    Born and Raised there.

    Step #1: You will be classified as a 'Baser' and people prolly won't like you at first.

    Step #2: Don't be a douche-bag. We know it is Minot, so please don't start everything you say with "Back Home, blah blah blah was better"

    Step #3: Remove any and all Tint that you have from your vehicle. Cops are gay and you WILL get a ticket

    Step #4: Leave the H.S. girls alone. Basers have a really bad rap

    Step #5: If you want to go deer hunting, don't shoot llamas

    Step #6: Become really good at drinking. (Few decent bars and One good gentlemans club: Envy)

    Step #7: Drive careful when it snows. The side of the road from the base to town is notorious for collecting asshats in the winter

    Any other specifics, there are a few OG Minoters on OT.

    Also born and raised in Minot. What bader said is mostly correct.

    Also, if you're in to cars:

    http://www.northernanimation.com/forum/

    register there, don't be a fag.

    I cannot STRESS enough do NOT tell everyone how cool back home was. If you want to have a miserable existence in Minot, that's going to be the fastest way to do it.

    I've got a TON of friends that are and were military and a lot of them either still live in Minot or have moved on but those that have left still talk about how much they miss the area.

    If you're in to guns (who the fuck isn't?) join the Minot Rifle and Pistol Club. They have an AMAZING outdoor facility and an indoor facility that is also very nice. It's only $50/year and you can come and go as you please.

    There is an 1/8 mile drag strip in town, dirt track racing if you're in to that, the state fair is there at the end of july which is a good time and usually has some decent concerts (theory of a deadman opening for motley crue one show this year) and if you like titties Envy is the place. OT user PUREVIL owns that club.

    And if you've never experienced winter, I'd recommend a good set of boots, a nice hat, some good gloves, and spare no expense on a winter coat. ;)

    I'm an OG Minoter

    Yes, it gets cold. Grow balls and don't complain about it. It's just going to make your stay in Minot that much worse.

    If you're of age, the bars are the best thing to do around there. If you're not, there's not a damn thing to do. Bowling, goin up and down Broadway, the fair in the summer, races on Sunday nights.

    When I was in high school, I dated a baser and he was good stuff (be the good stuff). If you're leaving a place where you're a douchebag to begin with, don't even think about trying to get with a high school girl.

    Basically, don't be a cock and you'll be fine.

    The military guys in Minot always seem to end up hitting on or trying to fuck the HS girls. If the guy is hot, super flattering. If he's ugly and weird as fuck, that's when I carry MACE

    you do know that most of what you listed goes for about 90% of the U.S. NO one wants to hear why some place is better then another.. but I am assuming that if some one was trying to tell you why Florida was better than ND you would listen and not get huffy and puffy about it.. because it prob. is.

    Born and raised in N.D--joined the AF so I could get the heck out of N.D. Minot is a dump (gotten better though) hot as hell in the summer and cold like you cant believe in the winter because of the damn wind. Considered for the longest time the worst base in the AF. 10 people in my basic class got orders there and wanted to trade with me and unless they offered me 10k I wouldn't even think of it, lol

    I was there a little over 4yrs, but have since PCSed to Maxwell. They covered most of it above. You just have to make the best of it. These little things will piss you off, I enjoyed shooting them.

    just wear a lot of layers in the winter and a lot of bug repellent in the summer and you'll be fine.

    you never said what job you do. i'm guessing you might be a crew chief or some kind of maintainer because we're getting a lot of new guys in over the next few months.
