Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Visit the Great Lakes Brewing Co (and whatever else is interesting in Cleveland, OH) (read all 9 entries…)
Another goal

that I gave up on because I was being surly ;)

This one goes back on the list.


Iron Man is one busy hombre

When I first read this, my mind automaticly filled in the blanks that weren't there,

and I thought it said Lake Superior Brewing Company. That’s up in Duluth at the head of the lakes. Maybe that’s a place you might consider sometime too. Tasty stuff. They make a great pale ale.

Maybe you could have a separate goal to visit various micro-breweries.


I've been to

a microbrewery or brewpub in Duluth or Superior (when I went canoeing in Voyageurs NP with my sister several years ago), but I don’t remember if it was this one or not. I’ll have to check on it the next time I’m driving through that area :)

idkbrblol ♫♪ I'm goin' off the rails on a gravy train ♫♪ ☺

Up near there [boring]

(maybe boring)
Up near Cedar Point (across the bay) is a little “haunted” hill / Jurassic park thing. I asked the attendant point-blank if it was really “haunted,” he said something like, “well, I let people believe what they want.” While near there, I didn’t detect anything weird.
(There’s also a small set of caves SouthEast of Fremont, I think.)


I'll have to

look into that- thanks for the info :)

I've actually

been there twice in the last few years, I’ve just procrastinated with posting about it ;)

I’ve done several items that were on my list for Cleveland- I’ve met Surly and Tartsy there and visited Cuyahoga Valley National Park (I only had one day there and will definitely go back) and Great Lakes Brewing Co. I should probably mark this as completed, although I’d still like to see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I’m sorta unhappy with them for not voting Heart in this year, though!

Cleveland is only about 5 hours from where I lived (and where all of my siblings still live) in Northwest Indiana so it’s somewhat reasonable for me to get there, even though it’s a long way from Denver. But since I’m visiting family during those trips, I’ve only spent a couple days at a time around Cleveland.

Do you have any other suggestions to visit in the area?

TG has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
