POW Prisoner of Whittier Alaska AK not Whittier California. Once you go thru the tunnel by vehicle or train, or get there by boat or plane you will want to leave in 15 minutes. You can also trek across the glacier to get there. The under 300 permanent residents, who steal furniture from each other during the winter, are warped crazy people. Whittier AK is an ice free deep water port located in beautiful Prince William Sound. Most of the permanent residents live in the Begich Towers, a massive hulking German Bunker like building that withstood the massive 1964 earthquake. The city is a Monet painting gone bad, there are no fields of poppies only madness depression and great halibut fish and chips. The city has not been the same since Ross Knight stopped running the Sportsman’s. There are good interior camp sites at the Buckner Building for 30 dollars per night, hand your 30 dollars to any permanent resident and tell them where you are camping and they will be happy to take your money.
Be sure to Drink at The Bloated Dog, Fish on the Mighty O or the FV About Time, toss one back at the Hunchback Chum.
