a. A cute little town in Alaska to visit for a week, especially in the summer. You can take airplane tours, go fishing, and do a lot of different drugs. A good place to find yourself.
b. A small town in Alaska where a group of young people are trapped. They have no AP, no museums (see Smithsonian), no clubbing, no concerts, and no internet. A good place to get wasted, pregnant, or bitten by mosquitoes.
"Now that we've evacuated New Orleans," said George W. Bush, "We should really do something about Talkeetna."
A great place to find drunk climbers and teenagers in cars. A place that is a party in the summer and a fucking pit of coldness in the winter. A place where the school is shit, drugs are the way to go, and bums sleep at the baseball field. A place where if you tell one person everyone knows. A place of no secrets and plenty of hippies. A place where people come to hide from the law.
Person walks into Talkeetna general store: "Yo, where can you buy pot?"
Store Clerk: "Stand in the park and someone will find you."
