I've been making monthly trips to Ojibway since October. There's usually at least 3 of us women who share the cost of the trip. Believe me it saves us alot of money. We've been staying at a little hotel/lodge thats only 10minutes from the prison.

My boyfriend is up in ojibway correctional facillity for a parole violation and I just did the 10 hour drive last weekend to see him and was wondering if anyone in Michigan would like to share a ride there sometime in October or November, it's a long ride and I wouldn't mind company lol. If anyone is interested feel free to e-mail me at ravensfall6@yahoo.com .
Thanks,
Brooke

I'm glad someone posted they would like company going to Ojibway. I went up there on 10/12 to be my boyfriends representative. He say Dr King. We are waiting for the decision now and don't have any idea when it will come. If he is still up there at Thanksgiving, I wanted to go up there and visit him. I have been thinking how I could do it. It cost me about 300 for the trip alone. On the way back I got a speeding ticket for going 5 over on I-75. Near Cadillac Mich. I went over a hill and was going over and they pulled right behind me, I was accessible to the police, there were cars going 90 or more all around me. Cost me $110.00 had to mail it off today. I am on disability and this was really a hardship. If you are interested in carpooling around Thanksgiving, let me know. I will be happy to split expenses. I spent the night in that Lodge where Bobbyswife stays when she goes. It was clean and only 10 minutes away from Ojibway. Good to hear someone would like to carpool.

Hi There,

I stayed at the Skyview Lodge in Presque Isle, Wisconsin. It's just 10 minutes from Ojibway right down the road, a straight shot. It cost me 39.00 for the night I had his mother with me. so that rate was for two people. It is good to call there befoe you go and tell them you are visiting someone at Ojibay, they give you a special rate. It your interested send me another message and I will give you the phone number or you could look it up on the internet just type in the name and the state its in. I guess your loved one saw Dr king also. He was very sincere and kind.

I am planning on going the day after Thanksgiving as well. I am interested in carpooling and have been to Ojibway on two different occasions and also got a ticket. So if anyone is still going and would like the company and split expenses please email me back at shayluv76@yahoo.com or send a reply. Thanks and have a beautiful day.

Shannon

Well it seems I'm going to be making some trips to Ojibway as soon as I get my visitation approved. He got transferred from Egeler last night and I'm sending my visitation app out in todays mail. I will check back soon to find out if I could possibly ride share with others in the future and plan on going up as soon as I can. I too am strapped for money and would be grateful to share the costs. I'm in Kalamazoo area and don't mind doing some of the driving and have a dependable small SUV.
