My name is Keith John Carpenter. Yeah that’s me. I’m not sure where the name actually originates except my parents wanted to make sure they stayed with the K. My middle name is the same as my grandfather Anthony John Oreb and his father. Carpenter…pretty much a cool family name.
I hatched in Grangeville, ID on Mount Idaho at 4600 ft. The air was clean and cold on that January 12th day. I am pretty sure my parents sent me out to split the firewood the next week.
