Depends on where you go. There's mud here and there, plains and rocks. Texas is like a whole other country. Probably some of the nicer terrain is over by the hill country areas about an hour northwest of Austin. Sand? Every heard of our psuedo coastline? I've got buddies from Corpus that like going out on the beach where 4 wheel drives are not only allowed - but mandatory if you expect to drive yourself off the beach. They tell many a tall tale about recovering other 4 wheel drives that were not optimally equiped for driving on sand. Most of them are rear locked with BFG AT or MTs - and of course they sport both front and rear recovery points to drag the Hummers, Rovers and various other vehicles out of the sand....

if you wheel in Texas on public lands, and there are public lands, you need an OHV vehicle permit, even on street legal vehicles...they are 8 bucks a year....they carry a pretty hefty fine if you are on public lands, or private place funded by public grants...

If you're into tattoos, check out "Tattoo Emporium". It's near the base, somewhere in town (maybe in Kempner). My sister-in-law owns the shop.

Thanks Yoda... I'll definately get one. I've looked into the maps but no areas near Austin. Where might I find any other maps that designate public land?

I've been becoming more and more aware of that lately. Must pay... ;-(

I guess I will have to learn to drive better so I can afford it! This way I can avoid unnecessary breakage....

The OHV permit is a yearly thing from valid from Sept 1 through Aug 31. Here's the link where I found the cost and locations to buy....

As for the pay to play locations, their price varies between the locations. Most do offer yearly memberships.
