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.

Circle S:
$200/day for a wrangler to take you out to a campsite.
$150/day per horse. Each horse carries 250lb.
For every two riders, one packhorse.
This could be an expensive adventure for an overnight fiesta, because the wrangler and horses need to be paid for both ways unless we plan on walking out.
$1,000 for two people… gotta find a cheaper way. 5 months ago

SonneWoot!

This counts towards another goal I have completed of meeting new people. I have recently met someone, who has started working with me, who I am pretty sure, already, is Awesome. She is also a bit of an animal nut, more than me, and has two horses I think. She has offered to teach me how to ride, half jokingly I am sure. But of everyone I know here she would be the most fun to go riding with! So I hope we get to do that this summer :) 18 months ago

cats2kids6I did it!

Maybe I am just a little bit more comfortable around horses. I asked to get off and back out, but then my daughter said Number 2 and Number 3 could not ride. So I did it. I asked the guide to tether my horse, but she said she would stay right infront of me, and not to worry. Since I got diagnosed with the cancer when I get really upset, or nervous my head shakes and that happened so much the guide asked if I was okay. At the end she asked if I will do it again, and I told her probably not, this was my one and only. 2 years ago


cats2kids6Only went to the energy healing guy three times. He never mentioned it again.

Going to see if I can do this in Pigeon Forge on our Zorbing trip. Really, if you believe than dreams can come true…really! 2 years ago


LyreSo much fun!

Went out to the place and did three things:

1. Horsemanship – was pretty boring, but I learnt to put on and take off the saddle and bridle, to brush the horse down and to clean its hooves. Best thing about this was the fact that the horse we did this on was Baron, a rescue horse whom I was lucky enough to ride for the rest of the afternoon.

2. Lesson – learned how to sit in the saddle, hold the reins, and steer the horse around. We also touched on the concept of the rising trot, and I gave it a try. It was surprisingly difficult, but trotting without the rising motion was way more uncomfortable.

3. Trail ride – as night fell, we rode together around the property, down to a wide river and through some boggy grass. This was easily the best part of the afternoon. Baron was just a wonderful horse to ride.

My overall impressions? I loved it! There’s something very cool about the fact that there’s an animal willing to bear you on its back and obey your commands. It’s quite a bonding experience. There was some slight disappointment in the fact that the horses weren’t quite the same beasts I grew up around. It’s telling that the horse I first gravitated to was the one that ended up having a list of riders that could handle her. Why did I like her? Because she held her head up and looked at me. It wasn’t so much their smaller size as their lack of spirit that bothered me. In some ways, it was like dealing with toys rather than animals. Or, I suppose, more like vehicles. Which is what they are.

But all of that is a small gripe. Mostly, it was wonderful. I sincerely hope that I will be able to afford proper lessons one day in the future. 2 years ago
