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.

ProfessorEspressoEmbarking on another escapade...

Tomorrow I hop on the highway again! At least 4 states… I am excited! I am getting everything in place. Thermal coffee mug (that plugs into the lighter jack :P) ~ CHECK! CDs right where I can reach them without any hassle whatsoever ~ CHECK! My great big blocks-out-all-glare-out-there shades on the dash ~ CHECK! Staple road-trip snacks in the glovebox ~ CHECK! It all comes down to java (I am coffee driven, all the way!), good tunes, a pair of primo glasses, & treats for taking the undiscovered streets. :) 6 years ago

ProfessorEspressoMany Stops Along the Way

I have just landed (for a little while) from a fun road-trip: South of the Border, Savannah, Tybee Island, Jacksonville, Melbourne, Delray Beach, & (the final stop) my hometown, Boca Raton. It was wonderful, as was the food, which is half the joy of taking these journeys. :) My route will be entirely different when leaving—different cities with different settings. I haven’t mapped the route yet, but I am sure to post about it when I land again… 7 years ago

ProfessorEspressoMeet Ya at the Station?!

I just got back from a fantabulous roadtrip! I went through northern Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana and then back again. I even stopped to take “the last train to Clarksville”. :> I will be starting another one on Saturday—only home for a week. Then the holidays will be upon us and I will be on another odyssey come late November and then again in December. You know, don’t knock minivans! They are a luxury roadtrip mobile. 8 years ago

ProfessorEspressoFree to Do the 3 R's: Ramble, Roam, & ROAD TRIP

Well, as of yesterday my Mom is officially retired! I am elated for her and she has so many adventures ahead of her, but I am also elated for myself. This means that I will be seeing her so much more often, AND we will be able to take road trips together! Now that I have a minivan (yes, I know, I own a minivan…), it will not only be easier to road trip, but it will be an utter joyride! I don’t have any idea where we will go first, but my Mom is one adventuresome lady, so I know she’ll be up for anything. She’s going to visit me for the ENTIRE month of August, so I am thinking about talking her into our first one during that time. :> 8 years ago

zatoichiiccMy road trip with the Young Democrats

This started with a deal. We help you with something, you help us with something. I did not broker the deal, I was suppose to cash in.

The deal was that I become a Regional Director for what is now the Pacific Region in return for my state supporting a candidate for a more senior Young Democrat position.

I arrived in SeaTac. Met up with people in Olympia and went on a road trip that went to Portland then due east on the Interstate(I-80?). We went to Idaho Falls for a brief meeting after spending the night over in Great Falls, Idaho and then spending the night in Spokane. We stopped at a park where I had a postcard perfect view of Mount Rainier.

The best part was the fun and cameraderie of my two traveling companions and our good humor. 8 years ago

doribut it will ruin you... ;-)
