ADX Florence

Hi! It's been a while. (I'm actually surprised I remembered my password.)

Quick question: Has anyone here ever visited ADX Florence? I know the rules and all of what is written in the procedures, but the official documents don't give the actual visitor perspective. I'm planning to visit my pen pal sometime this summer and was just wondering what it's like. I'm a bit nervous and don't want to mess anything up since the warden is being nice and letting me visit.

Thanks in advance!

Side note: where's the like thingy?

It has disappeared, heaven alone knows where, but it is not the only change for the worse that's happened recently.

Intimidated, yes. Things are often far worse in our minds than the actual experience, especially whe n there are several months to go before a visit and you're constantly thinking about it. It will all go well, it will be wonderful, it won't be as dramatic as you imagine it to be and you will be all relaxed and enjoy the experience. Honest!

Hi Sid!!

Can't answer your question about ADX Florence, as I've never been. I can imagine it will be an interesting (and maybe a bit intimidating) experience. Hope you get to see your pal :)

Nice to see you back again!

Sid! Haven't seen your name for quite a while (though I've been mostly absent, too).

Hey!! Yeah, I haven't popped in. Things were getting redundant and there was too much unnecessary drama (and that person who was mean to me every time I posted anything) so I stepped away and got myself a new pen pal. :) How have you been?

Hi! I'm completely intimidated and I still have a couple of months before I go! The idea of even going to that place is intimidating. Actually visiting my pen pal is intimidating since he's in solitary and hasn't seen anyone besides guards and his lawyers in years. Even seeing the other visitors is intimidating since I would apparently be given preference to visit given the distance and his housing location (according to the rules), so I don't want to make anyone mad! It'll be an experience, that's for sure.

I've visited prisons before. I've visited intimidating prisons before. There's just something about going to this one. I really don't know why. Oh well. I'll get through it. Maybe it'll make for a good WAP post!
