Sorry, folks, and apologies to cl94, but I'm out for tomorrow.  Got too much to take care of (including a literature review for thesis) before I leave for Minnesota in 2 weeks.

Totally understand. I'd say "have fun", but lit review is anything but fun.

I'm passing on the pre-meet so I can clinch roads.

Lot of short stuff to clinch in the area. If you grab NY 254 between 9L and Warren St and NY 9L 1) between Lexington and 254 and 2) north of CRs 39/54 as part of your pre-meet clinching, you'll have a clinch of both by the end of the meet. Probably a dozen other things you could easily grab on your way up.

Already have 9L and 254. Basic plan is NY 40 N, NY 29 E (need 29 between 372 and 22), NY 22 N, CR 153 N → VT 153 N (clinch), VT 30 N (new mileage), VT 149 W → NY 149 W (clinching both VT and NY 149), US 4 S, NY 32 N, NY 196 E (need 196 east of 32), NY 40 S, NY 197 W (need 197 between 4 and 40), US 4 N, go to restaurant.

This would get me 100% done with Washington County, those pieces of 29, 149, 196, and 197 are all I currently need to do that. (TM map)

Nice area out there. Shouldn't take you too long to get everything. If you're feeling adventurous, Rensselaer CR 111 -> CR 114 -> Washington CR 74 would get you to the start of new mileage on NY 29 and pass an old truss bridge along CR 111. Adds 5 minutes, if that (NY 40 south of NY 67 is a drag).

I have canceled the pre-meet due to lack of interest. If anybody wants to follow the route on their own, notes are here. Main meet is still on and I'll see everyone who's attending at 11:30.

Well, a month late, but I'll be staying nearby this weekend.
