Iditarod 2010: "Aliy Cam" Nearing Nome

One last "Aliy Cam" video to wrap-up our Iditarod 2010 coverage.



In the week ahead, we'll also be wrapping-up our 2009-2010 racing season here on the Dog Log. This will include the list of links some of you have requested of "Aliy Cam" videos in chronological order. So… Stay tuned!

Wonderful coverage Aliy. Thanks - I hate to see it end.

I can't even begin to express my gratitude for letting me come along on the journey. Checking the dog log and following Aliy, Allen, Bridgett, and the dogs has become a part of my daily routine. Now that the season is coming to an end, I feel strangely disappointed. Not disappointed in the amount of coverage or the performance of all of the amazing athletes, but disappointed that my vicarious adventure is over until next year.

I hope you all enjoy your off season, but I will be anxiously awaiting the return of fall. I can't wait for the next journey to begin!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This one was just delightful. Listening to Aliy, still so upbeat after all the miles and all the challenges getting there. Loved hearing her talking to and talking about the dogs. I think Tatfish knew the end of the race was near and time he could let go a little. Wasn't he just as eager as Rosie to get to the sidelines for some petting when they got into Nome? I hope he's had his couch time by now.

This coverage has been so cool! Thank you for everyone's efforts. Any thought to producing a DVD of this year's Iditarod?

Thank you so much for allowing us to follow along Aliy's journey (and thank you to Aliy for taking us with you!) to Nome.

I sure am going to miss seeing the vids, that's for sure, and I hope she'll do it again next year.

Will there be any off season updates to this blog? I've enjoyed it so much.

Thank you again!

The videos are nothing short of fantastic. They capture the entire range of the Iditarod experience.
The exhilaration of the start, the intense concentration on the Steps,
the relentless fatigue, the apprehension about overflow at 40 below, open water on the Yukon and the cracks and pressure ridges on the sea ice.
They also show the musher's love for Alaska and for the dogs along with the raw emotion of the last mile in to Nome. Great work everyone. This is by far the best
kennel website.Thank you all for a job well done.

Mac, I don't want to sound ungrateful, but is it possible to tell us a little bit more about the dropped dogs?

Thank you Aliy and team for the opportunity for my students to following your dog teams journey to Nome! We loved it!

For those who would like to go with Aliy to the ANWR, there is a super video on the website (and long one, too) with more fantastic views of Alaska! I have high speed and watched it here:

Great video of ANWR! Loved it all especially seeing the pups run and their tounge's hanging out! Wish I could be there!

Lynn said...

These video have been spectacular!! Are you planning to do interviews with Aliy and Allen like you did after the Copper Basin, and maybe tell us alittle more about the dropped dogs? How much longer are you going to be there doing what you do now that the racing season is over? We miss you already!!
