fyi- Don't even think of buying outside of Minot, the snowplows will be the last to get to your crappy road. I doubt anybody military would ever cut you slack during the million recalls your job will call you in for. So, unless you plan on buying a commercial snowplow for your hillbilly sidestreets plan on loosing your job because you can't get out of your driveway! I'm assuming the guy who wrote you that advise isn't military. I mean, maybe you could live out of town if you were retired military & nobody expected you to be anywhere on time.
