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.

Drive to Guadalajara

Great City but the drive is a bit much.

Guadalajara is fantastic, the Centro Historical is great. The main Plaza around the Cathedral is as majestic as any main square I´ve seen in Europe. I miscalculated the mileage when I planned the trip and it was 400 miles more than I thought. Was it worth it? Driving 2900 miles alone is daunting but now I have the reality of the return and the next 2900 miles. I think I´d fly next time it would probbly be cheaper than driving – Especially since I´d skip Vegas if I flew. Was it worth it? You bet it was! I´ve been roaring along listening to Grateful Dead tapes and yes, it has been a ´long strange trip´

Yo soy in Mazatlan

What can I say I´m sitting in an internet cafe facing the Zocalo and I´m nearly there!



Doing It!

I am 6 days into my trip and about 600 miles north of Guadalajara in Los Mochiis, Sinoloa, Mexico. So far I have driven 2300. miles. I could be going faster but, I am alone and I have no one to please but myself. I am getting some great insights doing this.



Vamanos

I been to Mexico 5 times, but never any where except the West Coast beach cities. I’ve read that Guadalajara is the most Mexican city in Mexico. I want to drive down the coast and come back through the heartland of Mexico
