OH to TX - Off Road Places

I finally got around to making my Jeep into a Toad and we have two upcoming trips this year so far. One in March to take the kids to Disney World and get down there as quickly as possible...probably one stop there and back. However, when we go to Houston in April, I want to take it nice and slow there and back.

So far, I started planning with Good Sam's planner, but nothing set in stone. We will be leaving 4/17 late afternoon and probably drive a couple of hours. Then two or three more over night stays before we get to Houston.

We love taking our Jeep Rubicon off road and will like to stay in places where we can go have fun. I know, eventually we will make it out west where there is more to do, but I'm sure there are some places along the way that will be fun to go wheeling or sightseeing.

Any recommendations will be appreciated .

Most Texas land is privately owned but there a few places to drive right along the coast. Not a challenge for a Rubi unless you rigged it with grave diggers (heavy tread) as they just dig the sand out from underneath the Jeep. But if you get in the Black Gumbo you cannot move without the big tread tires. If cruising the coast you will not find the gumbo on the beach side and you are not allowed on the dunes as that is the only thing that keeps the big storms at bay. I prefer the run from Corpus to Mansfield on South Padre Beach. Few travel that area as it is four wheel only, so there is some unusual beach combing there as there are little things that wash up as well as sixty five foot shrimp boats to ocean bouys. Also it is an area of Spanish ship wrecks and gold and silver coins and bars have been found from time to time. Remember it is a National Park and you cannot take a metal detector nor can you keep any items of historic value you find so I am sure if you find a gold bar or two you will turn it in right away. The back side of the dunes can be a Jeep eater the only people I know that travel that area run the big trucks that could easly qualify for monster trucks. Anyway it is about sixty five miles from the four wheel only sign on Park RD 22 to the Mansfield Jetties, there is no cross over so you have to turn around and drive back. Full fuel and ice chest with water and food there are no services.

Thanks for the reply. Oh, you brought back many memories at the beach. I actually grew up in Houston and why we are heading down to see my Dad and brother. We won't be doing any exploring there since I'll be spending time with them. I was thinking more along the route from OH to TX. You know, drive 6 hours, stop and explore the area.
