Junction which is not a node
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:20:21 am »
I was wondering what do you do when you travel a route - typically state or provincial routes - up to a junction which is not a node in the website. Do you prefer logging the route up to the next node or to the previous one?

I use whichever one is closer. If it's a road I intend to travel again, I make a note to myself with the details.
Clinched:

I'm a bit more likely to use the previous one, and not falsely claim any mileage. Unless the distance lost would be too great, and the next node is much closer.

If the location where I‘ve entered is - let‘s say more than 1km - from the next waypoint in TM HB, I would request a new waypoint onthe Forum. But I‘m a contributor and can directly add the Point :)

^ Even under CHM, adding points to denote personal travels was a perk that Tim allowed to the contributors.

I generally use the previous one.  The exception is if I can "site clinch" up to the next node.
