suggestions for a tour? Can't Post

im beginning to make plans for the 9month or so gap between graduating and going into the RN which involve a good few months workin down my local pub to get some cash, then going on a jumping spree... im thinking the US as it will probably be over christmas time and i can imagine certain areas of the US dont get as cold as here! would you suggest going to one dropzone (was thinking somewhere in california or florida, maybe arizona as ive got relatives there) and staying there for a month or so, settling into the jumping scene, making some good friends etc (living in a bunkhouse or tent or something) or should i move around and experience a few DZs? im looking to become a warp coach at some point, or learning to freefly properly (wont have the money for both alas) should have 125-150 jumps by then at the very least and hopefully my own rig,

any suggestions would be appreciated,
cheers

The tour sounds like the best plan to me. I would suggest the South Western Tour: Eloy, Elsinore, Perris, Mesquite, Moab, etc

Although I'm sure that Florida would be fun too: SpaceCenter, Deland, etc.

Of course you could always just live at Eloy during that time...that is the time of the HOLIDAY Boogie (balloons, heli's, skyvan, otter, etc etc)....

But then again...there is also a HOLIDAY Boogie at Perris (andt they are jumping the Jet)....

Oh decisions decisions....Sly

sounds quite good, another thing though is how easy would it be to get a job as a temporary packer (as in i could jump/pack every other day etc) at DZs in the US? will need to be funding my living etc... do any of these DZs have caravans to rent etc?
