So fun to read these posts! I'm getting all kinds of great ideas! Thanks gang!

I jump inside mostly but after a run I jump outside before I come in. I like jumping on carpet. :)

I jump outside on a level portion of my driveway. I use really nice tennis shoes to help absorb the impact and just jump minimally above the rope. I like to jump fast so usually within about 15 minutes of 1 1/2-2 min intervals with a 30 sec break in between, I put on about 1600 steps on my pedometer. I find that a smooth surface and a slightly heavy rope with nice articulated handles makes for best jumping conditions. I sometimes count as I am jumping and challenge myself to make as many continuous jumps as I can and exceed my previous best. One reason why I jump rope is because it is efficient and I am all about maximizing my time and using it to get the best results I can.

I always jump inside, once I tried jumping outside on grass, it felt so slippery and got tangled a lot!

When I'm at home, I jump in a big and empty wood-floored space at my gym. I am currently in Wales. I must jump outside where it is quite cold and windy and often rainy. I can't jump barefoot. Even though I wear VFFs (Vibram Five Fingers - the barefoot replicating shoes with individual toes) I mess up a lot. It's not at all like jumping barefoot where I don't miss for long, long stretches. Alas. I'm self conscious, too. I very much miss jumping rope barefoot for good long times in the warmth..

I prefer to jump outside just because I don't have to worry about hitting something or someone. I jump on concrete which I know isn't good but that is what option I have. Grass is not level and the rope loses momentum. If it is too cold to go outside I will jump in the kitchen. It has tall ceilings and tile but the space is limited. I have to jump at an angle and not move forward or backward too much.
Living in a trailer is tough because it is small with normally low ceilings. You may have to go somewhere to exercise or make room by pushing furniture around temporarily.

If it's during the day then I will jump outside in the front yard. If it's nighttime and I'm alone watching tv and being lazy, then I will jump in front of the tv for awhile. I may not have a treadmill to use while I'm watching tv, but jumping works just as well.

Today I jumped outside but I have a feeling it will be hard on my ankles so I am going to try inside in my room with the fan off and see if I can do it inside~

Inside, more specifically, at the living room, on carpeted surface. The problem is when people are watching the tv and I can't do my jumping LOL I've tried to run at grass surface but because I wasn't used to, kept stumbling and tripping, haha.

You jump wherever works for you. Although they said that you shouldn't jump on hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt. It's OK if you're doing just a little bit on hard surfaces, but consider finding alternative if you'll be doing a lot. I jump at the gym in the groupex room when it's not in used. It's wood floor and has some give. It's ideal condition really.

I was just wondering since it's winter, does everyone jump outside or do they do it inside? If you jump inside how do you find room if you live in a small place? I live in a trailer and I am tryin to figure out a way I can jump inside since there is quite a bit of snow on the ground. Just curious to read where everyone else jumps at?
