Default Who here travels to Gist State Jail Texas for Visits?

Anybody here travel to Gist for visits?? I go every weekend with one of my girlfriends whose husband is also there, and we have the best time on the drive there and of course an amazing time at visit! We travel eight hours round trip - every weekend!

I use to drive to Larry Gist and it was always a nice drive. The only town that scared me was Cut N Shoot. I like how they get to go outside on warm days.

Yeah it's not too bad of a drive....it's I-10 all the way for me, so it's pretty fast - just wish it was less than 4 hours lol

I know. Sucks when your loved one is sooo far away. They say he will go to Middleton first. That's nine hours from where im at. & that's one way.
Soo my visits will be limited :/

It sure does!!! Nine hours is definitely better than what you have now that's for sure.....but what I don't get is why they move them so freakin' far? We have a couple of different state jails that are closer to san antonio and they stick him way out on the coast grrrr
