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.

Spend a summer working at a National Park


Entries from everyone

Sooooo worth it! Ended up working at the pizza place up there (Lynx Creek Pizza) one summer when i was in undergrad. One company basically owns everything up there (and at other national parks)—ARA : American Recreation something. So you just need to apply at one place, then they place you at one of their hotels, stores, restaurants, etc. Some peole there basically worked year-round for them, all over the country, and just went to different parks depending on the season.

What I loved about it: working in the evenings – so i had days free for day-trips, had weekends for overnight back country trips,a nd living close to nature: ran into moose on my way to get the mail, a fox while i was crossing a road, and a grizzly on a leisurely walk after dinner—not to mention other wildlife while i was actually on a hike!

Found this website by googling: 9 years ago
