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’ve driven in 49 states. I travelled Alaska on the inland ferry and did not need a car in the small cities we visited. I could walk the entire town and be back to the dock before the ferry departed.

I collect cloth patches for my jackets, caps and so forth. I have over 700 from them national parks and other tourist attractions.

I hiked over 100 mountain peaks in southern Arizons.

I hiked the Grand Canyon in 2 days, one day down, stayed in the Phantom Ranch dorm and up the easier South Rim the next day.

I rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon with a PBS camera crew for 10 days.

I won medals in nearly 100 events in the Tucson, AZ Senior Olympics.

I have a 4.0 masters degree in business administration and parts of masters degrees in education, political science and education.

I retired at age 51.

I have a 75 foot long garden, and am giving away scallopped patty pan squash almost every day.
