Our neighbors for tonight are Gary and Sharon McMullen. They own a quaint well keep RV Park named Silver Wind RV Park and Cabins in Silverton, Texas.
Jeff first met Mr. Gary last week when Jeff showed up at his RV Park with 4 loads of laundry. Silver Wind was not full at the time and Mr. Gary graciously let Jeff wash/dry our clothes. Oh, Mr. Gary we were very thankful. The laundry room has 5 washers, 6 dryers, a laundry sink, laundry folding area and private bathroom. Jeff returned to the bus raving about how clean the laundry and the entire park was kept.
This is what prompted us to stay a night with The McMullen’s and check out their park firsthand. Upon arriving today, we met both Mr. Gary and his lovely wife Sharon. They came over and introduced themselves and gave us some advice about the area. They have grandchildren, so they welcome children and are not bothered by their questions or loud playing. They said that the children could ride bikes or play ball in the grass. Mrs. Sharon said, “act like you are at home.” Wow, we don’t hear that often!
After the children played in the grassy area, rode bikes and burned off lots of energy it was time for dinner and baths. Silver Wind has one women’s shower and one men’s shower. They are not handicap accessible but considering that you have full hookups a person with a disability could take a shower in their RV. I had no problem giving Katie (our special needs daughter) a shower. The shower area has a toilet and sink. Each shower room has it’s own code to get in and a slide lock on the inside of the door. The shower area looked just like one in a private home. It was shiny and clean with lots of light, a fan and even a small heater if needed. Mrs. Sharon, I think we might owe you a little more because I took way too long in the shower! I know that I used more water than the normal person. Oh, the luxury of taking a shower without someone interrupting me. (They didn’t have the code!)
