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.

My "43 things" road trip

In the summer of 2010 I hopefully be doing a road trip across the United States. I’m not going to plan a route or a destination. I’m going to sit in my car and drive…............

I am so tired of sitting at my desk staring at the computer screen for hours at a time fantasying about my “potential” I was tired of thinking of “what if”, when I should’ve asked myself “why not?”.

you’ve got the right idea mate! I’m thinking of doing the same thing…i’m sick and tired of being a drone…finishing uni and going to work in an office. I want to travel. I like the idea of just going, and driving randomly! :D. Any ideas on what you’re going to do car wise? I’m looking for some ideas – eg u hiring a car or buying? I was thinking of hiring but I was advised to buy in east coast then sell it when I move on.

elizabethmerchant is having a great day.

Fashion girl start from here--—fashion product, i order from here, the best service, the excellent quality, Love it. Tell all my friends about that website.

Do you have any ideas of things you’d like to see along the way? Or are you totally winging it? I’m planning a solo cross country road trip later this year too, but I think I might do an out-and-back trip (yes, I’m crazy!), taking a more northern route from east to west, and a more southern route back to the east coast. I’m working on a list of places I absolutely must check out along the way. I’ve visited a lot of the desert southwest a bunch of times, so I don’t feel like I need to see that as much as some of the other areas of the country.

Have you traveled in the US at all before? There really are some places that it would be a shame to miss while you’re here!
