Members from Club HUMMER Offroad and the Texas Gulf Coast HUMMER Owners Group (TGCHOG) joined together over the weekend to take on Texas 87. This road, if you can call it that, used to run from the Port Arthur area along the coast all the way to the Bolivar Peninsula near Galveston.
The group left from Galveston and took the ferry over to High Island, a fairly desolate area but with paved roads. About 20 miles down is where the road was closed down and there were several signs warning against through-traffic.
After years of hurricanes and neglect, only small portions of the road still exist. In most parts, the only evidence of a road ever being there are a few square feet chunks of asphalt. While the area is mostly flat, there were some rocks, mud, and washboard areas that gave the trucks a little adventure for a Sunday afternoon run amongst 25 other HUMMERs.
We should be receiving some more action shots in the muddier areas soon – until then, enjoy these shots (Some courtesy of Club HUMMER Offroad member Steve#1 – the ‘founder’ of this trip).
