Hi Montequie,
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my posting.....He was also transfered form CCI (who knows maybe they were transfered together) what is msf?....I heard if you were approved at CCI (being a state facility) that your visitation approval goes with him to where ever he goes.....I got a call from him yesterday it was sooo nice to get to hear his voice (but enough about that) yeah allways having to wait and not knowing.....the story of my life right now..... well I hope to hear from you again soon.....

Ladies,
Best of luck to all of you. Strength and patience are our best defenses it seems. I am really happy to have found a good support of others going through what I am. I just signed onto pt yesterday when my baby was sent out to Lancaster- but from county - Does anyone know how long the reception is out there? - Can they make calls while in reception? Right now I am hoping he can at least send me the visitor form (signed) so I can start the process of being able to go see him.

can't make calls in reception and he will be there anywhere between 30-120 days. You can visit him after you get approved, but its only through the glass for an hour

hi all in response to the question about reception, ITS A LONG WAIT believe me my
fiancee was in reception since august 29 to february 4 or 5,almost 7 months, he was at cci (tehachapi) and was transfered to lancaster he is schedule to get out in july 28th but unfortunately im still waiting for visits i know it sucks but i guess thats just how this damn system works i called the prison and they said my approval is still pending and it pisses me off 'cause this is the third one i send. like my baby said "dont forget im in prison and they always find something to make us miserable"
oh well i guess thats what we have to deal with, well good luck to all take care and GOD bless . and patience lots and lots of patience.

my boyfriend has been at lancaster for less than a month. he is in reception and im wonderin does it take long for him to get my letters because he is in reception or is it because im out of state. and is there anway i can call and find out if he has already received my letter

my boyfriend has been at Lacaster since april 13th - i received two letters both on wednesday of last week. To keep from going to crazy I have been reading a lot of posts by the wonderful people here on PTO. It seems to be that some people get letters from inside while others wait and wait - and for others they get letters but their loved ones inside are waiting. The best we can do is be patient - continue sending our love and prayers. I don't think it is so much that you are out of state - but that they have a lot of mail to sort through. I hope the best for you and your man. Stay strong for both your sakes.

Do they still only have 3 ( or is it 4?) booths to visit in? My husband left that yard before it went to reception and I never could figure out how the prison was going to handle the visiting behind glass :(

for those of you that have visited Tehachapi, which one is better in your opinion... Tehachapi or Lancaster? on your perspective. Then on your significant others?

05-20-2006, 01:30 PM
i think tehachapi might be better for reception visting wise from what mt friend says. lancaster reception visting is wack in my opinion

05-23-2006, 11:17 AM
My baby went to Lancaster on 4/13 - I get his letters about 3 or so days after we writes them - so not much different than what mail seems to be lately - however it takes about 3 weeks for him to get my letters.
I think the mailing addresses vary to where they are located - I am sending mail to a PO Box 4490

Hi Lulicity, I have a son in Lancaster, he arrived there on 9/22. I sent in my visiting form about 2 weeks ago but no word yet so it's only letters for us right now.

My husband is in reception at lancaster and got there in September of this year also. I am very discouraged looking at how long some of your guys were there until they were mainlined. 6 months is a long time. hopefully with this new system of shipping people out that Arnold put into affect, he might get out of there faster.
I miss him. I cannot wait until i get approved for visiting...

hi all!

my boyfriend is there and just transfered a couple of weeks ago from another prison--he is in minimum section but i am getting his mail and he is not getting mine--he was mainlined last week--shouldn't he have received my mail by now--i have been writing every other day since 10.6:confused: :confused: :mad:

Lulicity
10-19-2006, 10:17 PM
Hi Dedicated Mama and MrsCarpenter,
I hope your visitation forms get approved faster than mine did, which was about a month or so. And yes reception does take a long time! Seven months for my guy. I had heard about Arnold wanting to ship out inmates due to the overcrowding, but not much else. I know I said I have a loved one in Lancaster and I was about to go visit him in reception this Saturday, but I got a letter from him today saying he got transferred to a CCF...:(
Just when I was about to go visit him and spent all this time finding out information, he gets moved.:blah:

Well girls, it seems like I'm in the same boat once again since I have to send a new form!! Talk to you ladies soon. Take care and Best Wishes to you:wave:

Lulicity
10-19-2006, 10:21 PM
Hey T_r818,
Sorry to hear about the mail situation. I read in some threads here that a lot of inmates were getting transferred to Lancaster, for whatever reason. I've only had to deal with reception mail and it is s l o w.
It would take 3-4 weeks for him to get it! Anyway good luck to you , and hope the mail situation gets better because god knows we need to hear from our men, and soon!!:p

Sorry to hear this... this is what happened to me. I got approved to see him at Donovan, then he went and got transfered the Wednesday before I could see him to Desert View MCCF. Then I had to wait another month to get approved there and finally got to see him after going 3 months!

Hello
I was wondering how visiting was this past weekend at Lancaster. I'm planning to go this Saturday to visit in "C" yard, and I was wondering if it's going to be crowded since they are moving them to Donovan. Any info. is very helpful.
Thanks
