I hope someone here will have good information for you. But also try asking your son to get a visiting form from the prison. I have some from other locations that give a list of places to stay in that area.....also ones that offer discounts for these places. It also list like cab phone numbers and etc that can come in help for some. Worth a try!

Sure! )
You may not have seen one since you are his mom...you never had to fill out a visitor request I am sure! But it usually has some helpful information!
Hope he can get something for you! He should be able to request it thru his case worker.

Just thought I would jump in here. I am in Kentucky where my husband was until last week. They moved him over 500 miles away to Cumberland Maryland to the camp there. Does anyone know anything about the camp? He hasn't gotten to call in yet and I am most anxious about how he is doing and what the place is like. The last camp wasn't too bad and it was only 200 miles away so I could go see him every week. I know I can't go to Maryland often but I will try when I can. Just wondering what their visit rules and situations are there. General stuff. I know about the FCM at Lexington in Kentucky and the camp at Manchester but that is all.
Thanks
Mountain Mama

Hi Brenda,

I travel about 90% of the time, always searching for bargains, and the cheapest rates I found were at a Super 8, 12 miles from Waseca City Center. Try www.hotwire.com though, and you may do better. I went to orbitz.com and travelocity.

Hope you have a great visit!
Kelli

Hello JohnsMom

I replying to your question as far as the motels in Texas I pay 60.00 a night and you need to get there at a good time, meaning if you check in at 2:00 am the price will still be the same if you had check in at 12:00 pm. Good luck and be aware of the Texas Police they are strict about the speed limit. I'm going to see my hubby this weekend and my brother.

Hello All,
My brother is 500 to 750 miles from family ! He is in FCI Elkton (very bad place) and I know the horrable hurt when you can't see them ! He is supposed to be transfered to FMC Devens for medical care, but that may be a mind game too. It's alot further away, but he needs medical care BAD !

Love & Prayers To All With Loved Ones In Priosn,

Coral

I am respondeing to the questions about Cumberland Md, I know a guy who did some time there a couple of years ago. He said it was a clean place, not too bad. He didn't have much trouble there. I will try to get some details for you. When you get some info from your husband, let me know. I have some other friends going in soon, and would like to pass the details on to them. the Md facility is about 2 and a half hours from me.

Hi everyone....
Mountain Mama, I am interested in finding out about camps too. So if you get info on this camp let me know. I am also interested if anyone has had a furlough with someone from a camp? My man is in FCI Butner, NC low...waiting to go to a camp ..hopefully after his next team in July, although his points wount be down until August...who knows what they will decide and where they will put him. I live in Ct so NY or Pa will be better then NC.

I think they do what they want! God Bless all!
Anita

I also have to add that in the 12 years he has been in he has been in PA, AZ, TX, FL, NJ, GA, SC, RI (briefly) and now NC....Go to prison get to see the country :-) Hopefully NY and then home to Ct in 2.5 years, maybe a 1/2way house of house arrest would even be better.....who knows the rules change everyday. We just have to keep the faith right !!!?!!

You are so right Anita. I hope he gets nearer and nearer until he is finally home. My son "MAYBE" will be sent to a camp in about 6 months. He was just denied last month...told to wait until Sept.
Good luck to all. I can also use info on different camps.

Brenda

Anita....

I joke with my friends that I am sooooo jealous that he gets to travel the US on the government money without me!
He has surely been around....has any of the locations been at his request?
About Cumberland....I met some guy at the Office Depot store when I was copying some pics from fed prison. He commented about them knowing that they were from a federal prison and he started telling me his Dad was in FCI Cumberland. I asked some questions and he said also that it was a clean place...considering other places he had been....Cumberland seemed to be at the top of the list. Hopefully it will be a decent place for him!

Diane,
The first place he went to in Pa was at his request...then NC was at his request (his sister is there). New York was a long shot so he went for NC first. Now that he is almost eligible for camp we are hopeful about NY. I can see Danny more often and so can the kids. Every 6months is hard and 14 min, and then 1 min phone calls the next day is not enough.

NC, Butner FCI is a new place. It is very clean, but the personel is another story. Also there is alot of men there that are pedifiles, they have special safety for them and he gets really upset at situations (dont want to offend anyone)......he just wants out of there.

I am looking forward to him being at a camp...it is one step closer to the outside world. I am 45 years old I have 3 children 23, 15 and 13 and a grandchild 7. They all live with me. If any of you have this kind of lifestyle you know that it is alot of work day to day....being a single parent. I look forward when we can all be together

Brenda, Diane and everyone else...thanks for your support and friendship....its nice to know I am not alone...and that it is to OK to love someone who is in prison. Thanks all and God Bless

Thank You Anita,
Yes it is nice to be able to talk to people who understand the situation and know it is okay to love someone in prison.

It is tough being a single parent. I pray you will all be together SOON!

Brenda
