    It's amusing that "SoWal" seems to be an elite entity, unrelated to the rest of Walton County. You people need to secede from Walton County.

    It is a distinct geographical region. However elite it is, is probably in the eye of the beer holder. Seems like there are a lot of regions defined like that: Michigan Upper Peninsula, West Virginia, South Florida, Chicago South Side, The Outer Banks. We just ain't that unique.

    The people of this area have thought that same thing for a long time. There are alot of reasons we should but the powers that be to the north arent gonna let go of their golden goose.

    SoWal resident are pretty regular. Most SoWal visitors (and newcomer) however consider themselves to be quite elite and throwing a little money around means they own the place.

    I agree. I have a family member that always bragged to her friends in Alabama that she vacationed in Grayton Beach. If she only knew how Grayton and the locals really were back in those days (mid to late 80s)

    Interesting that you should say that, from Niceville.
