Where to jump in the USA at this time of year ?
I finally have a week off between jobs from 19/06 to 26/06 and I'd like to travel to a DZ where I can get loads of jumps in during this time. At the moment, my choices look to be:
Zephyrhills Perris Elsinore Lodi The Ranch
The main things I'm looking for is - somewhere that has consistent good weather around this time of year (from both cloud / rain and wind perspective) - easy and relatively well priced to get to from the UK - and somewhere that I can get loads of jumps in over a 5 week-day period. Ideally I'd like to get 30 - 40 jumps in during this time - somewhere with packers would be a big plus too!
I'm trying to avoid anywhere that's more than a 4 hour drive from the nearest international hub, and anywhere that I would need to take connecting flights to get to. I know this seems fussy, but on a short holiday, I want as few chances as possible for international air carriers to lose my luggage or otherwise ruin my vacation :D
East coast is preferred due to the shorter flight times and fewer hours for jet-lag issues, so any other good places on the east coast would also be gratefully received!
