Out of curiosity and that being my biggest worry as I'm going to pick up an '06 Monday. Did you check for signs of contamination, have the vehicle inspected somewhere or anything else before buying?

ignor typos from previous post..lol. damn phone. anyway, i did check dipstick and it seemed ok. someone with better knowledge may have caught it. i literally made it less than 50 miles before trans slipped like crazy on highway. so now i have to shell out another 3000 or so to get this fixed. but at least then i wont be worried about it in future. trans and radiator will both be new. this xterra was a cpl thousand cheaper than other ones in area, so im still doin ok i think. ha.. maybe that was another clue?

Glad to meet ya.

In April I am going Camping at Galveston Beach.

Are there any good places to off road near GAlveston?

I heard there is an abandoned road that is on or near the waterline east of Galveston.

Any ideas wo;d be great. Thanks
out on the west end at san luis pass, there are some trails back on the bay side with a few good holes some water crossings depending on the tide. unfortunately a year or two ago the city put up signs saying no camping, no bonfires, no atvs, NO FUN allowed and started enforcing it, running off people on 4wheelers. not sure if they are running people off for camping but not really worth the hassle if they run you out in the middle of the night and having to move camp.

If you go across the toll bridge ($2 i think) over san luis pass on the west end, its pretty much wide open and you can camp and drive anywhere you want.

the abandoned road you've heard of is actually across the ship channel east of bolivar and crystal beach. the road used to run all the way through and connect with the highway a few miles west of the TX/LA border. If you take the ferry from galveston to bolivar peninsula, and then follow hwy 87 east to where it connects with hwy 124 you can see some of the old road still there. this section of road has been abandoned because it kept getting washed out/covered up during storms and inland is a wildlife refuge so they couldn't move the road further inland. depending on the recent weather you can drive on the beach all the way to where 87 connects with Clam Lake road to the east near sea rim state park. from google maps it looks like you can take clam lake road north somewhere in the middle and get back to civilization not on the beach if you had to. it looks like an interesting and possibly challenging drive, i'd like to do it but won't go alone and haven't been able to talk anyone else into going with. there was talk over on expo a couple years back about doing it but it never materialized.

you can probably find some info on the route over on advrider too.
