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.

shave my head

When I was 14 I had to try it and I would recommend it to anyone. It was very liberating and so cool to lay down on my pillow at night. I have lost my only picture, but I’m hoping to find it soon.

After shaving my head bald, we went to the Aerosmith concert in Salt Lake City and afterward met Steven Tyler at the Hilton where he asked me if it was real, if he could touch it, and then vigorously rubbed his leather gloved hands all over my head before heading up the elevator.

Anyway, I have also grown my hair half way down my back and enjoyed that as well. However, it was more work to take care of—my boss used to make me tuck my hair under my hat at work, I couldn’t ever keep my hair straight, keeping it clean was a mess, and so much more. I really feel for the ladies.

Get a Four-Wheeler
We finally did it

Getting quads has been a discussion in our house for 10 years now, and as the kids continue to get older it’s about time. Now we spend most of our family time on the quads, riding in the mountains, looking for open fields, and considering buying a camping lot. I’ve added a new category called Utah ATV Trails to show off some photos and talk about the riding trails in Utah.
