The usual where to go 11-26/12-7 Can't Post

looking to get about 50 in. Somewhere where the weather dosen't suck. Loads turning 7 days a week is a must. Cheap places to stay and things near by would be nice. I'll also be due for a repack (coming home off of deployment) but I'll be current.

Eloy. Bunkhouse is $8/night, weather should hold almost every day, loads turning every day, desert skies rigging on the field. They also have a $1000 special on fifty jump tickets but they come with a time limit.

Eloy, Elisnore and Z-hills are all looking pretty good. Flights to phoenix are decent and 1K for 50 looks good but hows the temps that time of year?

It can get cold-ish at night in Eloy (low 40s or even 30s) but it's the best time of year for good weather. Expect low 70s during the day.

What about Perris/Elsinore in the last week of November? Is it as busy as Eloy or at least planes running all day and people to jump with as alone travelling freeflyer? :)

I've never heard of the 50 jumps / 1000$-deal. Can you confirm this and maybe provide a bit more info, please? What's the time limit, are they all full-alti-jumps, any drawbacks except the time-limit..?

Do they have special on hop n' pops aswell if you buy them in blocks of 50?

Thanks,
Alex.
