Vehicles "In Tow" on Sundays on 59

I always see these groups of trucks and other vehicles towing other vehicles loaded to the max traveling southbound on Hwy 59 on Sundays arround 5-7 PM. Anybody know the story? Just curious. One had bikes yesterday, couldn't tell you what they were though as they were inside a truck.

I suspected, but is there a reason they always do it on Sundays and at the same time same route? It is odd...and from their condition on some of them I am surprised if they will make the journey...I have seen school buses, dump trucks, cars, and loaded to the max with all kinds of stuff...

They go sunday because there's less traffic. Honestly, I've seen them all days of the week. Always at odd hours.

They get coked up and drive their off. I used to run the same route weekly when I worked in Corpus. If you stopped at the same station as them to , you could witness all the snorting. There would be 15 skins in the bathroom tooting it up at the same time.

Well, all our leftover crappy cars gotta go somewhere, right?
Now we just gotta fill the back with illegals and stop everybody from coming across, northbound.

When I lived in Rosenberg, I would see these everyday driving home.

They would always be driving 10 under the speed limit or pulled over on the side of the road, halfway in the right lane holding up traffic. Very annoying.
