Wow your husband just got to Solano and he's on a yard? My husband got there in May and he's still in the gym. Do you know why that is? But he usually calls me everyday, but i haven't heard from him since Saturday. I'm wondering if he has been moved. In the gym he was on the phone all the time. I do know he is level 3. Please advise.
Thank you,
Nina

I hate to tell you this, but the Northerners on yard 1 (buildings 1-6) have been on lockdown since July 2004. No, that's not a typo. It's been 2 years now.

Yard 3 doesn't have lockdowns very often. You should be fine visiting.

It depends on how he designated himself, as black or other.

If he's in a gym on level 3, then he is on yard 2. Yard 2 is buildings 1-12 and H dorm (which is the gym).

Hi Ladies, my husband just called me tonight, but only for 8 minutes before they made him get off. He said yard 1 buildings 1-6 are still pretty much on lockdown. They let some blacks off of lockdown, and will let more off in a week or two. I still receive mail, got 3 letters last week and he is still recieving also. He said there was a small riot in there the other day. Hope everyones loved one is doing good.

H dorm is the gym on Yard 2. It depends on the race of your man if they are locked down alot. Yard 2 is level 3. There are more lockdowns on level 3 than on level 2. The northern mexicans on yard 1 have been locked down for over 2 years now. It seems like the races locked down the most often are the mexican races. You can always call the hotline 800-374-8474 (press 1, then 2, then 3 for Solano) to find out the lockdown status before you go visit. Just remember, that can change at any moment. It bit me today. They changed it at 1 am and I didn't check before I went so I made a trip for nothing. :(

Yes, he can have contact visits. The only time you get non-contact visits is when he's in the hole.

The visiting CO's are mostly jerks. There are a few who are decent, but they are very few. Ms Lee, in particular, is really nice and professional, but she works the desk in the entrance building, not in the visiting room. I haven't visited on the level 3 side in awhile so I can't tell you about the visiting CO's on that side anymore. The ones in there before left something to be desired.

Visiting is sat and sunday 8-3:15 right now. We're supposed to get Fridays back soon, but they're dragging their feet.

Letters are tough to say anything about. There have been times when it's taken as long as 4 weeks for my husband to receive his mail. That hasn't happened in awhile though. In fact, he's getting stuff really fast right now. He got one letter from me on Friday night that I mailed on Wed. Now that's fast! His letters out go much quicker. I will usually get something on Friday that he mails on Wednesday. Of course though there are lots of letters I've never got. He sent 2 anniversary cards recently that haven't arrived. They like to steal his art.
