Anyone got any suggestions for the best route to MSRH coming from the west on I10 pulling a toy hauler? I haven't been down there in a few years and just seeing if any way is better than not these days.

depending on time of day/dislike of stoplights/worries about smooth road/care about tolls:
Skip tolls, bumpy roads, stop lights in areas: turn off at Sealy on 36th
Tolls, smoother road, traffic smoother flowing, but longer "rush hour": take beltway 8 (then 288)

hwy 6, have done twice now.. seemed to be the worse for lights, slow traffic, bumpy roads.
610 (to 288). took once, out of the way, major accident just in front of us, so traffic got hosed.

I hope that helps some I'll be taking hwy 8 mid-day (hopefully by 2 on Thursday) (based on about a dozed trips the last 2.5 years)

From 10 try Beltway 8 (East or South, I cannot remember). 288 South from Beltway 8. About 18 miles south of Beltway 8. There are tolls on Beltway 8.

I would just do the I10 east to 610 south that eventually turns to 610 east then 288 lake Jackson. Not much gets accomplished going the toll except money out of your pocket

I do halfway 8 to 288 if during traffic and 610 to 288 if no traffic (like reverse that coming out on Sunday).

Always an incident, traffic, or road closure in Houston. I check before I head to my next destination.

The best route is any route that takes you to a Gringo's Mexican restaurant for chicken fajitas, then takes you to the track.

We like to stop at the Gringo's in Rosenberg on the way down.

With this thread on my mind, I took the I-10 to route 36 to 288 option. I found a toll that makes the Beltway 8 toll seem insignificant: $350 ticket in Wallis, TX for 50 in a 35 mph revenue zone. I saw the 45 mph sign but missed the 35 mph sign. Also should have gotten the new inspection sticker. Dangit.

FYI if you run the 36 route with a Garmin GPS the speed limit 'warnings' in the Garmin system are wrong for much of that route, both too high and too low (through several Garmin updates over time). Ya gotta watch the posted signs :-0
