No, you are correct -- I misremembered the rule, and don't have my stuff available to check.

Why would it take more to travel on the road than off? Mountains cost 3 to enter, but you still get that minor road benefit, so it would cost ... 2 1/2 per hex? 2 per hex? I am having trouble with math right now -- a 4-year old and 7-year old standing behind me as I type, waiting to go out to dinner, don't help... Anyway, the point is that terrain modifiers are not in ADDITION to road -- the road reduces the cost, even if only slightly.

More later.
