Good morning everyone! The guys are back up today, I just got off the phone. My guy wasn't sure if they'd be on a modified program or not but at least they are out for awhile. Hope everyone hears from their LOs today. Have a great day!

I heard from mine at 1130 when he called me. The website still shows no visits. He hasn't emailed yet but he also told me there was almost an hour wait for computers because everyone is getting on.

Question: Is there an airport closer than the tri-state airport in WV to the prison?

There is one in Hunington,wv but it's expensive, I always land in Cincinnati and drive 3 hours.

How are the visits at Big Sandy... it makes me nervous and I am sure everyone nervous... when planning a visit, the chances of a lockdown are very high

My man was so happy for his friend becaue his parents flew out from NY to visit and Saturday visitation was cancelled for Saturday but then on Sunday he was able to visit with his family.
So my man said... what a blessing his friend was able to see his family on Sunday.

Good morning everyone, I just spoke with someone at Big Sandy and was told that the current lockdown is anticipated to last at least until this Thursday but may be longer. Visits for this coming weekend have not yet been cancelled though so I'm going to take that as a good sign.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Have your fiancé ask if anyone else receives visitors from your area. Also, many bop "inmate bulletin boards" carry ads from companies with van services to their visiting rooms.

Another option, do an internet search for van/bus transportation from your town to 1197 AIRPORT ROAD, INEZ, KY 41224

I did the internet search and didn't have any luck with that, but I will definitely ask him if anyone else from the area travel. Thanks

The more remote the location of the prison is, the more unlikely that transportation companies will find it profitable to go there. I've never been to Big Sandy, but finding Inez, KY on the maps makes it appear to be far away from anywhere else.

Tri-State Airport (HTS / KHTS) is the closest, located in Huntington, West Virginia and is 49 miles from the center of Inez, KY.

I hope he can find a ride share to visitation from another inmate who's family
lives near you.

And pray that when you do make arrangements to visit that they don't go on lockdown. Because I heard they are on lockdown until Monday.

Yeah, mine has been locked down since Sunday afternoon (4/9). Every time I talk to someone at Big Sandy the date keeps getting moved out. I thought for sure they'd be up today as the last few haven't lasted more than a week. I'm hoping for some mail today.
