Anyone else go in even numbered days who I could ride with? I'm honest And I haven't been able to get a car rental I didnt know they would not take a president debit. Can anyone help me? Oh to Madison Correctional.

I hop on a flight from Florida and travel all the way to upstate NY. I try to get 4 weekends in a year. I just went last weekend and we have so much fun just being lovey and goofing off together.

There were going to send him to another prison that was about 4 hours away and honestly I would have been cool with that to, but thankfully not that far.

2-21/2 hours. It's such a long and boring drive with all the corn fields that I pass, and not to mention how uncomfortable those stools are in the visitation room,
but seeing my boyfriend makes it all better and worth it

Smile Mel Van Services

Yeaterday was the first time i went on a visit to Ulster the van services I took was amazing the driver arrived on time and the car was clean and comfortable. He was accommodating to a young girl who needed a shirt to cover her leggings he drove her to walmart to purchase a shirt he had cold water in the van also. I would recommend Mels Van Service to anyone going on a visit upstate to visit your loved ones.

I drive about an hour each way to see my special loved one. My issue usually isn't with the drive, it is the waiting process when I arrive to the facility. Sometimes I wait 20 minutes to get in to see her and other times it takes me 1-4hrs.
