Default Elmira Visitation

hey ladies. i'm going up for my first visit on thursday and i'm alittle overwhelmed and nervous. i've read other threads on what i need to know to be prepared but... i have a few more questions for anyone who has an answer!
what time should i be there? what time do you usually get in there by?
is there a bathroom in there? can i sit right next to him? can i only kiss him at the beginning and end of every visit? can he take back any food with him from the vending machines? what can't i wear? are these rooms huge? like... does visitation ever fill up?
not really NEED TO KNOW questions... just stuff im curious about. stuff that i'll find out when i get up there but im anxious! thanks!

You will be fine with room capacity on a weekday. No food leaves the visit room. You can sit next to him. You can hold hands. Not a lot of kissing allowed besides beginning and end. Room is like a school cafeteria. Get there by 830 if you want to stay all day dress conservatively. Nothing sexy or with holes. Must pass a metal detector. Sports bras save hassle. Do not bring a cell inside at all. Bring a change of clothes.

Bring a lot of quarters. Do not count on change machines.

You can't sit next to him. I always see the CO's telling visitors to switch seats. You have to sit across from him. He has to sit in the seat that is most visible to the CO's. If you get confused, just ask the CO which seat you should take. And don't over do it with the kissing. You don't wanna get him in trouble. You can hold hands, just keep your hands on the table.

They'll start letting you in at 9:00. I always get there at like 8:45 and wait for them to let me in. Thursdays are never really busy so don't worry if you're a little late. And don't panic if he takes a little while to come to the visiting room. Sometimes it takes them a few minutes.

Bring 2 forms of ID, quarters, extra clothes (nothing see through, low cut, too tight, or ripped) Also pictures cost $2.

Message me if you have more questions. Have a nice visit!
