It's usually at least 3 weeks for the main side, so I'm just banking on that. Hopefully not any longer...I'm already feeling sorry for myself

I talked to mine on the 11th and then nothing, but I was out of the country on vacation and wasn't really sure what was going on until I got back

He called today, camp is off lockdown. They just started the main building today, so it will definitely be some weeks before completion. They are doing a very detailed shakedown. Hang in there!

Ugh. So we're probably looking at 3 more weeks unless everyone is cooperative for once (yeah right.) Buckling down for the long haul I guess.

It was also a holday weekend. So if he didn't get your letter out right away, nothing else was going out until Monday. Mine didn't right me until the day after lockdown started and I didn't get the letter until Wednesday...which was really fast.

Camp finally went to commissary last Thursday, and outside time Saturday. I know everyone will be glad when it's finished.

Is the whole prison off lockdown? And are they still on phone restriction? Haven't heard from my man yet): he said he was on G4 status not sure if it was just him or the whole unit

I talked to my son yesterday, not sure about the rest. Call the unit tomorrow and ask them, they should tell you something.

Yes, the whole unit has been off lockdown for a couple weeks now.

If he just became G4 I doubt he has phone privileges because it means he had a disciplinary issue. He may have been moved to a wing that doesn't even have a phone.
