I know that 270 very well and I can appreciate your anxiety.

of the bush and the danger of a deer or worse a moose, or even worse a

No its finished but it's chip & tar so there are some nasty bits of
gravel that are hard to see being black on black.
I did have a couple of heart stoppers.  Just past the creek/lumber mill
the Peterson road there is a beautiful left hand curve that seems to be 
about 270 degrees.  I was leaned into it when a Chevy pickup pulled out
the bush road on the right.  I couldn't brake so I had to pass him going

blind into the other lane.  The other was on the Rockingham Road,  I
a corner when I thought a black bear had stood up in the ditch--it was a

dark green garbage bag blowing it the breeze, but it tightened my
and doubled my heart rate.
