Anyone been there before or know someone who has been? My husband just got transfered there and so far all we can tell is that is SUCKS!!

Other than being 6 hours away, they only get one visit per month, only for half an hour, and usually just through video, not even a window. They took away his journals, most of his books, his radio, his watch, and his wedding ring, all of which have been allowed the last 5 places he has been. He said both the guards and inmates there are all really negative and disrespectful to each other too, which hasn't been the case anywhere else yet.

Im so sorry to hear that. No i have not known anyone that is housed there. My husband is in Gunnison right now. I have found my best success in his past moves by calling the facility and getting the number for his caseworker. Once Ive been able to talk with a caseworker and ask questions, things tend to get easier on both of us.
