Expedition Impossible: The Kingdom of Morocco + Barefoot Running Book Free

The Premier of "Expedition Impossible: The Kingdom of Morocco" is next Thursday, June 23rd, on ABC, at 9E/8C. From producer Mark Burnett, 13 teams of three will do the extraordinary, solving problems and competing in the biggest adventure of their lives. The three-person teams will find themselves racing across vast deserts, over snow-capped mountains and through raging rivers in the beautifully exotic, fabled Kingdom of Morocco. It looks pretty cool and, since it's Thursday night, I might stay up past my bedtime to watch! (I'm either off or teleworking Fridays, so being a little tired isn't as big a deal.)


Jason Robillard is giving away his book, The Barefoot Running Book, in PDF version, for free, over at Head over and check it out - or, if you like hardcopies, head over to Amazon to buy the Barefoot Running Book.


  1. I am pretty excited to watch this one, I must say. The whole concept plus Morocco makes it cool.

  2. I would love to be on that show. My brother and I talked about auditioning for The Amazing Race, but his sense of humor and tendency to say really really effed up things would lead to us being painted as the hillbilly racists of the show, so we never auditioned.

  3. Dude, no one man has single-handedly changed the definition of the word "reality" as much as Mark Burnett has. But I agree with MZ, the Moroccan scenery will be nice.

  4. I'm looking forward to this as well. It's fun to see what people do when placed in unusual circumstances.

    Thanks for the heads up on the book as well!

  5. My kid and I watch all things Mark Burnett. Thanks for the tip Kovas. Old buddy of mine.
