Moments later, I opened my email to this. He went on, "I really want to make something nice." Anyone who has dealt in transportation knows, Alaska is one of those hard-to ship locations. So for Joe Carter to source shafts locally, he not only saved himself quite a bit of money, he also saved himself quite a headache. Sometimes, the best way to become a flag flyer, is not to buy a prepackaged pole kit, but to get creative and make your own. And that is just what Carter did... three times over.

Now, atop the bluff facing Kachemak Bay, sit two flag displays which look out across the southern part of Cook Inlet into the Gulf of Alaska. Truly breath taking. People passing through town stop to admire the craftsmanship and Carter takes them on an unbelievable flag story.
