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.

SallyKitt has written 12 entries about this goal

12) Pacific Crest Trail

Sort of a long winding park that goes from Mexico to Canada up the spine of California. We only did about 2 miles.

11) The Alamo - September 2012

Interesting. But they wouldn’t let me take pix inside. Sigh.

10) The Getty Center

Where we took a drawing class. October 21, 2012.

9) Cole Porter Birthplace

Couldn’t get inside, but we haunted the front porch.

8) Acton 4th of July Parade

Celebrating it’s 50th year, I think it’s okay to call this an institution. This is the small SoCal town my husband and I moved to 12 1/2 years ago.

The Blum Ranch has been a family business here since the late 1800s. We can see the peach orchards across the valley from our house. Local heroes in my book.

Great day. Lots and lots of pix. A few more on my blog Any Given Sundry

7) Sequoia National Forest

Just got into the park a little way after we went white water rafting. Drove maybe ten miles up the Kern River Valley. Want to explore this side more.

6) Arroyo Seco Golf Course Trail

Walked the dogs with my friends here after going to a reading in the city and spending the night at their house. Great beginning to the day. The photo is of street art on the base of a tunnel that passes under the 110 freeway at the entrance to the trail that passes by the golf course.

Never mind the water politics involved in putting a water-sucking golf course in a place called, in Spanish, Dry Canyon.

5) Paramount Ranch / Topanga Banjo-Fiddle Contest & Folk Music Festival - 5/20/2012

Went to a great music festival at Paramount Ranch,

4) Vasquez Rocks County Park

Terrific two hour hike with my husband. This is on the other side of the park from the famous rocks where Captain Kirk fought a really sluggish gator-foe.

3) Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area

In both March and April. This is my amazing niece on the rocks near the creek.
