Watch the Expedition Impossible finale with the Gypsies and No Limits!

So now it can be told...the Gypsies are coming to Boulder! Not only that but also the host of Expedition Impossible, David Salmoni, and the Executive Producer, Lisa Hennessy, too. It's going to be an exciting night at the Lazy Dog! And we will raise money for No Barriers (my charity) and Free The Children (Gypsies charity).

Team No Limits hosting a No Barriers fundraiser

Join Team No Limits to watch the final episode of Expedition Impossible and help support No Barriers! Jeff, Ike, and I are hosting a party at the Lazy Dog Lounge in Boulder, Colorado on Thursday, August 25th. The $20 cover ($10 for kids) will go to charity. We will have entertainment before the show, tales of adventure, and a live auction of memorabilia from the show. Plus special guests!

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #8

Before I fill you in on some of the backstory from last week’s episode, I’d like to share a few comments that mean so much to Jeff, Ike, and me. The three of us suffered a lot over this month-long adventure. But sentiments like these make all that pain and discomfort worth it! Whitney wrote:

Prior to this episode, a lot of people have been asking about Ike because he has been underrepresented on the show. At last, Ike had his chance to shine! It’s crazy that there have been so many opportunities to get hurt—running along riverbeds, jumping off cliffs, charging down rocky slopes, plunging through snowfields—and Ike trashes his ankle getting into a taxi. In Morocco, there is a gutter between the sidewalk and the road and that’s what caught his foot.

Team No Limits entry to Expedition Impossible

Tonight's a big night for Team No Limits on Expedition Impossible! It's safe to say that this will be a game changer...and leaping off a waterfall was just a warm up for this episode. Will you be watching? Before Jeff, Ike, and I became reality TV stars, we had to get on the show. Part of the lengthy application process for all the teams was putting together a brief video that told the producers why we should be selected. As you can tell, we took this very seriously!

Expedition Impossible Teaser #7

Here is a teaser commercial for Thursday's episode where Ike gets more attention than he wanted! ABC hasn't figured out online videos so this may or may not play on your browser.

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #6

Another tough stage in Morocco! Lot’s of people commented on how beautiful the waterfall was at the beginning of the show, but I didn’t have a second to take in the beauty. Jeff and I were running down steep, broken, uneven stairs, crossing the river and scrambling along a narrow trail. Plenty of times a misstep to the left would have sent me plunging 50 feet off a cliff or tumbling down a rocky slope into the river.

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #5

Well ABC billed this episode as “A Blind Man’s Nightmare” and it lived up to the hype. Though relatively flat, this is the type of terrain that is brutally hard on me. The loose rocks and uneven ground are incredibly treacherous for sighted people too—witness John’s blown ankle. When I’m charging along behind Jeff or Ike, holding on to their pack, it’s impossible for them to warn me about every danger.

Expedition Impossible Behind the Scenes #4

As you can imagine, Team No Limits was pretty psyched for the stage in the Atlas Mountains! Jeff and I both live around 5,500 feet so we barely even felt the altitude. Ike is the flatlander who lives in Kansas. But he had climbed a 20,000-foot peak in Nepal with us back in October so he didn’t have much problem with the thin air either.

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.
