From Gould Academy to Expedition Impossible

Expedition Impossible competitor, and Gould Academy alumnus (2003), Eric Bach spends a few minutes with Peter talking about how one goes from Gould, and Bethel, Maine, to participating in a Mark Burnett produced reality television show in Morocco.

Expedition Impossible features thirteen teams of three, racing through ten epic stages, through the Moroccan Sahara; Bach is a member of “The Gypsies” team.

Bach talks about how the thread of his Gould experiences connect him to his Expedition Impossible participation and his future work. Gould’s experiential education gave a kid from Florida the opportunity to be in the mountains, and nature while living, working and learning with people from all over the globe.

Although he’s limited to what he can share regarding the show, Bach voiced special appreciation for the Berber people and the warmth and hospitality they showed to the contest cast and crew.

Bach, and The Gypsies, are working to parlay the reality television experiences into an adventure travel brand called The Modern Gypsies- dedicated to inspiring the compassionate adventurer in everyone. Their web site launches concurrently with the show:

They hope you’ll follow them on Twitter (@modern_gypsies) & Facebook as well.

The first episode of Expedition Impossible airs Thursday, June, 23 on ABC. Check your local listings for the showtime.
