Exclamation Down Grades

Been some posts on down hill grades in the past. Branson MO has hit the jack pot, steepest I have ever seen: MO265 rt to MO376, and hang on, actually did this today. DW got the picture as we passed.

Wow, that is steep. I assume this is on a main road. How long is the hill?

I know we have a few steep grades here on our neighborhood, but noton a main road.

My eyes popped out of my head when I saw that first sign. Geez, talk about scary! I sure would not want to take any RV down those hills.

4/10's mile down till it starts to flatten. No exhaust brake, just geared down the automatic 7.3 diesel.
