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.

"Trying" geocaching

has turned into an obsession. My youngest and my oldest are both into it. We have been having fun finding these all over town – every park is loaded with them. Even places you would least expect to find them…
We are hoping to do a lot of hiking and geocaching in the N. Georgia mountains over spring break.

lob is excited about grad school...

I think so too...

very addicting! I love to go geocaching with my sons. How many have you found so far? Which was your favorite cache so far?

we have found

21 so far. I enjoy solving the puzzle type – just for the added challenge. We all prefer the larger sized caches that have stuff for trading. I’m really into moving travel bugs around now.

I really don’t like micros – especially those out in the middle of busy areas. My oldest tells me I’m really bad at looking stealthy. ;)


purplefibermom has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.

 

I want to:
