Yes, but not sure we could stand ourselves with all those extra miles of coastline. Hmmm, would love to try though.
Only if we get all of Santa Rosa Island and Ft Pickens St Park with free access to all those from Alabama
Fort Pickens is a national park. Just FYI.
What is FYI?
For your information.
Just think, Carla Moody Weatherly, you could have been born in Alabama if this had gone through.
I still would have gone to Auburn University. War Eagle!!!!!!!
Yes I do
Panama City Alabama!!! PCA!!
Born in Alabama, raised in Northwest Florida, I tell people I’m from L.A. (Lower Alabama) Roll Tide!
I thought it was! Born in south Florida, live in Hoover Al. for 25 Years. Came back home in 2001. Still love and miss Alabama
Yeah, let West Florida (panhandle) secede and become its own country. 🙂
For the money, yes, but then alabama would look like a box
Ya should,Dothan is like what a little over 30 minutes from Panama City!
Only if they take Tallahassee too!
Love the history lessons on this site. Thank you.

No Florida sucks!
Awesome come back!!
