Aliy Zirkle’s State-of-the-Art Dog Sled (Updated)

Above is a cool video (in two parts) of musher Aliy Zirkle showing off her dog sled. She has used the same sled for all 12 of the Iditarods she has raced in thus far, and she’ll use it again for the 2013 race.

In Part 1, Aliy describes the sled’s exterior. In Part 2, she shows all of the supplies and equipment that go into the sled basket and how the basket is packed.

These Iditarod mushers carry a lot of equipment on the trail. I think the only thing she’s missing is a television set.
