Default New to McCreary

Hey all. My fiancee' just got transferred to USP McCreary from USP Lee today so I'm looking for any tips about McCreary. We were previously using Google Voice to talk but I can't get a Voice number for Pine Knot or the surrounding area. Any suggestions folks? Anyone from NC or SC ever make a trip up to McCreary? Thanks
<~~~~ Waiting on Josh to come home

I would suggest getting a cell phone with an area code and exchange in the same area as the facility. Any kind of call forwarding is frowned upon by the BOP.

My friend spent a couple years there, but thankfully got a redeignation and transfer to an FCI. Never had problem getting phone calls as long as they were direct dial. Call forwarding doesn't work.

McCreary is a pit. At least that is how my friend described it. Stabbings are not unusual. Tell him to keep a low profile and just go about his own business. The place goes into lock down so much I couldn't risk making the trip from Virginia to visit.
