Using the above technique requires you to use Via Points so that the Route in BaseCamp goes exactly where you want it to when converted to a Direct Route and back to an along-road route. To obtain the right number/placement of Via Points can require you to switch Routing Activities several times in BaseCamp while you are creating the route. I don't do this very often either but I always send a Track along with my Route to the Montana.
