Recomended DZ in the US july,aug,sept? Can't Post

Hi guys!

I live in Norway and i'm thinking about taking a trip over the atlantic to jump for 2-3 weeks. Where should I go?

I spent 3 weeks in z-hills during march. I loved the DZ but i've been told it's very hot in florida during this time of year?

What would you Suggest?

Florida & Arizona will be on the scorching side that time of year. Northern and Southern California won't be too bad (though SoCal can get pretty hot, too). It'd be a fantastic time of year to go to Skydive Chicago - it's a great setup to park yourself there for a few weeks and live very comfortably on the DZ. You could even aim to be there during the Summerfest boogie.

Absolutely the worst months to be in FL!

Find the biggest boogie that meets yours schedule. Skydive Chicago is end of July. Lost Prarie is Aug 4-12, Work Stinks is end of August. I am sure there are others. You will be travelling during the height of boogie season in the American Midwest. Take advantage of it Smile

Skydive New England has their Tiki boogie beginning of Sept. AMAZING boogie! great fliers up there and even better partiers. They're fun people.

From July thru September you'll find the southern states can be unbearably hot, especially if you're from Norway. But there are many beautiful dropzones in the northern states, places that are usually closed during winter, but have very active jumping scenes during the summer months. Check out Skydive Chicago, The Ranch in Gardner, NY, Jumptown in Orange, MA and Skydive New England up in Lebanon, Maine. In the Northwest you might try Skydive Kapowsin, in Shelton, WA, or Skydive Oregon in Mollala (did I spell that right ?). All of these places will be making the most of the good weather while they've got it and all of them have turbos to get you up to altitude as often as you want. Hope you have a great visit this summer !
