*If flying in we recommend renting a car or post in the ranch fun jumpers Face book page and see if someone is in the area to pick you up. *give some gas money, it’s just nice!
*However, I think you would want a car for this drop zone as all attractions and stores are not within walking distance.
 Fire Pit and BBQ's
Driving in:
We at Pussfoot love taking road trips. Road trips give us the opportunity to meet amazing people and visit new drop zones. Having our own car on a skydiving adventure gives us a sense of safety and an additional place to store belongings. Not to mention that there is so much to do and see in this area that a car in my option is a must. A close second is a friend with a car.
*Use Waze - this will route you around traffic and show you all the police. This app should save you some time on your journey.
*Do you really need to bring that? Pack light, you are still in America and can stop to get whatever you need.
*Get a BP rewards card. You will earn $ 0.10 off a gallon for every 20 you buy. * There are BP gas stations all the way down. This last trip I saved over $50.00 in fuel using one. You will find me putting the BP rewards card into every review. I swear by this card. I myself have filled a tank for under $1.00. truest me get one.
*Remember to take breaks, switch drivers and stay hydrated and fueled up. The most important part of any road trip is enjoying the journey, no need to rush!

When we are preparing to write a guide for a drop zone we survey the area looking for interesting and fun activities for you to try. Let me tell you, The Ostrich Ranch is beyond the coolest place I’ve been in years. 
From the amazing staff, feeling like a kid again to the animals and knowledge you will gain from visiting. A must when in the area.  This attraction is very reasonable priced. If you are going to venture out make sure to add this to your list, an extreme petting zoo make sure to ride the monster truck and feed the stingrays. Tell Danna Pussfoot sent ya!! Trust me is the Darndest Place you’ll ever Visit!!
