Yay! Never been there, but I know you're so happy to have your info for your return to the states. That was in the area you were hoping to get, right?

Meh ... out of the 4 choices, it was the bottom on our list. We wanted South Dakota or California, but I'm still excited.

I've been there...I was actually stationed at Cavalier AFS (a few hours east) in North Dakota but I had a lot of friends at Minot and hung out there whenever I could. The town in pretty decent...pretty good restuarants and shops for being a town in North Dakota. My only real complaint (besides the obviously long winter) is that the base is kinda annoying far away from the town. In other words, you have to drive into town from base to get to stuff. Oh, and also it's expensive to fly out of Minot.

On the positive side, there is lots of outdoor recreation and wide open spaces. And the cost of living is low.

Congrats on getting orders!!

I've been there and liked it a lot better than other bases I've been on. DH was stationed there when we met, before he got out of the AF. Honestly I didn't think the drive from town to the base was bad. It's a straight drive, only turning is to get to the front gate.

As for the cold, DH is from TX and I am from ND. He takes the cold a lot better than I do. Just get a good winter jacket (like Columbia). Also invest in a good remote starter for your car (Astro Start are the best). Cost of living is pretty good here, we were able to buy our house for LESS than a friend that bought a trailer home in MN.
