Does landing miles away from the DZ on a bad spot count as a different drop zone?

Anyway, the list is long (hundreds?), in 45 or 50 different countries around the planet. Most times the spot was good enough to land on the DZ.

No its actuall this place just outside of Ft Bragg:

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.Laugh

In reply to:
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.

Holy shit. I cannot believe you forgot the Farm.

Hint: There must be something in the water at the Farm.

Second hint:
Me (on the second go-around...3 miles off DZ with green light):
We have an asshole for a pilot. Ya wanna just go ahead and bailout anyway? We're over some nice big pastures.

You: Yeah, let's go for it.

26 DZs, 11 countries, 3 continents

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.
