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.

GQkudzuLooking at a map...

...I realize I’m closer than I thought. From north to south:
Yahoo Falls—I’ve hiked in this area multiple times.
Yamacraw—Been there.
Blue Heron—I’ve done the 6.5-mile loop several times.
Slave Falls—Hiked this for the first time recently.
John Litton Loop—Hiked it 4 times.
Oscar Blevins Loop—Multiple hikes.
Honey Creek Loop—Hiked it twice.

So, to help bring this goal to a close, I’m going to say that hiking Twin Arches Loop (6 miles) and Grand Gap Loop (12.4 miles) will complete this goal. Twin Arches will also allow me to see Charit Creek Lodge for the first time. 23 months ago

GQkudzuA loop

I hiked the John Litton Loop last weekend. I dayhiked the Honey Creek Loop again in June. Looking at a map, I’m pretty comfortable with the major destinations on the northern and southern ends of the park. I need to hit a couple of the longer trails, such as the Grand Gap Loop or the John Muir. 3 years ago

I’m hiking the John Litton Farm Loop next month. 3 years ago
