Hey! It's a Solano LadyBaby hollin' back at cha! I have been visiting there for almost a year now and it's been pretty cool. Some of the CO's are cool and some are not. My first visit was the pits because one of the CO's (who doesn't like my man) kept me from seeing him because he had to go to work in two hours. We fixed that though. He now has weekends off. If you don't let them get to you, as they sometimes try, everything will be all good... They we on lock down all of April, so lthe last three weeks have been sooooo super crowded. I mean I was there at 10 and didn't see my man til 1. It usually only takes no more than an hour for the whole processing. Also, since the last weeks have been overcrowded, people have been getting their visits terminated after 1.5 to 2 hours, which truly makes me mad, but you know. Anyway, after this month, things should slow down a bit and be back to normal. Last summer, I would stay there from 8:30 to 3:00pm on weekends without being terminated. I'm sure some more of the ladies will tell you more...When do you plan on making your first visit?

Hey, it's me again. Cars start lining up at about 5 am. and they start handing numbers out at 7 am right at the gate ( an old procedure that they brought back). It's been working pretty well. People who come after 7:30 or so, have to line up and get a number by standing under the "awning" near the processing room. I don't talk too much on the phone to him, but when I do, it seems pretty painless and laid back. In regard to packages, I just order them when he asks, so I'm not sure on how often they get to. I think there is a monthly and a quarterly, but don't quote me on that. I anm sure one of the moderators will get on here and give you the information. As a matter of fact, there is a link with all of Solanos rules. Do a Solano search on here and the information will come up. I hope this helped at least a little....I'll see you there!

just to make a quick mention, there has been alot of issue regarding arriving early and parking on the main roadside waiting for processing to start. the po-po's are standing ready and giving tickets, folks are getting impatient and trying to cut the lines, or not merging well enough over to the soft shoulder to turn right into the drive way which is causing bad feelings with the folks in the city. we are trying to spread the word to not form a line before time so that we can keep the privilege of getting a pass from our cars as opposed to having to drive in, park, get out of the cars and make mad dashes for the awning for the co to pass them out. processing does roll pretty quickly these days but the issue of lining up early is going to cause us trouble big time unless we fix it quickly. if everyone would approach the prison no earlier than 1155 or so on fridays and 0655 or so on sat-sun we will be able to save ourselves and our loved ones some grief, and some money for those that are getting tickets for parking on the main road and doing fancy turns in the middle of the road and stuff. this is just an FYI. welcome to Solano.

Welcome to Solano!!! It really is not all that bad. It's just the overcrowding in the visiting room that is awful!!! Like Ladybaby said, they were on lockdown for a month. Everybody wants to see their loved one so it will be crowded for a couple weeks then visiting should not be that bad. If you are traveling more than 250 miles your visit will not be terminated. I went 2 weeks ago and had my visit terminated after 2 hours. I had not seen my sweetie for 5 months; that did not matter to them. When I first started going over 2 years ago it was not like it is now. That new Captain that came in just made a mess of something that did not need "fixing." There were minor fights and what not, but not so severe that level 3 inmates were put on a level 4 program. Solano is level 2 and 3, not a level 4 prison. That's another story. If your man is a level 3 and is in the gym he's probably in H dorm which is yard two. I believe yards 3 and 4 are level 2 inmates. Good luck on your first visit to Solano!!! :)

Just dropping by to show some love. I would say Solano is alright but visits do get terminated very frequently. So I only go every thirty days. So I hope you have a good visit soon.
