Modern Gypsies Compassionate Adventure

My buds, the Modern Gypsies (Eric Post, Taylor Filasky, and John Post) have completed their first Compassionate Adventure and produced a series of cool videos that are starting to appear on Vimeo. On this expedition, they travelled to Ecuador and climbed Cotopaxi (the same peak our Soldiers To Summits team climbed last December). Then the Gypsies took their adventure to the next level by installing a well in a remote town to provide clean, safe water for the locals. Great stuff!  

Morocco "Expedition Possible" Adventure

Join my No Limits team and the Modern Gypsies for an adventure of a lifetime! Anyone who watched the ABC television show "Expedition Impossible" will know that my friends (Jeff Evans and Ike Isaacson) were the runner-ups to those pesky Gypsies (Taylor Filasky, Eric Bach, and John Post) in month-long adventure race across scenic Morocco. And you also know that, despite the competition, we all became lifelong friends.

Blind For A Day

I want to give a big shout out to Anna Chouler in Scarborough England. The television show Expedition Impossible is airing on the other side of the pond and she was inspired by Team No Limits. Anna decided to raise awareness for the blind and to raise money for guide dogs by wearing a blindfold for an entire day. Her goal was to raise $800...and she ended up raising almost $1,000! Anna wrote on her page:

Expedition Possible!

Mark Burnett isn't the only one creating incredible adventures. This past Labor Day, we invited friends to our place near Rollinsville, Colorado for a mini-expedition. Called Expedition Possible, twenty-four teams competed for the coveted prize: a picture of a Ford Explorer. The Explorer looked very much like the one presented to the Gypsies after their big win. It just wasn't as big.

Gypsies Colorado Adventure

Well this is the second week of withdrawal from Expedition Impossible and many of you may be feeling the lingering effects of going cold turkey. So I’ll brighten your day with some Gypsy love! As you know, we had a roaring party for the final episode that raised over $10,000 for No Barriers and Free The Children. Suffice to say, the party didn’t end when the show was over. So the next day, we got a late start and headed up to my house in the mountains about an hour from town.

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes Finale

Sure, we would have liked to win. But we were pretty happy coming in second to our friends, the Gypsies. They certainly deserved to win; after all they were first at nearly every stage and helped us squeak by several times throughout the challenges. However, Team No Limits was determined to make those Gypsy boys work for it! And we did get a lot of pleasure beating them in the sailing stage.

Interview with Jeff and me in Westword

Here's a good interview with the two of us by Colin Blane in Westword. Thanks, Colin!

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #9

I couldn’t believe it! What the heck just happened?! There was no way we were going to beat the Cops. Despite Ike hobbling as fast as he could, they had passed us on a brutal cross country push and had a 15 minute lead. Yet…somehow…we did it! But lets go back to the beginning. Only the day before, we had had the unlikeliest of wins over the California Girls. We woke up the next morning, partly in disbelief that we were still in the competition yet still facing the reality that a team with a blind guy and a badly sprained ankle didn’t have much chance.

Local paper covers Team No Limits

The Boulder Daily Camera recently ran an article about our team and the upcoming party at the Lazy Dog. Only one comment but at least it was a positive one.
