In my mail yesterday I received a letter he had written on 4/11 - so including the weekend that was only 4 days to be delivered to me - coming from SHU. I live in SoCal, close to LA.

My man is in SHU and he is responding to letters that I sent about 2 weeks ago but I am getting his letters 3-4 days from when he sends them. Hope this helps

Thank you! I live in Europe so it takes about 7 days to get to me. Well I am going to sleep next to the mailbox. Mail should be coming then...

Do you have any idea why it takes so long for them to get the mail? I send Jpays to Texas for my other pp, he gets them in 2-3 days

I have no idea why our mail seems to take so much longer to get to them other than the time they spend monitoring it. I know that they read my mans mail pretty carefully because they had been trying to validate him. He just went to committee in April and is due to go again in September too to try and get out of SHU since they were unable to validate him so I suspect this is why they monitor his so closely. Maybe they do that for everyone in there though?

I tried once and it did go thru, but I guess the scent had worn off because he said he didn't smell anything on it I am to afraid to even try it again because I don't want it sent back, we already have enough time in between our letters that I just don't want to make the wait even longer.

My husband is in D-6 - his most recent mail to me was dated 5.28.13 and received Saturday 6.1.13 - that is super quick. I'm in SoCal, close to LA.

Having said that, there are ALWAYS ebbs and flows to this mail situation, often times for no good reason.

As long as you're secure in your relationship, don't worry, This too shall pass and it goes with situations we all have to deal with regarding prison/mail.

I used to drive myself crazy waiting on mail, but that's just silly. I don't worry about it any more.....but it did take me 5 years to get to this stage!
