Default Beaumont Low info

Not kidding!! Good thing I had extra clothes in my car! So, just wear a regular bra to be on the safe side. I would also go early if going on the weekends as it gets crowded. Be there by 8am..they will not let you in until 8:30, but it is best to be there early so you can get the most time from your visit. You will have to remove your shoes and put them thru a scanner and you will have to walk thru a metal detector.

Have now visited my son for the second time. It was great but hard. Just like a puppy, I wanted to bring him home. So close yet so far. The visits are very good, it is very crowded on weekends, but only time i can go. You have to take your shoes off, go thru a metal detector, but the wait is the hardest. No one is in a hurry there. You might have to sit for an hour, just for your number to be called. You have to get a locker to put your car keys in it. But you get to keep the key for the locker in a bag.
So our locker had one car key in it. Didnt make sense to do that , but had to.
We will see my son again on thanksgiving, and was told you only get an hour visit because it is so busy. We will be there by 8:00

I think its the same as a weekend point but not sure cause they don't do points in the camp...that's where my husband's at. But I'm pretty sure that's what they do...do you live in Beaumont? if not are you planning on staying in a hotel? Im wanting to drive out there tomorrow night and was hoping I could find someone to split a room with.

i know the feeling
my husband doesn't have as long, but just knowing that he's not even halfway done just really gets to me somedays. i have no one else, really, and so many other problems come up and it's just hard to get along in my daily life without him. I'm not used to living by myself. sigh. i'm ready for August to be here

yea i had a good visit...just wish i could have stayed longer, but needed to work
the camp is okay you will be shocked when you go in for visit lol..no metal detectors or anything...there is a guard there who is super sweet...he told my husband he lost two of his fingers at the usp, but wouldn't say how...he is always very nice to me, and i don't know if you can do this at the low, but at the camp you can play cards n checkers....and for the size of the camp there are not a lot of visitors.
