We had three warnings
about the upcoming down hill grade
Miles of 6% grade with lots of curves.
Imagine the heavily loaded old trucks with no Jake or air brakes...Yikes!!

Things got a little turned around and Keith had to back up his KW. Four speeds in reverse...this things goes backwards faster than than a hound dog after a rabbit. Reverse and back up was Keith's choice. The next thing I knew we were going backwards faster than we had been going forwards.
