YQ: Video Catch-Up

It's a very quiet day here at the kennel so here are come catch-up videos taken during the earlier parts of the Quest.

Firstly, Aliy and the Red Team's Yukon Quest 300 Journey to take 2nd place:

Then, Aliy talks about the Black Team while they are resting at the Dawson Dog Camp:

Finally: here's a perspective of the first 1.5 miles of the trail from the "Quest Guest" sled. If you are in Fairbanks next year for the start you should definitely bid on one of these rides! You get to go on the actual Quest trail!

Quest Guest video exemplifies exactly the beauty and being a true team with animals.

I love this video. Aliy wanted to know what do fans want to know? anything Aliy, Anything you want to tell us. We adore watching you cover up the dogs, you know who likes a head covered and who does not. What a great musher and woman and dog humanitarian (is that a term?)you are.

The beginning of the YQ 1,000 and 300 seems like a LONG time ago....and Dog Camp is always fun to revisit! Im sad its over for another year! But at least we have the videos to remind us of the journey!! Thanks for putting these together....great job!

Enjoy the "time off" while you can....its about to get quite hectic again!

I always look forward to Dawson. What a treat to ride along with Allen. Such strength to pull three adults and gear. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the catch up. Love the fact that Aliy knows exactly how each dog likes to be covered with his/her blanket. The quest guest ride is long, very nice.

What great videos!
I got to watch the gathering of the pile at the end of Aliy's race from another video. Aliy's conversation with the dogs was so much fun. "What can I say, I'm a crazy driver?"
LOVED seeing the pups tucked in Dawson, always do.

Seeing all the fans and Allen's interaction on the Quest Guest video was great as well. Thanks for sharing!

I should have watched the last video before commenting ... that was FUN! Those White Horse folks know how to turn out for a party, don't they?
