I believe this falls for me down to 68. I have only been on MN 68 for its overlap with MN 19 in Marshall and its overlap with US 14 between New Ulm and Sleepy Eye. I also believe the times where I encountered US 68 didn't involve me exiting onto it.

Technically this drops back back down to 47; however, I remember driving a short section of NJ 47 north of US 322 as a result of missing my turn.  Otherwise I would still be at 89.

I am not affected by this condition at all now as I drove a solo piece of WV 47 on Thursday.

I've hit rock bottom.
The lowest numbered route that I haven't been on an independent section of is North Dakota Route 1.

It is concurrent with Interstate 94 and US 52 between exits 283 and 288. I have been on no other section of this route.

Since this is a spinoff of another thread, and the disclaimer is only in the other thread, here it is:

The thread title is slightly misleading taken literally. Taken literally, it would be 1 for everyone except those that have been on every single Route 1, but that's not what I meant.

If you've been on an independent section of any Route 1, it counts.

I already discount silly short concurrencies from my count in the original thread.  Silly short sections of standalone routes, however, are a different story.

Looks like I'm okay and my lowest numbered "independent" route matches what I've got in the main thread: 288.  Had I not taken some local trips over the past couple of years, I might have been stuck at 38 (IA 38's concurrency with I-80), but I've been on independent 38s now.

That said, I only have a 325 due to TN 325 having a short concurrency with TN 111...I think.  I should check on that.

Anyway, my concurrency touches:

325 (TN 325/TN 111).  NY 325's easy enough to get to.
333 (KY 333/US 60).  Biggest pain of the three.  PA 333 is far enough to be annoying.
555 (OH 555 with OH 37 or OH 78).  I'll get I-555 someday.

That's it.  Got a lot of holes between 288 and whatever anyway where I haven't touched anything.


Got NY 325, so my route touches due to concurrencies drops to just 333 and 555.

I think my number with this condition is currently 108.  I have only been on PA 108 when it is concurrent with PA 18 and/or PA 168, and TX 108 when it is concurrent with I-20 and US 380.
