Yep, for the past 9 1/2 years... Are u military? I found a sweet deal.... 1800 sq feet with an in ground pool for 1400 a month right behind harbor walk... By the time I called it had already... Still looking though. I've broadened my search to Ft. Walton beach and niceville... Trying to avoid Crestview like the plague!!!

Branch?

What I know of in Florida for military is Army SF and Airforce telecom.

Are you either?

Nope, not military. I moved here in 2001 because i just got tired of NC and wanted something new. Which base will you be assigned to? if it is Eglin, you will want to live in either FWB, Shalimar or Niceville/Valpariaso. If it is Hulbert Feild, you want to look in FWB or Navarre. I think I have also heard of a new Army base being built around here too. Probably be most convenient for you to find a place in Fort Walton Beach for proximity reasons.

Traffic is pretty frustrating here, because almost everything is on Hwy 98, so I recommend finding something close to the highway.

Overall, it is a pretty cool place to live. You are still a young guy, so you will like the nightlife and there are tons of pretty young women down here. Beaches are beautiful, and it is a beach casual atmosphere. Accually, I dont think I will ever leave.

I go out alot, so hit me up when you get here, and I'll show you a few of the "local's" watering holes if you're up for it.

Oh, and you are right, Crestview is a boring place to live. Avoid at all cost.

Need to get to know all of you better. I've been wanting to vacation in the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area for a long time but have never made it. Need to establish connections in that area so I know exactly what type of place I am looking into, you can't always trust what you see in pictures or read in descriptions...

I will let u know when I get there... I went down for a week earlier in the summer and I FUGGIN loved it!!!!

On another note... Chris999, I heard from one if my buddies that it is pointless to buy the Sunday ticket down there because it rains so much that I'd be luck to watch any if the games. I guess the satellite goes out all the time due to the rain.. any truth to this? What do u do on game days down there? Go to B dubs or what?

I had Dish network, and really the only time i lost signal during a storm was if it was one that had a warning with it. Even then about 90% of the time i didn't loose signal. Most people here have dish or direct. Game Days go to Helenback, b dubs, there are a few different places to go.

we are accually in the middle of a terrible drought. i has rained one day here in the past 4 months...

I couldnt tell you about Sunday Ticket because i have never had it, but i just go to the bars to watch the game.

And yes... It will be cool to have some panther fans down here. i have been holding down the fort by myself since 2001.

I dont have time to respond to everyones posts today, so if anyone wants to ask me any questions, just PM me.
