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 found a nice template to use wordpress, it’s not the best to upload the pictures but it looks really like I want.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination
It won't be this summer

Ok I’ll leave Switzerland and do a road trip hitchhiking but I know where I want to go as I want to see friends.
I won’t worry about I’ll sleep but there’s a destination.
I need to have more vacation so I can have more time and do a trip like this without destination.
Next month: Switzerland, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France and back… more or less if I don’t get stuck somewhere :)

Get a tattoo
Canadian tattoo

A friend received a visit of a tattooer from Canada and asked around if someone wanted a tattoo.
As I wanted one since a moment, I contacted her and I got tattooed by Joe. It was the good opportunity as the tattoo I wanted was an Inukshuk and the Inukshuk is a symbol made in Canada.

So I have now my 1st tattoo made by Joe Quin:

Camp in the snow in a tent (read all 2 entries…)
I did it while doing a jaccuzzi on a frozen lake

This is the summary of this jaccuzzi:

With a good mattress, thermal underwear and a good sleeping bag it was fine to sleep in my tent even with -10°C.
The Sunday afternoon was perfect, the sun was shining and heating my tent so I could rest wearing only my swimming suit, a good way to recover from this long night drinking and eating in the jaccuzzi.
