375 miles each way, about 6 hours. I stay for three days at a time. Recently discovered Amtrak and I love it!

I drive 1 hour 1 way and I love it. We still schedule the in person visits since I usually work around 50 hours a week but there have been times he has called on the weekend and asked me to come see him on a whim. I couldn’t imagine being any further away from him!

My drive is about 45 minutes long. I count myself so blessed that he was put in a facility so close to home.

A one-way-itinerary looks like this: two hours to the airport on commuter train, however long at the airport, a two-and-half-hour flight, then a two-and-half drive to the prison. Then the way back in reverse three days later. I have a full-body workout on the travel days.

I haven't visited yet in his new facility. When he was in the city jail it was a 45 minute subway ride followed by a 35-45 minute bus ride. Now he's about a 5 hour drive away and if I take the train it would be close to 8 hours plus a half hour drive to the facility. The thought of making that trip is incredibly daunting but I also miss him so much. Plus he only gets visits every other week so I want to make sure he gets at least one or two this summer.
