    There's a place in Houston called Spring Creek with plenty of mud, forest trails and river crossings, you may be familiar with it already, if not I have the directions to it somewhere.
    Also a place called Crosby supposedly has plenty of truck eating mud holes.
    Also there's a lot of Houstonians in the tx4x4.com mailing list.

    Good luck

    I sure can, I'm in Dallas so I have not actually been there with a 4x4 but I did save the directions from someone that posted them.

    It is in North Houston next to I-45, here's what they wrote:
    "I'm sure everyone can get to I-45 and FM1960. You want to head East on FM1960,
    so if you are heading North on I-45 and exit for FM1960, turn Right onto FM1960.
    Go over the Hardy Toll Road and make a Left onto Aldine-Westfield Rd. There
    will be a Potato Patch Restaurant on your right. Make your first Left, which I
    think is at the first light. You will be staying on Aldine-Westfield this way.
    Continue down Aldine-Westfield quite a ways until it ends. Then take Left and
    an immediate Right. You will not be going across the Railroad tracks, but
    rather following them. I think this road is E. Hardy Rd. Follow this until you
    go under a large overpass and leave the concrete. There are two paths off to
    your right both following either side of a large ditch. You can take either
    one, we usually take the second one, so go through the mud hole (it is not too
    deep) and go off to your right. There is a drop off that is driveable and goes
    straight into the Creek. Cross the Creek and you are on First Beach.

    This is a safe way to enter and exit the Creek. You can leave your trailering
    rigs out on the concrete, if necessary. You should see a lot of 4x4s, ATVs, and
    people congregating. There are trails all around. If you don't come with
    anyone who's been there before, ask around and there are always people ready to
    go trail running."

    Some Tx4x4 list members are meeting at First Beach this saturday at 10:00AM, they should be in CB channel 4. It seems about 4-5 trucks.
