, 294, 297, 810

South Dakota - SD 106

Wisconsin - I-94, 535

*I turned around at the last turnoff before Canada, which admittedly might also invalidate the clinch. I didn't want to mess with border control given my lack of passport.
