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.

hang glide (read all 2 entries…)
Flying is great.

I’ve gone through official training near Lansing, Michigan. I’ve completed my H2 certification, I purchased a glider, and I am soaring free. Its the greatest thing ever. If you have the means and a desire to fly, I can’t express how great it is.

hang glide (read all 2 entries…)
Hang gliding training.

I started hang gliding lessons in Michigan last year. I’ve taken 12 aero-tow tandom flights at DFSC, I’m a few flights away from a solo flight and then I’ll be hang 2 certified. This sport is incredible, there is no better way to fly. The club won’t open up again till May but I’ve been thinking about it every day this winter. There is nothing else I’ve ever done that has fulfilled my lifelong desire to fly like hang gliding. I’d recomend this to almost anyone adventurous, even if you don’t think you would be all that interested, I bet you would change your mind after the first flight; my wife did.
