For state number ten, the Down For 50 crew flew up to Anchorage and then drove North to Talkeetna, where some friends showed them how the Alaskan people do aviation.
What is Down For 50?
Two travellers. Fifty States. Every single sky in America.
Down For 50 is a fun project created by Annette O’Neil and Joel Strickland to visit all fifty states in America over the course of one, unbroken journey. They’ll skydive in each one, and for each state visited, the project’s goal is to raise $1,000 for Operation Enduring Warrior: a veteran-founded non‐profit whose mission is to honor, empower and motivate the nation’s wounded veterans through a physical, mental and emotional rehabilitation.
When they make that fiftieth jump, the event will mark the first time the feat has ever been accomplished in one fell swoop.
