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.

Hit up a local climbing wall!

maybe one day i’ll actually go outdoors and top-rope some real rocks!

31 Make my own levain

(aka sourdough) i made mine by harvesting local yeast off the skins of locally grown apples. My bread has never been better and the older my levain gets the better my bread becomes


Get married in Vegas! By Elvis!


NFL Hall of Fame:
i stood between Bart Starr & Ray Nitschke’s busts!!!!


Rock n Roll Hall of Fame:
Best things there:
Joan Jett’s first car
original lyrics for Cherry Bomb & Clamptown
the room of amazing Elvis photos!


Corn Maze! Or as they spelled it there “Corn Maize” Heard so many bad corn puns there i thought my ears were gonna bleed, seriously it felt like bad puns were literally stalking me!

It was good simple fun (& harder to navigate w/out the map than i expected!)


Ride in a racecar!

It was basically the equivalent of a NASCAR car! pretty amazing experience! One of the coolest things i’ve done in my life!


Have a “secret swimming hole”:
Only a handful of people know about our secret swimming hole! we have 3 rules:
Rule #1: we don’t talk about SSH
Rule #2: We don’t talk about SSH
Rule #3: if it’s your first time at SSH you WILL jump off the rock!

24 Get a scooter

OK so cruising around on a scooter may actually be anti-cool BUT getting over 100mpg is always a great thing! i’ve wanted one for around the town use for a while & now i’m cruising in “style” hahaha.


Indoor surfing Pool:

Didn’t “surf” but did ride a body-board in one. It was a pretty neat experience, even if the water is a soup of chlorine and human secretions!
