Anyone interested in making a go of exploring what used to be Texas State Hwy 87? Say meet in Orange or Port Arthur and try to make it via the old road bed and the beaches to High Island and then on to Galveston for food? http://www.texasfreeway.com/statewide/Statewide/abandoned/TX87_closed/87_eroded.shtml EDIT: Here's the plan so far. Meet at 9am Friday August 3, at the Walmart at: 4999 N Twin City Hwy Port Arthur, TX 77642 http://goo.gl/maps/qHGA Then head out toward Sabine Pass once everyone has arrived, tanked up, and picked up last minute supplies. The plan is that we should finish the run that evening. It is only 20-30 miles, most of it on beach sand. I expect a few obstacles, but nothing that can't be overcome. We'll probably make a few stops to fish. Once we reconnect with the part of Hwy 87 that's good, in High Island, I personally plan to head to Galveston to stay the night. I'm hoping we all head that way for dinner at The Spot together. That being said, I am bringing camping gear to camp on the beach if we run into unforeseen trouble. Since no one we know has been there, and all accounts of the route are several years old and third-hand reports, I reccommend everyone plans for that possibility. Definitely going: Me (J Everett) RATTFINK Roninjiro Metzican (from TNX) I will continue to edit this post when we get more people lined up as definitely going.
