Thank you for the update! God bless you both on your journey, in life and road trip!

Thank you for the update! Best of everything on you and your LOís next chapter out of these walls. Mine gets out in April and I am going to pick him up. Unsure about how release works because of this LD he hasnít been able to tell me anything or find anything out about it. :/

Sounds to me like the prison needs to be aware of it and ship the troublemakers out. Mines in the hole, and won't be out til they move him... If they allow the people who are causing the issue to run the place, what's the point in a warden?

Agreed. They need to ship the troublemakers out. Thereís guys in there that just are trying to make it home in one piece. Praying for all of our guys. In the hole or out in gen pop

Stay away from Travel Inn and Convenience Inn. Iíve heard from locals they are dirty and have had bed bug issues.

I just called and someone answered but he said he didn't know when the LD would be lifted. Far as I can tell, they know when the guys have a week or so left on LD.
N It's best to call first thing in the morning. Around 9am. Usually someone answers at that time. All the best!

Default USP Lee

I'm so happy I found this thread. My man will be transferred to USP Lee, and they're on lockdown. How does that work?

What all do you want to know? Lol. Theyíve been locked down since end of February, which really sucks. When they arenít on lockdown itís nice but the first few days after a lockdown are the worse it feels like to me because they are ďfightingĒ to get phones and computers to email. I write my fiancť during lockdowns at least twice a week so he gets them. Letters are our biggest source of communication because of all the lockdowns.
