Pins = Paradise/Fish haven

Plan your drive down during low tide, it's like a highway sometimes.
You can turn the 6 hour+ drive to Mansfield into a 2 hour drive on the low road during low tide.

I usually go there at least once a month sometimes more.

PINS is one of the reasons why I’ve been wanting to move back home.

Google Kleberg County tides. There should be plenty of info available. IIRC you enter the park in Nueces county but all the good spots are in Kleberg.

You can just go on magicseaweed.com and go off of bob hall pier cause all the info is going to be reletivly the same.

Or a more precise way would be to call this number (361) 949-8175. That's the parks beach conditions line. It gets updates daily too.

I wouldn't worry about the high road being underwater, that usually happens when a storm surge comes through. When it's high tide you just can go on the low road and haul ass through there.

Be sure to have a tire repair kit too cause there is a lot of nasty shit that will puncture your tires down there. I hit something 20 miles down that put a small hole in my tire (stock tires at the time) but I fixed it within 3 minutes with the repair kit, so I could keep truckin along.

The other day couple of friends of mine were talking about making a camping trip out there. Definitely looking forward to taking my truck out there!

I'm your going to PINS. I've been all the way down to the jetties in my '07, only upgrade being larger 256/75 tires(Pic in my avatar). Items to bring: shovel, tow strap, extra gas, fishing supplies I was able to cross at Yarborough Pass without any concern. You'll likely not need the gas, strap or shovel, but better safe than sorry. Have fun!!

All this PINS talk is making me excited. I got 4 day weekend planned for Memorial Day Weekend. I already had planned to go down for fishing in CC area, not sure what spot I’m hitting yet or what day(s).

With the recent rain it seems like as good a day as any to find a mud hole somewhere. Better not get stuck. My buddies flaked on me.

Just moved to Corpus on orders to NAS. I see plenty of Tacos on the base, wondering if they're on TW.
