Toss it in neutral a grab a 4 or 5 stripe draft, use 5th gear DFCO and AC if you need to slow down.

I have seen downhill grades of 7% for several miles around Blacksburg Va, probably a lot like WVa.

Ever gone downhill on a two lane at speeds that scare you with a logging truck on your arse?

Slow down and die.

Hit your brakes and become a postage stamp.

Those guys are CRAZY!
