You clinched all of Nova Scotia's freeways?  Consider me jealous.

Including the two little stubby ones that don't go anywhere. Didn't see another car the whole time on NS-162.  I think my favorite was NS-107 out to the east shore.  Reminded me a lot of northern Minnesota out there, but still only half an hour away from Halifax.  Seems like a nice place to have some property not that I immediately went on Zillow to check out how much stuff was going for...

Updating my list for Indiana: All
Indiana: counties 100%, highways 100%
Illinois: counties 100%, highways 61%
Michigan: counties 100%, highways 56%
Wisconsin: counties 86%, highways 23%

I wish there were a spreadsheet or survey or something where each AARoads person could enter the highways they've clinched so we could analyze trends including popularity among roadgeeks, which highways the community has barely touched, highways traveled among different states of residence, etc. That would be fascinating information.

That would be TravelMapping, where users can enter in their own clinches. The maps (such as Washington for me) also allow you to display routes by the number of travelers. It takes a bit of poking around, but there are a handful of highways in Washington that have recorded 1 or 2 roadgeeks on them.

TravelMapping also provides some incredible statistics for users in their log files.

Indiana was one of the later states to have its state highways added to the database, and that's what really motivated me to finish the entire state.

Heh.  It is tedious and for dedicated geeks.

Yes, and it's also free. I don't mind doing all that work myself if the alternative is paying to have it be more user-friendly.

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.)

I also enjoy this, and why I created this thread which I probably need to update for myself.

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

Same, but I can't deny the nerdy usability factor.

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.
Indiana: counties 100%, highways 100%
Illinois: counties 100%, highways 61%
Michigan: counties 100%, highways 56%
Wisconsin: counties 86%, highways 23%

The strangest clinch I have is A-740 in Québec City, which I've clinched thanks to bus routes 75 and 804.

TravelMapping is pretty neat, although the "numbers of drivers" may be slightly incorrect as some people maintain more than one file...

E.g. I have a file for routes I drove myself and another for routes where I was a passenger (be it in a car, bus, etc.) so it double counts

On the other hand, there are a few segments of highway in western and central Kansas showing 0 travelers. According to TM, I'm the only roadgeek to ever travel the east half of K-106 (and thus the only one to ever clinch it). Nobody has ever even been on K-228 at all (and I missed my chance to be the first, because I didn't have it marked on my itinerary and thus didn't go for the easy 5-minute clinch).
