Nick Watt travels 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle through Alaska to find out just how remote you can be and still be in the USA. With a climate so unkind that the U.S. government pays Alaskan residents a share of the state's oil profits, Nick wonders: is it all about the oil or is there something else that draws people from around the world to lay down roots in the last frontier? How remote is too remote, and could he live there? Nick starts his journey in Anchorage with his sights set on Point Barrow, the most northerly point in the United States.
