Ok folks how about the same weekend of the Ouray run sence most of us here cant go there lets go to Matagorda for the weekend. Let me know what you all think.
07-16-2002, 04:47 AM
Matagorda for a weekend or Freeport for a day-trip would be cool with me.
I'd be down for meeting some of the texas folks, especially if yall end up in freeport / surfside, only a 4-5 hour drive or so.
(That is, as soon as I get the beast running again.... smile.gif )

I am new to the Houston area and would love to get together with other FSJ owners. I am planning on going to Ouray though (just moved from Utah and spent the last two years at the Ouray check rides and I just cant miss it!) I have a '91 GW.

Welcome to houston and the club GilGar, the date for our little get together is still up in the air as far as i can tell. :confused:
07-26-2002, 02:23 AM
Well if you all are not getting together during the Ouray invasion then I will definately join you all.

hehe like you need another excuse to get lower gas mileage!
Seriously, the jeep is now fixed, rebuilt dist and ignition module - ready to go to the beach.
You guy's ever consider meeting somewhere north of Houston...might be a bit less humid the first week of August :D
BTW, I've been meeting with my Cummins diesel bud's for the last two years. We started out meeting for breakfast and talking "trucks" in the parking lot. We still meet for breakfast and often cararam to someones house to make repairs or upgrade. It's alway's nice to have a few extra tools and hands around.
Is there any place north or west of Houston that you can legally go offroad?

243 the only close place i know is like Gilmer or ledgewater or shilo up north.that the reason we were thinking the coast good for day use.
Don't get me wrong, it works for me...I live in Clear Lake so it would be a lot shorter trip for me than the rest of ya'll :D
08-01-2002, 05:14 AM
Okay, there's interest.. so how about August 24th (a Saturday) for Freeport for a day trip. We can even go peek at thse 4 J-trucks sitting near the still water.
David, there are VERY few places north of where you are that are legal. Fuqua near you used to be, and Spring Creek is slowly getting developed on. Out to the west used to have a place off of I-10 and Grand Parkway, but that's still debatable since signs are still posted.
give me a call when yall get ready to go and i will meet yall in freeport. it is only about 2 miles from where our house is that we are fixing to move into. have to work the weekends of the 10th and 17th but should be off on the 24th. supposed to be moving into the house over the next week so i should be finished unpacking by then. where all do yall go driving at in freeport. surfside or quintana.

If its the 24th should be able to make it let me know when and were to meet

08-20-2002, 03:34 AM

08-22-2002, 07:51 AM
Well I would like to come even though I don't have an FSJ right now (Well I have one but it will never be driveable again). Anyone willing to let me ride with them?
08-22-2002, 09:03 AM
So what is on the agenda for this get together?
Crap, I can't make it this time...I'll catch up with ya'll in the future.
08-22-2002, 02:21 PM
