DZ numbers? Can't Post

I was wondering on how many different DZ's people have jumped or who has jumped the most different dZ's around the world.

61 DZs in three countries. The vast majority in the USA. I'm sure that isn't a big number. Jerry Bird probably has a million.

I just called Jerry (since you sparked my curiosity)..he needs some time to think about this trivial pursuit question. It might take a whileLaugh

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 yearsWink) but I'll certainly trySmile...as my honey says every weekend...
"There is no TRY, there is only DO"

Only 3 Unsure 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)

On the cards... Sibson, Langar, Netheravon, Seville, Eloy (Well you've just got to haven't you)

Nice long list SkymonkeyOne!

Are you allowed to tell us about all the military DZs that you visited?

You know, the ones where the Sandinistas/Iraqi Republican Guard/Taliban/etc. offered you a warm welcome ... out the muzzle of a Kalshnikov????
