Iditarod 2009: Monday Note From Aliy

Aliy posted this at 11:14 this morning as a comment to last night's update... I don't know how many of you check the comments, so I'm posting it here:

Macgellan - HEY!!! Am here in UNK and on the table is a "Tommy Mac". Had to jump on quick and say hi to all.

It is blowing like ..... can't say publically. Will have Bullet in lead in an hour or so leaving to head to Shak. Paul, Dee, Jessie and I are heading out somewhat together.

Had to leave Besty and Petunia here though. Tunes is sore in her front end. Betsy has gotten a little thin. Hope that you will have them in Nome ASAP and you can give them plenty of hugs and belly rubs.

Here we go. See you soon..


There you have it direct from Aliy! Her GPS tracker still appears to be busted, so we'll have to just watch the leader board! Stay tuned!

Dear MacGellan,
I'm Aliy's uncle's girlfriend, and I just want to thank you for your posts. They've all been great, but the one about Happy truly "spoke to me." I've also been interested in Spot, so let us know how she's doing on Allen's "B-team." Can't wait to see the footage of you kissing Happy's bottom in Nome! Keep up the good work. We're all glued to the blog!

Saw Aliy pull out of Unk a little bit ago on the webcam. I could recognize her by the sponsor patches - we've been playing 'guess which musher' all day, but she made it easy on us. She and the dogs looked good, and she had enough to energy to help them out by kicking behind the sled. Safe travels to Shaktoolik and beyond!
