sorry. Some people end up loving it.
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:
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.
Why not Minot?
Freezin's the reason.
minot will grow on you...
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
I hear the missile side of minot sucks
True statement. Things are getting better though. Oh yeah... mosquitos suck! No pun intended.
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.
they'll never be as good as F.E.
It's F.E.'s turn buddy. Last I heard, Malmstrom ate it pretty bad recently.
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.
If you can't take minot your a poosy.
just wear a lot of layers in the winter and a lot of bug repellent in the summer and you'll be fine.
Wow... sound just like where you grew up.
i am coming from Davis-monthan and i was really hoping to never leave!
but this might be cool...
and i am over the whole HS girl thing lol
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.
my old roommate will be there in a couple months doing SF.
He knows no one there. You should be fwends.
and hook up with some High school chicks.. and drink booze until your liver goes out..
You are starting off pretty good so far. I have learned that fun is what you make of it. It may be a different kind of fun, but just roll with it. We throw it down pretty hard in ND and some shit may be a lil redneck, but nobody can fuckin roll as hard and deep as we do.
