Default SS to Marion, IL Satellite Camp October 1st

Hi all,
I have just received my reporting date to Marion, IL satellite camp on October 1st, 2019. I have been sentenced for 27 months for wire fraud. I have some questions and was hoping to receive some current information about Marion Camp from recently released inmates or from LO of current inmates at the camp. I have searched the forums and can not find anything current about the camp. I have also read the BOP handbook on the camp.

(1) In preparing for initial commissary purchase, typically how many days of shirts/shorts/underwear is best?

(2) Are there any community or Unicore type jobs available there?

(3) I've read where girlfriends/wives have sent "sexy" pics but are all pics required to be displayed or can they be kept in books or hidden from other inmates?

(4) What's the general thoughts about the camp as far as being laid back, or general inmate attitudes?

(5) I'm confused by some of the commissary items like Mayo in squeeze bottle and 3oz chicken breast... like how are these things stored? Are there mini fridges in the cubicles?

Any other information in general would be greatly appreciated! I've been reading the forums for months and appreciate all who contribute. I hope to be able to do the same when released.

Thanks!

I don't know anything about that camp, but I can answer a couple of questions anyway. You will be issued prison clothing, so there is no need to buy underwear. Athletic clothes, shorts and shoes aren't issued so you will need to purchase those. Sweatsuits are usually needed for the cold weather months.

Definitely no refrigerators, so anything you need to keep cold requires ice in a container.

Sexy pictures can't have any nudity and you will have to decide if you want other inmates to see your girlfriend in her lingerie or not.
