Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

I posted this on Facebook TKF, so I figured that should post it here too. Every trip to PINS I see people with no clue doing some really inconsiderate things, so I contemplated making an etiquette video. Then in my overlanding group newbies started asking for tips. So I put this together... PINS is a special place to many of us and one of my favorite places to camp.

That is one cool video. Am taking my brother to PINS shortly just the two of us in my Jeep. Armed with a couple fishing rods, some snacks and couple chairs. It truly is a sacred place.
I always am armed with trash bags.

Thanks, Tombo... in hindsight I'd go back and change a few things, but that bridge burnt after 50 views :)

Nice video.

The trucks driving fast and not slowing down (enough) when passing others on the beach really ticks me off. It has gotten much worse in my opinion in the last few years. I chalk it up to the continuing erosion of basic courtesy towards others and the fixation of "its all about me" people have.

Lack of awareness also that driving past a camp at 40-50 mph, even 20 yards away will blow an a$$ load of sand all up into camps set up next to the dunes. Multiply that by 50-100 vehicles driving past and it can make for a pretty cruddy experience in your camp.

When passing others, give space and slow down. There is plenty of open vacant stretches where you can channel your inner Ricky Bobby if you so desire.

Nice video Boomy. I've never noticed the north bound right of way sign but was taught a long time ago that whoever has the water on their right, has right of way. There always seems to be someone who doesn't get it.

It's definitely gotten worse as more and more traffic finds its way down the island.

Thanks guys..

I was informed of the misspelling after 50 views. I figured that it wouldn't get many more so why bother starting over with a new upload? As of this morning it's gotten 730 views... had I known...

NoSharks- honestly on every trip I had noticed the speed sign beside it, but never the right away sign until my last trip down.

Yes it has gotten worse I went with my wife and 2 kids last month and as we were packing up camp some guy stopped right in front of our camp and he saw my dog run out there up to him because he stopped and I waved him down and said let me get my dog before you drive off he threw his hands in the air and ran my dog over and took off right in front of my girls 5 yrs old and 2 yrs old killing the dog and he noticed he ran it over and sped off.........
