That's right off the top of my head. Never been to Australia, Africa, Japan, Russia, or anywhere else in SE Asia.
You have many more jumps and years in the sport than me. As my mom calls me the world traveler, I hope I can check out as many dz's as you have by the time I'm 50 (that's only 10 more years) but I'll certainly try...as my honey says every weekend... "There is no TRY, there is only DO"
GRRRRRRRRRRRR...he pushes me but it'll only make me better
Jerry Bird just called to say it's over 100 dz's world wide that he's jumped at!!! and he'll give me the final count perhaps tomorrow! Hoooooooly shit! he's the bomb diggity! When I said 60..he said "yeah...that'd be other countries..but including those with the dz's here in the US..hmmm"

20 DZs and 2 non-DZs in 10 states and 1 province... in order of my jump at each place. Not bad for less than 3 years in the sport.

Only 3 But I have a pathetic amount of jumps so its not too shabby really.
Headcorn, UK - (Where it all began for me) Empuriabrava, Spain - (I'm sure its going to be hard to beat) Old Buckenham, UK - (Real friendly. Although 2 hours away, I consider it my 'home'. All of my recent UK jumps been here)

It wasn't actually a "Boogie" per say, we (Green Beret and 82nd Sport Parachute Clubs) had an Arkansas Air National Guard C-130 for the day at the Moore County Airport. Free C-130 jumps from 13,500 all day, just had to buy beer and pizza for the pilots at the end of the day.
I was wondering on how many different DZ's people have jumped or who has jumped the most different dZ's around the world.
Do two DZ's at the same airport count as two or one? If so then it is four for me despite my low number of jumps:
SWOOP, Grand Bend Airport (at the time), Ontario, Canada Grand Bend Sport Parachuting Centre, Grand Bend Airport, Ontario, Canada Sky's the Limit, Orange County Airport (at the time), NY, USA Skydance Skydiving, Yolo County Airport, CA, USA
How did you jump at Palmerola Honduras? I'm stationed there now and I'm trying to find a way to jump here in Honduras and so far I haven't found anything. Did you do an airborne drop there or a fun jump? Thanks... I'm having withdrawals here from not jumping in a while.
Also if anyone else knows of a place to jump at here in Hondo please let me know. I hear that PD has a factory here so I thought maybe they might have a DZ somewhere to test them or something.

One lift, in logbook, was technically an international flight as we took two Caravans (one with luggage, one with geared-up jumpers) from Old Bucks UK across North Sea to Texel Island, Netherlands and arrived under canopy.
I remember once, meeting someone at Zephyrhills and both of us saying “I’ve met you somewhere before; we’ve jumped together – we had jumped together in Swakopmund, Namibia a couple years prior.
