Finally got my list updated (and then corrected 1 error) from a recent trip.

Added 49 counties (22 in OK, 12 in AR, 8 in TX and 7 in MS).
Clinched I-235 (OK), I-240 (OK), I-269 (MS and TN), I-369 (TX), I-430 (AR), I-440 (AR), I-540 (AR) and I-630 (AR).
Also completed I-40 in AR (and 186 miles in OK), I-44 in TX (and 131 miles in OK), US82 in AR and MS (and 274 miles in TX).
Added mileage on I-35 and several US and state routes in OK as well.

Just got back from moving Mapkitten to California. Since my wife drove, there wasn't much opportunity to do any unnecessary driving, so I only added about 280 miles. Those miles did include a clinch of US 6 (I was missing the segment in Colorado between I-70 exits 62 & 72), the I-5 truck bypass in Newhall, and the new I-710 bridge. We managed to deviate from the straightest path home to explore Arches NP for a day as well. There's still a lot of work to be done on the segment of I-70 closed by multiple landslides a few weeks ago, but the drive through there wasn't bad, even though only one lane was open on each carriageway through the work sites. Pretty miraculous that CDOT was able to get it functioning as quickly as they did.

Clinched:

Day 1 of my return trip back east was today.  Focused on reclinching MN/IA 60, as I had last traveled it before many of the bypasses built as part of the 4-laning were completed.  Also completed the "other" MN 62,  business routes in Sioux City and Fort Dodge, some loose ends around Waterloo, and completed US 20 across Iowa.

I haven't updated my .list file in nearly 3 months -- June ended up being busier than expected, July turned totally crazy, and I've been trying to update all my Massachusetts stuff to reflect exit number changes (including a number of knock-on effects on routes we may not have considered). But as I'm not expecting to get any more new mileage for a few weeks I figured I'd post my summer travels now. This consisted mostly of trips between various places in Virginia (though no new mileage in VA) and eastern PA, plus one trip across from eastern PA to western PA and back. (We've been house-sitting for my parents in eastern PA for 6 weeks while they were away, and we expect to be here longer while my father rehabs from hip replacement, which could take months or even a year.)

New clinches:
US 322 Business (State College PA), US 322 Business (West Chester PA), PA 23 Alternate Truck (King of Prussia), PA 25, PA 85, PA 113, PA 162, PA 225, PA 313, PA 401, PA 413, PA 842, PA 926, MD 155, MD 156, MD 276, MD 462, MD 542

New almost-clinches:
US 209 in PA (missing only the PA side of the bridge to NY)
US 422 Business (Kittanning PA, now missing only about 3 blocks in the middle)
PA 352 (missing the few blocks south of I-95)
MD 41 (missing the stub north of I-695)
MD 147 (missing the part through a park that's currently closed)

New mileage that isn't a clinch or near-clinch:
I-99 in PA, US 15 in PA, US 30 in PA, US 40 in MD, US 119 in PA, US 219 in PA, US 220 in PA, US 220 Business (Altoona PA), US 322 in PA, US 322 Truck (West Chester PA), PA 3, PA 8, PA 28, PA 36, PA 41, PA 45, PA 53, PA 54, PA 58, PA 64, PA 66, PA 82, PA 93, PA 108, PA 152, PA 210, PA 263, PA 268, PA 308, PA 472, PA 611, PA 642, PA 764, PA 841, PA 924, PA 954, PA 970, MD 22, MD 132, MD 222

That was six or seven separate trips all condensed into one composite list. I'll get these changes into github soon as I can. Next expected trip is for a long-delayed family funeral in NJ a few weeks from now. Everyone stay safe out there.

I presume that it was still closed when you tried to clinch it.  I believe that it is reopen now.

I just finished the return leg of my latest trip to South Dakota. This took me down to west Texas, then through Louisiana (with a major reroute) to get back home.

On my way to Texas, I clinched the set of toll roads and other freeways that OkDOT would like to stitch together into an expanded I-240 beltway around Oklahoma City. In Texas, my goal was to finish off US 290 and US 190. I got the former, but Hurricane Ida closed parts of US 190 I needed to clinch between Baton Rouge and Covington LA. So I drove the uncovered portions of US 190 in Louisiana west of Baton Rouge, then turned north toward Shreveport and Little Rock to dodge the hurricane damage.

Salt Lake City/Soda Springs/Jackson Hole mileage:
ID: US 89, ID 34 (clinch), ID 61 (clinch)
UT: UT 93
WY: US 26, US 89 (clinch), WY 89 (clinch), WY 239 (clinch)

To be honest, not clinching Utah 93 is almost as impressive as clinching it.

A recent trip to visit my ailing mother-in-law in central Kansas afforded the opportunity to get a few new miles.

Flying into MCI, and heading to visit we added the following routes: MO US69, KS US69, KS KS32 (clinch), KS US24, KS US59, KS KS4.

From there to visit a friend in northwest Arkansas, we added: KS US77, KS US54, KS US69, KS US69BusPit, MO MO171, MO MO249 (clinch), MO I-49, MO US71, AR US71 (and a few concurrencies).

Returning to MCI: MO I-49 (clinch), MO US71.
