OK, I live in Juneau and we are on the continent of North America just like those other 48 states (Hawaii is the only non-continental state). I believe the word you meant to use is contiguous not continental. We are not part of the contiguous U.S. because none of Alaska touches the other 48 states. We aren't 'contiguous' but we are continental.
