Deland, Z-hills and Sebastien in March/April Can't Post

A group of us are heading over the pond to Florida from 24th March to the 7th April...

The plan is to be based at Deland the first week with a day or two at Sebastien - hopefully doing a beach jump aswell...

Middle weekend at Z-hills for flock n dock and then back to Deland for the expo...

anything else worth squeezing into this trip as we've never been to florida before?

Florida has some very beautiful natural springs. At that time of year, you can probably still see some manatees, but it's also fun to rent a canoe and explore the springs on your own. Near Deland, go to Blue Springs and near Zhills, go to Crystal River. You can also rent a tube in some of the parks and float down the springs ln a more relaxed manner.

On your drive from Deland to Sebastian, check out Kennedy Space Center in Titusville.

About an hour north of Deland, you can visit St. Augustine, our country's oldest city. There are cool forts and a lighthouse you can climb.

An airboat ride is always fun, you might be able to chase some gators.

Europeans usually like the outlet mall shopping in Orlando since the exchange rate works in your favor. Look for discount coupons online for even more savings.

Of course there's the tunnel in Orlando, beaches and plenty of theme parks to choose from.

Did I give you enough to do? Sly

The three dz's are joining together to have a great 2 week boogie. There is going to be a get together of some of the 'skydiving families' at zhills the last weekend of March with great organizing, and some terrific partying. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the three. The dates that we are going to hit specifically is the Mar 23 through April 2nd area. If you look up Team Dirty Sanchez, Chris Bonafide and me, Beth Mahlo, on Face Book there will be more info on the boogie!

Too bad you can't start your trip one weekend early and start out with the St.Patricks Boogie in Fitzgerald. Then hit the Dirty Sanchez boogie and the Muff Bros. reunion.

It's gonna be a jam up couple of weeks.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys...

Our flight doesn't get in til late on the 24th so doesn't look like we'll be able to make the boogie that weekend at Sebastien...

So...i think the plan for those two weeks will be

Sunday 25th - Tuesday 27th at DeLand

Wednesday 28th - Thursday 29th - Tracking at Sebastien

Friday 30th- Sunday 1st - Flock n Dock at Z-Hills

Monday 2nd - Saturday 7th, back to Deland for the Expo...


Cannot wait!
