We're continuing our Ultimate Alaska road trip today and heading through a mountain on North America's longest highway tunnel. Once in Whittier, we're taking you on one of Alaska's most beautiful hikes over Portage Pass for epic views of Portage Glacier.
We spend the night in Whittier, cut off from the rest of the world and show you why this is considered one of the most isolated towns in North America.
All summer, we're exploring, sharing stories and meeting the people of the 49th State.

We're Howard and Katelyn Newstate, full-time RVers and travelers exploring around the world since 2018. Whether jet setting or in our 2019 Winnebago Navion 24D, each week we take you along with us to discover the people, food and culture of every Newstate we explore.
We’re Howard and Katelyn... the Newstate Nomads. Two work-from-home, traveling fools who decided to take this show on the road and live in a 200 sq. foot box (2019 Winnebago Navion 24D) with our two ridiculously cute dogs, Piper and Ella.
