Default Desoto Work Camp Q&A

Does anyone have any information about this facility? Abimael was just transfered there and I don't know anything about this facility? Are the hotels in this area ok? Are there any that I should avoid?

Cool I posted some info about De Soto here somewhere...

My guy is in De Soto, I've been staying at the De Soto motel just off Hwy 17, it costs $55.00 per night - $10.00 extra to check in before 11am. The rooms are ok, and it's quiet. When we left this time, we went through Lake Placid and seen a motel by a lake, with a swimming pool - it looks classier and I think it said $65 per night. Visit check in begins at 8:30am and the latest you can check in is at 2pm. Visit ends at 3pm... they start calling out "you have 1 hour left, you have 45 minutes left, you have 30 minutes left, you have 15 minutes left, you have 10 minutes left, you have 5 minutes left, WRAP IT UP!!! I told M "you have one minute left" lol (phone system). You can take in I hear up to $50 in one dollar bills, I put money in his account so I don't have to worry about it... an unwrapped deck of cards, but they already have cards there, one see through lighter, one unopened pack of cigarettes, one vehicle car key and your drivers license, put it in a see through zip baggie. You line up, go through the gate one at a time unless you have more in your party, if so 4 at a time - give his DC#, your drivers license is exchanged for a tag, you'll get your license back when you leave, then you walk through a metal detector, get patted down, go through the other gate into the park, go into the lounge and tell the C.O's who you are there to see, then you wait...
Hope this helps.
Peace
Jin.
