While driving down Spicewood Springs Road, we traveled over about 8 low water crossings - beautiful. From the IHOP to Onion Creek, it only takes three turns in a modern car.
For us, our fun index was 26 going to Onion Creek, and more getting home.

At this pit stop, a young lady asked for an application for her father
who was moving to Sun City. He has an A, and he joined us later at Onion Creek.

Jim & Billie Cunningham at the first pit stop.

Matching the crews with their cars

We had many vintage visitors around our cars.

This shot gives you an idea of our vantage point.
