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.

Jun's Road Trip

I am absolutely petrified. I am landing in Oklahoma to start my US roadtrip this time next month. The reason i am starting in the middle of the country is that my friend wants to go storm chasing. A ridiculous hobbie if you ask me.

Thats not what terrefies me. Its the fact that i have nothing planned. No destination, No People to meet, No camera to film and edit the film and most importantly no car!


Like the Twister


Have you considered traveling by train?

Remember, you have 43T friends you can see. This includes old hopped if you can make it up here during your visit.

Hello Steven

I should really watch the twister film as a point of reference but i’m afraid that’s going to scare the bejesus out of me.

I have considered travelling around by train and i’m sure at one point i’m going to train part of my journey but if thats the case i feel like i’m cheating on the “Drive Across the USA” aim :s

You see a funnel cloud

drive the other way. LOL

You’ll have fun. I’m sure of it! What states do you plan to see and who do you plan to meet from 43 Things?

ChasityTaylor is wishing she was sleeping soundl

I think it’s cool that you’ve taken the first step to make this road trip happen. Hope all the other steps fall in place. Good Luck!
