Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #2 and 3

Episode #2 As promised, here is some more of the backstory on Expedition Impossible. Things have been pretty hectic lately—the second episode aired during the opening ceremonies of the No Barriers Summit and I was giving a talk in London as the third episode aired—so I’m combining these reports.

BrainPort on BBC

Here's a short video of my climbing Castleton Tower, near Moab Utah, while using the BrainPort vision device. This is an excerpt from a TV special on BBC. It has shown in the UK but not on this side of the pond yet.

Adventure TEAM Challenge success!

To sum it up, this year’s Adventure TEAM Challenge represented true adventure. Billy Mattison, the race director, described adventure as, “Going forward when your destination and future are uncertain and there is risk.” Billy knows about risk and how to minimize it: he has won an Eco-Challenge, co-owns a rafting company (Timberline Tours), and is avalanche director of the Vail ski patrol. His goal was to create a course with acceptable risk, and plenty of challenge.

Expedition Impossible Premier Party

Last Thursday, Jeff Evans and I met up with 200+ friends at the Lazy Dog sports bar on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder to watch the premier of Team No Limits and Expedition Impossible. It was a GREAT time but I must admit it was so noisy that I missed most of the show and had to watch it the next day.

Expedition Impossible Behind The Scenes #1

I hope you enjoyed the first episode of Expedition Impossible, which aired last night on ABC! Somebody sure did because the show was ranked #1 among adults 18 to 49, teens 12 to 17, and kids 2 to 11—the highest rating the network has had on Thursday night since the finale of Lost in 2008. While I can’t tell you anything about future episodes, as long as Team No Limits hangs in there, I will post some stories about what happened that you don’t see on the camera.
