Places to Jump along Route 66

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of driving from Ohio to California over Christmas week. I am planning to take Route 66 and was wondering about the Dropzones along Route 66 that I can jump while I am driving. Making at least one jump in every state I drive through will be great. Will prefer the dropzones where I don't have to take long detours! If your home DZ or a dropzone you know of, is a short distance from Route 66, please let me know.

Christmas week? I think you're going to find most everything along that route closed for the winter until you get to California. Perris/Elsinore are open year round and aren't too far south of Rte 66.

I don't know Krisanne but with the weird ass weather this year... some of the small DZ's along the route especially when they get to Oklahoma and New Mexico and AZ might be jumping....

I hope by "most everything" you meant all the Dropzones and not all the businesses. It will shuck if all the business were closed too.

The one closest to Route 66 in Oklahoma will be Skydive Airtight - however, it is 15 miles north of 66 and 5 miles west on Highway 75

Great, hope you guys are jumping this Sunday. I am starting on Saturday from Ohio and will be in Oklahoma this Sunday.

Yeah, I meant dropzones! But I guess those Oklahomans are hardier than I expected (or it's warmer than I thought!), being open this time of year.

Generally from Chicago to LA, you should find these: St. Louis and Joplin in Missouri; Oklahoma City; Amarillo TX; Gallup, New Mexico; Flagstaff, Winona and Kingman in Arizona; Barstow and San Bernardino in California.




Wow....that's nearly 2000 miles all the way.
Always remember the brave children who died defending your right to bear arms. Freedom is not free.

Thanks Andy, that's exactly what I was looking for.
