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.

I need to buy some boots. I have no idea where to start. I guess I’ll go to REI and hope the guys there know what’s good and start with that information.


Shopping for a backpack… yay! :D


Sierras in the Spring! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Now I need to start shopping for equipment. I’m going to evaporate my pee like I saw on TV, just so I can say I did. Sexy, huh? =P


Got some books from the library. I need to get in better shape for this.


Went to a climbing class last night. I already knew everything he said, but I got a handy handout with some terms that I didn’t already know, so that’s something. And I got to climb. No, I didn’t go just for that. I swear. Really. You believe me, right?

Going to a GPS 101 class tonight, and getting some backpacking books from the library.


Yay. Ryan’s in. We still have no idea when or where, but a partner is a step.


Okay, went to the thing the other day. Will be going to another, more detailed one. Oh, and the instructor seemed more than a little distracted from instructing because he was too busy trying to flirt with me. He all but ignored the other people there, and I felt a little weird about that. He was hot but I couldn’t do much but smile and blush with all those people there. When everyone was leaving, he stopped me to tell me to come back and ask for him if I think of any questions, and that he’d help me shop if I wanted. I’m pretty sure I’m going to need help with at least a few questions at some point. =P


Going to a thing at REI to learn basics.

Every time I go camping,

people always want to bring pre-packaged foods, and take the sites with running water and electricity. Uhh… what’s the point? But my cousin has made and mapped a trail through an area of wilderness in Indonesia… alone. So, I’d say that he’d be up for it. =P
