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.

SilvieLovely trip

And the Isles are so calm and peaceful. Such a shame DH went down with a cold , and then passed it on to me just as he was getting better. However a great place to rest and recuperate.

Would love to go again and just walk everywhere (apart from the bits in between the isles obviously) to take it all in. 3 years ago


SilviePlan into action :)

Booked so far

Early start and stop for lunch in Somerset, attending a meeting en route.
First night on Bodmin Moor
Eden project
Second night at Sennen Cove
Flight to St Mary’s from Lands End
2 Nights on St Mary’s
Return flight

Still to book:
One night (last night) somewhere on route home possibly in Devon / Somerset (Exmoor? Any suggestions?)

So this is going to happen :) 3 years ago


SilvieWe have a plan

Just need to book everything now. The plan is to travel down on 2 stages and spend the first night in Devon, and then go and spend a day at the Eden project the next day. Then stay overnight in South Cornwall. Next get a flight to St Marys the following morning. Have 2 nights there than fly back and travel north to Devon(ish) and have another stop over. Then the last leg home the following day. So 5 nights away and 3 days / 2 nights visiting the Isles of Scilly. 3 years ago


SilvieNot sure how it's best to do this

The Scillonian sailings leave early in the morning from the mainland, so we would need to stay overnight in Cornwall en route, if we were to travel by ferry. Thinking about that we might be best to do a 2 centre holiday and maybe pull in the Eden project too.

Alternatively we could fly there by helicopter and get the Scillonian back.

Bearing in mind my previous attempts to holiday in Cornwall, we would still have a stop over on the way.

Whatever it is potentially an expensive trip – I think at least one night on the Isles maybe two and two in Cornwall (breaking our journey going and coming back)

For this trip we will be leaving the pack at home – I don’t think the helicopter would take 3 dogs! 3 years ago

You can catch a helicopter to one of the islands (St Mary’s) from Penzance. I’ve never been in a helicopter before. I really really want to do this. Hope I can afford it this summer. 6 years ago
