Crazy larry and Northern Exposure…enjoying the town of Talkeetna

I remember watching the television show of Northern Exposure. I don’t remember any of the episodes, honestly. But, I’m currently in a bar in the town of Talkeetna listening to the Cure and Queen’s Radio Ga Ga feeling at home. But also feeling like I’m in a time warp of some sorts. Turns out that this town is what Northern Exposure was supposedly based upon. Who knows? But that is the mythology.

I’m enjoying the vibe, the food, and the bachelor auction. It’s fun and a small community where the goal is about living. The day-to-day of being a person experiencing life. Not the making of the living. At the bar, besides the bachelor auction, the talk at the bar centered around larry. I don’t know who larry is. But everybody knew him and were talking him. The talk was abouthHis zanizess in a small town. Oh Larry, wish I knew ya.

As a New Yorker, I get how Dr. Joel Fleischman had an interesting time adjusting. But, I must admit I love the small-town vibe that appears closer knit than other small towns I’ve come across in my travel.
