Anything to do in Fort Hood?

Just got orders to move to Hood in February. It doesn't look like there's much of anything to do there. There was a thread on here that says there's pretty much zero legal off roading any where around there, so that's out. It's all flat, so downhill mountain biking is out. It's hot, so snowboarding is out. And it's a million miles from the water, so surfing is out.

Is there anything to do there? The 50,000+/- people there have to do something to entertain themselves...

I PCS'd from Hood in "92 but back then, you could call Range Control and sign in to the current "desiginated" off-road training area. Man, I used to LOVE getting an area after 2nd AD went through with the M1's and Bradleys. Those things really make some nice mud holes.

See if Sam's Doll House is still there in Killeen.
I ETS's from there in 2001, and lived in Killeen for another year and a half, so I'm sure stuff has changed. Golden Dragon had the best Rainbow fried rice (pork, beef, and chicken), and they had a heck of a collection of coins on the wall, too.
Didn't have a jeep back then, so I don't know about legal wheeling, but the places I took my 1026 put some of the stuff near me to shame. I launched the HMMWV about 6 feet in the air, came down hard on right rear (tore hole in tire) and then the left front (bent the rim/flat tire), then had to drive about 15 clicks back to the TOC, all with the LT hanging on for dear life.
He had a YJ, yet he complained about riding in the HMMWV with me.
