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.

Let’s see if I can do this one day a week to start.

I’m going to make Saturday my official 100 Mile Diet Day. 6 years ago

snowsqrrrlOK maybe not 100% 100 mile diet but I can try

Basically you only eat stuff within a 100 miles of your house

Pretty much everything at the grocery store is off limits (its all imported from or mass produced from somewhere else). I have a great local organic protien supplier at the farmers market. We’re fairly far north but there’s good veggies most of the year (by Feb/Mar its mostly root veggies though) not much fruit but you can get lots of berries (I still have lots of frozen u-pick raspberries, saskatoons, and strawberries from last year). I can find local yogurt and cheese (just under the 100 mile limit) but I don’t think you can buy milk (its like there’s some dairy distribution conspiracy out there if you ask me).

The challenging part would be staples like bread or flour (even though its all prairie out there for 100 miles I don’t know how you’d find local grain products), other carbs (no rice – I really don’t care for potatos), other protiens (beans, lentils, peanut butter etc.), condiments (salt, pepper, spices), and miscellanious stuff. I did find a local canola oil dude last weekend.

What I would miss the most though is… coffee, tea, salmon, wine, beer, milk and I’m not sure what else. 7 years ago
