    Running frac sand around north east pa there was some 2 lanes where we were down to the low side. Pa 409 is one of them roads. Something like a 12% grade with a sharp corner starting up the hill. The types of roads where its much safer at night because you can see the headlights coming around a corner Lol

    On the Ohio side by Wv along the Ohio River off of Rt 7 is Ohio Rt 255, 15% grade with switchbacks going all the way to the top. 3rd gear was all you got. All around that area is some of the wildest country I've been on

    I remember a hill in PA once about 10 years ago. Somewhere E or SE of Pittsburg. All I remember is going 4mph in low gear downhill and still kept speeding up riding brakes occasionally

    I hope you weren’t typing while having your morning constitution. That’s unhealthy and you could end up with irritable bowel syndrome.

    To avoid that kind of misery, all of your attention and focus should be on the task at hand; the successful delivery of the morning constitution.
