It's always sadly amusing when someone's number changes and yet they don't move up the ranks...

But we do have 245, 246, 247, and 248 consecutively within the ranks for now.

Snagged VA 239 on Monday, which moves me up to..... 245. Woo.

Annoyingly it looks like I drove right by MD 245 on Sunday.

Just more of a reason for you to clinch some more roads in New York! NY 245 is a nice, varied drive in the Finger Lakes.

To add to that, if anyone wants a quality 245 check out the one in California.  In a good handling car itís a blast to drive and is a competitor for curviest California State Route.

While nursing a flat tire in Florence, Alabama, I did travel Tn 248, so my lowest number is now 268.

Well I guess you will be getting off I-80 near Emlenton, PA, the next time you follow that corridor.

I had picked off 246 in Toledo at the end of January. Didn't feel it was worth mentioning at the time.

My wife dragged me up to Tulsa today, so I clinched OK-97 while I was up there. I have OK-98 and 99 clinched (actually clinched 98 because of this thread, in preparation of this moment), and I've been on WI-100. My lowest is now 101.

I'm guessing anyone that uses Travel Mapping probably knows this, but there's a handy page where you can view the list of all route numbers you have/haven't been on. Here's mine: https://travelmapping.net/user/routesbynumber.php?units=miles&u=webny99&

... but I only just started using TM, so mine isn't fully up to date. I know I've been on US 2, NJ 4, and EDIT: ON 24, US 25E, ON 27, ND 32, I-37, and I-40, but not 100% sure about anything higher than that, so I'll go with 43 as my first-time answer to this thread for now.

I would argue that VA 101 next to the Roanoke Airport is easier to get if you somehow ever end up flying there.

He wouldn't even have to go to the Golden Gate.  US-101 runs right past SFO airport.

You folks are making things harder for Scott5114 than they need to be.
I'm sure he's aware that there is an Oklahoma state road 101, presumably much closer to him than the Golden Gate Bridge :)

Haha, yeah, Sallisaw is on my shortlist of places to go (which is probably the first time anyone has ever said that). I have a routing in mind that will snag me OK-104 too.

Unfortunately, I'm already starting to get into territory where the OK route numbering system starts thinning out. I'm preparing for that by going on out-of-state routes that don't exist in Oklahoma whenever it's convenient, though. In October, I picked up K-106, and on the way to the Natchez meet I'm going to be sure to touch LA-107.

TIL that MN 43 has a multiplex with I-90 which I've been on. So I'm actually at 47.

Still at 47 after finishing my initial data entry and edits. 47 and 68 are my only numbers under 100 not traveled on. TM also shows 57 and 97, but I have been on Onondaga CR 57 and RR 97 near Cambridge, ON.

Just checked mine, and my first two are 107 and 117. Not sure how I'm going to get those, given WY, SD, and NE don't have an option for that, but I bet I can figure something out.

While tracking my travels, I realized that I have been on my lowest number (47) 8 years ago, on an overlap of MO 47 with MO 21. So now to find my next lowest...

OH 48, MO 49, US 50, US 51, US 52, IL 53, US 54, I-55, OH 56, I-57

New lowest is 58 for me.

After that, my second lowest, as a note to myself...

US 59, PA 60, US 61, US 62, OH 63, I-64, I-65, I-66, US 67, I-68, I-69, I-70, I-71, I-72, OH 73, I-74, I-75, I-76, I-77, I-78, I-79, I-80, I-81, CA 82, I-83, I-84, I-85

...is 86.
Got a short part of IN 58 connecting between I-69 and IN 57 at Elnora yesterday. So, 86 is my next lowest number. Hoping to get eastern I-86 this summer on a potential trip to the northeast. After that, my second lowest number is 89, now that I also got AR 88 on my spring break trip too.
