That's not a clinch. (I assume you mean from Exit 7 to Exit 8A.)

True, in the strictest sense. However, CHM did sort of introduce the idea of partial clinches, clinching mileage or segments, if not a whole route itself. :)

MT 47 since you have 70 MPH speed limits in addition easy access to make a high speed escape on your choice of I-90, I-94, and if you're crafty even US 212.

There's no such thing as a "multi-state route", it's just as many state routes as states implied that happen to have the same number.

All times 6 hours behind my real time unless otherwise noted.

Which interstates have you clinched by walking?

It is a near certainty that some shorter 3dis have been walked by litter pickup patrols, highway construction crews, facility maintenance folks, etc.

Also I-180 in Wyoming is probably walked every day by somebody as it has sidewalks on nearly all of it and a well worn foot path where it doesn't...

I'll have to see if have pictures of the Burma Shave signs that are up on AZ 66.  I know for sure they have them in the back lot of the Hackberry General store, you could say that in effect...you do drive to Burma Shave.

Then it shall be "Threads you'll always see in Threads you'll never see on aaroads.com".

Collectively, which counties have we been to?

I mean, someone could start such a thread, but it seems like a lot of trouble.
Let's see here: Madison County, AL; Limestone County, AL; Jackson County, AL; Marshall County, AL; DeKalb County, AL; Colbert County, AL; Lawrence County, AL; Lauderdale County, AL; Morgan County, AL; Giles County, TN; Cullman County, AL; Davidson County, TN; Gadsden County, FL; Gulf County, FL; Jefferson County, AL; Shelby County, AL; Montgomery County, AL; Mobile County, AL; several other counties in Alabama; several other counties in Tennessee; and... uh... multiple counties in Pennsylvania and Georgia?
