Iditarod 2010: "Aliy Cam" Survived!

I am delighted -- and quite impressed, actually -- to report that the "Aliy Cam" survived the Iditarod!

As you know, a crash early in the race wiped out the camera's mount, but the camera itself never quit. In fact, it worked very well throughout, even when Aliy was sure it couldn't possibly still be working at all! Not only is Aliy's commitment to bringing you "on the trail" video pretty incredible -- especially after having to hand-hold all the filming! -- but I think you'll agree the quality of her footage and narration put her well into the catagory of amazing!

I now have several hours of "Aliy Cam" video that I will edit into episodes in the coming days. Although each segment tells a great piece of the story, I think that taken all together they will provide an astonishing Iditarod experience... Stay tuned!

That video camera needs to have it's own award!
It made it all the way to Nome!!!

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but you should contact the advertising agency for JVC and tell them about the toughness of their camera during the toughest race on earth. Would make a great commercial and Aliy could be a star (along with a few extra $$!) - - I can envision the entire ad campaign now...

Great video footage which none of us would see...
Thanks so much for organising this Mac.
I agree with Mary, contact JVC as this is pretty amazing.

I have followed the Iditarod for 5 years, and this has been the best - GPS plus your SP Kennel Log.

Have fun
