An Alaskan


Talkeetna Sydney Carpenter was born two weeks early in the log cabin outside Talkeetna, Alaska, that his parents had bought to start their new life in Alaska. Three years after Talkeetna's birth, the family welcomed another son into the world. Talkeetna's mother worked in town doing various tourism related jobs and his father worked at home writing stories for magazines and working on his novel. Talkeetna, or Talc as he came to be called, spent his early years hunting, fishing, snowmachining*, dog mushing, and simply enjoying the outdoors. Far from their nearest neighbors, Talkeetna's playmates were his brother and the family's team of Alaskan Huskies. His diet was made up mostly of food that grew in the area, moose meat, salmon, various wild berries such as salmonberries and blueberries, and an assortment of hardy plants from the garden such as rhubarb and cabbages. He was home schooled, though stuff in books interested him little. Stuff on television interested him even less. Talkeetna first flew in a bush plane as a toddler and loved it. That love never faded he now flies both as his job and for pleasure. Talkeetna works as a charter pilot, flying hunters, fishermen, and sightseers to remote parts of the state. His favorite plane is his Super Cub.
