Jumping in December Can't Post

Hi Guys,

Looking at going to a DZ or 2 in the US in december, probally going mid to end of november for 3-4 weeks so would be willing to travel around dropzones..... was wondering what is the best chances of good weather and jump capacity in that sorta time of year. Ive read Deland has good chances in december for jumping, but what about Elsinore, Eloy, Perris, and any others which I have missed..

cheers for any advice you can give

If you come to Fl, you can hit many dropzones within a couple hours of each other: DeLand, Palatka, Lake Wales, Zhills, Sebastian and the wind tunnel too. Zhills will have Thanksgiving Boogie, which is always fun.

The west coast dz's that you mentioned are all worth the trip too. I guess it just depends on which coast you want to be on!

I want to be on both coasts! LOL.

Well, something I may have to consider if I cant make my mind up....

From what I have read so far my best chances of jumping weather is if I stay towards the south of the US.... Im going to look into flight costs/internal flight costs and make a cunning plan to do both east and west coast!

Don't come to Eloy.

The weather's crap, the locals are assholes, and the beer is warm. Oh, and they have crappy planes too.

Good points, Remi...

But come out west, Eloy, Perris, Elsinore, Skydive San Diego and Tsunami Skydivers offer pretty nice jumping that time of year.
