In North Tonawanda, I made a wrong turn onto the NY429 truck route, which is very short, but clearly signed.  It connects NY265/384 to NY429 along Robinson and Oliver streets.  I'm not sure whether that's worthy of adding to the site.

Any mention of NY Truck Routes quickly becomes  :pan:

Took a brief overnight trip with the wife to Reading PA.

New clinches are MD 147, PA 724 and US 301 (MD, reclinch with new Nice Bridge). New mileage on PA 63, PA 23 and PA 472.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t post such a minor trip but was important because the MD 147 clinch gives me their entire posted primary route system. Also it was first ride of length since my stroke and it demonstrated I can drive multiple hours without issue. Will likely go back to solo clinching trips sometime but may be while before 17 hour rides return.

Congrats on the statewide clinch, and for overcoming the stroke! Really good to know you're feeling up to the challenge of driving again.

A trip to south Florida at the beginning of the month was looking good for clinching...until a late start on Friday (and traffic) cut short some opportunities.

Heading south on I-95, miles were added on FL 46, FL 405, FL 3, FL 520, FL A1A (Vero Beach), FL 404, FL 508, FL 716, FL 706, and several parts of US 1 between these routes.

Then I was planning on some collecting Saturday morning, but found out the hotel had double-booked their convention center (and my event was the one that got moved), but they never informed (at least) me, who had booked with the group rate. I was able to get a little bit of FL 794 and US 1 on the round-trip to the new event location.

Returning home on Sunday, I was able to get the remainder of FL 794, more of US 1, FL 809, FL 706, FL 68, FL 713, FL 614, FL 607, and FL 60.

Then, last weekend, a quick trip to the Orlando area allowed collecting FL 44, FL 44 Bus (New Smyrna Beach), FL A1A (NSB), and FL 442.

Next trip will be to Ohio (no chance of anything new), then south Florida in June (perhaps I can get a little bit there).

I did clinch FL 716 as part of my Florida trip last month, but I was a bit saddened that I did not do FL 706 with it being in the section of Florida's Turnpike right next to I-95.

My summary of the Columbus, OH, Meet Trip from earlier this month can be seen at the following link:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1666DgU6D7g4if3fKICkkFm2pn_YN5KdbBKFKgX2UHVU/edit?usp=sharing

More central and western New York for me this spring.  I went out and back this week for a meeting a SUNY Brockport.  On the way out, it was just the Thruway to Geneva, then I drove down NY 14A then along Keuka Lake on New York 54 to Bath (with a short side trip to drive one clinchable segment of New York 230, just because).  Then a little New York 415 to a tiny piece of I-86 then my missing segment of I-390 up to Geneseo.  From there, New York 63 to New York 36 to New York 33A to New York 19 and in.  On the way back home, I started with a little loop near Brockport, New York 104 west to New York 237, then New York 18 east to Rochester.  A little loop back north to the Lake Ontario State Parkway for a mile or so to New York 390 (and a gas stop).  Then it was I-490 to the Inner Loop to get to the north end of New York 96, which I took to New York 65, then cut across to I-590/New York 590 to get to New York 286.  I drove that for the first time and went end-to-end.  New York 350 South from there to New York 31, which I took east for all new miles to Lyons, finished off a segment of New York 14 to get back to the Thruway for the ride home (with the usual hop up to Cicero for Wegman's and Chick-fil-A).  The 4-hour ride each way ended up taking about 6 hours with my routes that focused on getting some new miles.

Overall, I added about 225 new miles, enough to get my active-only total over 100,000 miles.  Finishing off I-390 closed my only gap in New York usai outside of NYC and Long Island. 

Everything else new was in usany (though with a tiny usausb overlap).

First travels: NY 19, NY 31F, NY 39, NY 65, NY 230, NY 237, NY 261, NY 272, NY 286, NY 350, NY 415
Other new miles: NY 14, NY 14A, NY 18, NY 21, NY 31, NY 33A, NY 36, NY 53, NY 54, NY 63, NY 96, NY 104, NY 259, NY 408
New clinches: NY 53, NY 286

^ There's 2 Wegman's not far from the Thruway that don't require traipsing north of 481 (granted, neither has a Chik-Fil-A nearby).

Once our more local CFAs open this year, the Cicero stop will likely become less of a priority and I'll get to know the more convenient Wegman's locations.

It's a little crazy how often I've had the need/opportunity to visit or pass through CNY and WNY in the past year: Ithaca in May, WB toward Yellowstone in July, EB from Yellowstone in August, Ithaca in September, Greek Peak in December, Snow Ridge in January, ride back from Toronto in March, Ithaca in April, Brockport in April.  I feel like I've been to the Cicero Wegman's as often as I've been to my local grocery stores, and I can't think of any local restaurant I've been to in the last year as many times as I've been to the Cicero CFA.

Nothing in the works right now that would take me west in the coming months, but who knows.

There's also, of course, the service area CFA locations.  Iroquois, Chittenango, and Clifton Springs are open, with Plattekill looking like it will open soon.  Looks like Pattersonville will have one too, so it will be right on your commute.

On the way back to PA from VA today, I finished clinching VA 20, drove VA 151 from the north end of its VA 6 concurrency to its new roundabout at US 250, clinched Skyline Dr in the fog, and then went into WV via Corridor H to clinch WV 29.  No new mileage was added to any other route.  I believe that all I need to have everything in VA in Travel Mapping clinched north of I-64 now is VA 39 and VA 127.

Later on in PA, I took I-76 EB from US 522 NB and drove the wrong way through the Kittatinny Mountain Tunnel and the Blue Mountain Tunnel as two-way traffic was in the westbound tunnel.  Farther west, two-way traffic at the Tuscarora Mountain Tunnel was in the eastbound tunnel.

In the middle of another overnight sojurn into Upstate NY, though with an extra state added this time.

Until this morning, I had only 4 road segments left in Massachusetts west of I-91.  Got to 2 of them today, clinching both MA 102 and MA 116 in the process.

Then I dipped down into the Catskills before making my way up to Utica to have dinner with a college classmate, making my way up to Fort Drum after dinner.  Not as many clinches as a few weeks ago, but I still managed to finish 12D, 51, 177, 205, and 233.

Tomorrow will probably find me covering as much as I can across the North Country before I have to turn tail and head home.

Just got home from Day 2.  Didn't do nearly as much b/c I wound up spending an hour at the Fort Drum Commissary stocking up on dry goods (and also found Mexican Coke).  Which put me behind from my initial plan...so between that and having a rough night of sleep I decided to cut a bunch of my plan today to get home at a reasonable hour.  I did manage to clinch a couple more North Country routes (NY 11B, NY 68) and added mileage to a few others.

My trip summary from my trip to western PA last weekend can be seen here.  (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vfskdta22YwPkjGDJoWBGlatrTtaBydR/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=113767197079604225034&rtpof=true&sd=true)

EDIT (5-27-2023):  I reclinched MD 97 earlier today due to the Brookeville Bypass having opened about a week ago.  I would have not even noticed that Brookeville was even there had I been clinching MD 97 for the first time.

I also clinched a few unsigned MD routes (430, 431, 433, 852 (Mexico), 927 and 950).  MD 950 being the most notable for being the access from US 50 and MD 704 to the New Carrollton Metro Station (and maybe having speed humps on it).  Edited again to add MD 927 and then again for MD 852 (Mexico).
