Default Need info on visiting in Herlong FCI

My fiance is currently in transit to the Herlong FCI. Does anyone know how it is? I will be going to see him ASAP and when I search online for surrounding hotels there doesn't seem to be any. Any help or info would really be appreciated. I will be coming from Sacramento so I would also be interested in ride sharing as well!

Does anyone know how long it takes to be approved for visiting and marriage in Herlong? We've been together for over 10 years and this past year has been one of the hardest in my life!

Been there many times.....if you are flying in...stay in Reno,,many options for hotels,,rent car...about an hour drive to Herlong. If you are travelling by car,,,,,,stay in Susanville..have stayed at High Country Inn (free breakfast) & is only about 35 minute drive to Herlong. There is nothing in Herlong so eat before you visit. I do not know how the visiting room is at the FCI since my LO is in the camp but there, the vending is so limited & expensive. It might be better at the prison.

You are welcome...hope you have gotten approved for visitation & sorry been tough year....you just have to reinvent your life when this kinda stuff happens. Try to stay as positive as you can....because negativity will get you nothing but heartache & pain. Sending positive thoughts & prayers your way...

And through all this....some people will stay in your life & others will fall away...but that is okay....it weeds out those people that don't need to be in your life. I lost a few friends but I realized....they weren't really the kind of friends I need so I saw this whole experience as a positive outcome meaning you don't get much opportunity in life to see who is really there for you & who isn't. Thank goodness, my family has been there for me....some may be a bit uncomfortable but they are non judgemental & truly care for me.
Good luck to you & keep your chin up...remember, fall 7 times...get up 8 times...that is how I have gotten through many days.....
