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.

Aloha from DiamondHead

Tomorrow we are going to take a helicopter around Maui.
A climb up DiamondHead is on the agenda before we leave the isles


what a great climb this was. overlooking the dead sea in a place loaded with history . I was given a rams horn to blow at the top of the mount which echoed in the canyon surrounding Masada. This horn which is meant to stir the soul will now be blown at the top of every summit. Onward and Upward.


we actually drove to the top, not quite to the summit. It was getting dark and we did not actually climb. however this is a fantastic peak i hope to return to conquer some day.

Tippy top of Tibidabo

The most recent summit. The top of tibidabo In Barcelona. Two train a bus a funicular elevator and steps led to the foot of Christ.. Literally. The very top of the basillico @ tibidabo gave us breath taking 360 degree
views of barcellona freezing temperature and very strong winds were part of the bargain. onward and upward!

Mount Junipero Serra Next

The next scheduled climb is Mt Junipero Serra near Big Sur.
5,900 ft. currently have 4 climbers committed to go up

Mt Saint Helena

Today we reached summit of Mt St Helena. we climbed the robert lewis stevenson trail.There was alot of snow ,downed power lines helicopters and alot of mud. The crew was Lee shrieter, scott hamilton, joe ciotti and I. Up and down in 6 hours. No visibilty at the top , great views most of the way up. 4343 ft. now im looking for 5000+ for next climb. Onward and Upward!

I have ticket to Nairobi

I have ticket to Nairobi Kenya for 12/21/09! . It is a one hour flight from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro. My amigo Dave Knoll has committed to the climb and has his ticket as well. Flight tickets are a big step closer, it is for real now!

The next summit is Mt Helena. At 4343 ft rising from the Napa valley this climb leads to a view of Mt Shasta and with binoculars downtown San Francisco. this summit should be reached within 10 days.

Onward and Upward!

Diablo Done Deal

Lee and I left from elephant rock at 9:02am , climbed the rock city trail through the trail of time and on up the the summit trail. we reached the summit @ 12:25pm. There was no view the entire climb. The fog was very thick and it was windy and cold at the top. On the way down we dropped below the fog and clouds and the views were spectacular. 12 mile round trip 3849 ft Summit made for a long and tiring day. Onward and Upward!
