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.

Rush Lake Preview

Gusty, but KimmeeG and I drove out to check out the conditions. One Kiter passed us heading out of town in his honda Element, he seemed curious but not stupid to get into the conditions just yet. We pondered the entrance to the lake and didn’t feel like getting the passat high centered like the I did the time in the San Rafael Swell and I was rescued by a prayer to Lauree the Reverand. We drove out gathered silver sage by the mine tailings and wondered about the contamination from the area. “Is it safe?” K. asks. “Not Sure” I respond, “U-tube has pretty good footage, but”. The light was changing fast and as we drove out of town we pulled off the side of road, to the watch the sunset. It was specactular, the Utah western light always makes me tear up, Hawaii has nothing on our sunsets, surprisingly. We didn’t need to talk much, we both knew K should have brought her paints, and I hoped that the sage I collected was enough to replace the sage I had been using up at the Shaman’s house. I learned something that night to follow your gut and get out of the house more, take a friend, and remember to receive the gifts that you were not expecting. I so heart Alpine Glow. —xojk
