Did you get to drive near Logan, NM, on US 54 on the new Canadian River Bridge?

Yes, but I had to take the old bridge since the new bridge is not open yet.

When the new bridge opens, will you count that as a de-clinch?

No, since I've clinched the entire route from El Paso to Illinois. If something happens in between the endpoints, like a new bridge, I'll consider a route re-clinchable, but won't remove it from my list of clinched routes. Given that you can see the new bridge from the old one, it seems that someone could ignore the replacement without losing any sleep, but as for me, I will probably consider it reclinchable and add it to my .list as "YYNM US54 *OldUS54_S *OldUS54_N" or whatever you decide to call the points.

Just picked up CA 41 from Astacedro to Morrow Bay, and clinched Biz 1 Cuyacos. Planning on CA 41 out to 46, 46 back to Paso Robles, the entirety of 229, and 58 back to US 101 for tomorrow.

On Day 1 of a 6 day trip to escape New England.  Ultimate destinations are DC and Norfolk, both to visit friends.  Attempting to fill in some clinch gaps in between, though I have to be strategic, realistic, and limited in my gains both due to time/distance and since I already have the high-speed routes in between.

That said, today I was able to fill in CT 175, CT 71A, CT 364, CT 42, NY 6N, NY 45, and the new US 206 Hillsborough (NJ) Bypass.

Picked up portions of CA 41, 46, 58, and the entirity of 229 today. The southern 5.25 miles of 229 are all a one-lane road, which was fun to drive.

I now only lack the southernmost 3 miles of I-95 to complete the Florida portion.

Yep sounds like me, ntallyn, except I had no control of what the charter bus I was on drove us to.   :D

I finally after 2 attempts finished Indiana's Interstates (Earlier attempt did succeed in finally finishing the elusive I-70 to get Illinois).

That is until 2024.

Also have closed the large swath of missing US-52 in IN and OH (the latter through Cincy) - so between Jamestown ND and Huntington WV is cleared (there are multiple sections that I have in VA and NC including the wrong-way interstate section.
Completed:
* Systems: WI
* by US State: AR: I; AZ: I; DE: I; DC: I,DC; IL: I; IN: I; IA: I, KS: I; MA: I, MI: I; MN: I; MO: I; NE: I; NJ, I; RI: I; SD: I; WA: I; WI: I,US,WI; (AR, IN, MO pending expansions.)

Back in Portland.
Field checked most of US 101's business loops, picked up CA 211 in Ferndale, white knuckles 299 from Arcata to Redding, got the northern end of 273, the southern end of 5B/99H in Dunsmuir, 5B/97/99H/265 in Weed, and 5B in Yreka. Saving 96, 263, 3 to Montague, the southern bit of 273 for a future trip.

In Oregon, verified and reclinched the eastern end of 238. The old Main St alignment in Medford is mileposted, however, so some research needed there.

I am in the process of moving from Grovetown, Georgia (just west of Augusta) back to Jacksonville, Florida (where I previously lived from 2003 to 2011).  I had to take a carload of stuff and then come back to clean my place, pack up the rest of my stuff, take donations, sell stuff, and shut off my utilities.

On my way down (on Memorial Day), I drove on GA 121 for two reasons.  One, I wanted to clinch the rest of the highway, since I had been on portions of it before.  Two, since it isn't a major highway for most of its path, it would most likely have less traffic.  So, I now have the entire length of the highway clinched, plus the concurrent highways along its path.

On my way back up, I was much more ambitious.  I took US 90 from just west of downtown Jacksonville west to Lake City, US 41 from Lake City to Jasper, US 129 from just south-southeast of Jasper all the way to Hawkinsville, Georgia, US 129 Alt. (and US 341) from Hawkinsville to Cochran, GA 26 from Hawkinsville (or is it Hartford, that area is so confusing) to East Dublin, US 319 from Dublin to Wrightsville, GA 15 from Wrightsville to Sandersville, GA 24 and GA 540 from Sandersville to Wrens, US 221 from Wrens to Harlem, and Harlem-Grovetown Road from Harlem to Grovetown.

I got a lot of highways for the first time and added some mileage on others.

Daytrip down to Boston today to see my mother who was in town.  In the process, managed to finish a number of routes, including US 3, MA 2, MA 3A, and MA 111.

Took a quick weekend trip to Savannah.
Clinched I-16 and I-516.
Added I-75 through Macon (previously the only piece missing between Tampa and Cincinnati) to finish off the GA Interstates - my 2nd state to do so.
Also added mileage on US17 (GA and SC), 21 (SC) and 278 (GA and SC).

I've done some travels around Newry in Northern Ireland lately.

I went out to the city for shopping, clinching the B30 (except for one short spur at the end) and making more progress on the A25. I later went on a caravan holiday. Although I'd already been on most the roads to the campsite, the B180 was nearby and was used, as was the A50. I later took the A2 to a different campsite and drove a significant portion of said road.

EDIT: I later clinched the R175 and travelled part of the R173 by using the Carlingford Lough ferry to take the caravan home after my mother and brother's extended stay.

I went on a trip to southeast Utah this past weekend - a portion of the state I've never really spent much time in before. I clinched a whole lot of routes including US 163 and Utah 211, 261, 316, 275, and 95. Also picked up some substantial mileage on US 191 and Utah 24 in the process. I have to say 95 is absolutely amazing and is probably my second favorite drive in the whole state after only Utah 12.
