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.

live outdoors on island

I found a lake in the woods in the middle of the town where I live. Nobody knows that it’s there and there’s a little island in the middle of it about the size of a fairly large house. I don’t have a lot of money at the moment and I’ve got to self-sustain, so I think I’m going to pull an extended camping trip, set it all up, and live on it for about a month or so. Rent is $0 a month so I can save a bunch of money in the process, then get that boat and get the fuck out of dodge. Yummy.

Live on a sailboat

I’ve never been into sailing really, but it occurred to me recently that living on a boat would be a great idea for someone that likes to travel as much as I do and doesn’t have a lot of money (also like me…). Sailboats are cheap I hear- maybe six grand for a 30something footer. Or less. That’s much better that paying rent every month. Plus, the fuel that makes it go is free. You can go/live anywhere you want. That suits me just fine.

If anyone has a boat I could make payments on please let me know. I’m about to start my search.

Visit The Navajo Indian Reservation

Yeah, I had sort of a revelation about science, spirituality (I hate that word though…), and the operation of the universe recently. Without going into detail, it’s all about the pursuit of Harmony, just to let you in. This all occurred to me because of some reading I did about the Navajo (Dine) People, But I still have some questions I’d like answered, so I want to get out on the res and meet some Dine, get their perspective on things. The only thing is, I have no idea where I’m going once I get out there. I’ve got no problem with wandering around in the desert for a week or two, but I do wonder what other (white) people’s experiences have been heading out there for vacation or whatever. Hee, hee…

Wish me luck. Leaving after May’s up.
