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.

We renewed discussing this as a household goal

last night and I was looking at walking tour websites again. Probably can’t do it this year because I am scheduled to teach next summer and we won’t be able to schedule a couple weeks off together. Has anyone done one of these sorts of trips? Any advice? Any tour companies you liked? We want probably a 4 day trip at a fairly easy level. Right now walking 10 miles a day sounds like too much but 5-8 miles is probably doable at our fitness level. Perhaps in the next year and a half we could work ourselves up to a 10 mile per day with some hilly terrain level of skill. We want beautiful Scottish scenery and time to take breaks and look at wildlife, and our luggage carted to the next town ahead of us and good hearty pub meals and maybe some good local folk music?


Fun way to get more fit and have more endurance. Plus Scotland is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

Friede has gotten 29 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
