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.

TGHeading out again

In the morning I’m heading out on vacation in Utah with my friends Dan & Tom, who I’ve enjoyed many trips with (including several to Utah). This is my first vacation in 6 months so even though I’m apprehensive about how my leg will do, I’ve really been looking forward to it.

Considering how little I’ve been on here lately you guys probably won’t miss me much ;) but I’ll still be thinking of you & will send cards to those who I usually send postcards to.

See you all in a week and a half :)7 months ago

luckymeghanRoad Trip 2014!

During the first week in June, the 5 of us are driving from Orlando in the van… heading to Atlanta, then Indiana, ending up in Colorado. Tax refund funding most. Jar change & savings from sales commissions funding fuel. Plan A includes visiting Georgia Aquarium – I’m excited. Hoping hours on the road won’t drive us crazy :) 8 months ago

Late July..I think :) 8 months ago

MikeSo technically I've already done this :D

Last weekend I went to St. George Utah—my old home town. Stayed a couple of days in Springdale, just outside of Zion National Park… Even though I never actually got into the park. :) Spent all my time with a friend from high school. Sunday night we went to Las Vegas—turns out she’d never seen the Shark Tank @ the Monty Carlo or the fountain in front of the Bellagio. Turned out to be a pretty fun weekend. :D 10 months ago

We were supposed to go to san antonio, texas and wichita, kansas to visit our sisters, but it was too much $$ at the moment. We did however reserve for vacation with friends at Vieques, Puerto Rico for thanksgiving weekend. 13 months ago

TGI'm on vacation! :)

17 days until I have to be back at work-


I still have barely started packing, but I’ll be leaving sometime tomorrow. I’ll try to check in here quickly before I leave, but I don’t know how much access I’ll have while I’m gone. I hope to see a few of you in the next two weeks, and I’ll talk to the rest of you when I return! 13 months ago


in my last doctor’s appointment he didn’t say anything that would cause me to cancel my trip, so I guess it’s on!

My vague plans for a SE US road trip are starting to crystalize a bit. Attached is a map with a rough estimate of my route. Other than meeting at least one 43er in Atlanta, and trying to reach the highpoints of several states for this goal, I’m not sure exactly what I’ll be doing. I still can’t do any hiking, unfortunately. I can ride my bike but the only reason I’ve been able to do that here is that I know that I can get a hold of someone if I have a major breakdown, like pretzeling a wheel. That wouldn’t be the case 1500 miles from home so I’d better not do that :P Kayaking I could do and I’d love to do some, but even my inflatable kayak is pretty heavy when it’s wet and I don’t think that I can handle it by myself with a broken leg.

So, I guess I’ll take some books to read and try to so some birding and just enjoy the driving through a part of the country that I’ve never seen before :)

My plan is to leave on Saturday. 4000 miles of driving- good thing that gas prices are down right now! 13 months ago

TGBack again,

for a little while, at least!

Actually I got back Saturday night, but I haven’t been around here much since then.

I had a pretty good trip. I saw all of my siblings, nieces, and nephew. I hung out with my sister all week and saw everyone else at least once. I went to I think 5 microbreweries I had never been to before and drank some great new beer. The weather wasn’t very good but the fall colors were gorgeous. I went to a meat market that’s been in the same family for 100 years, spent some time with my caving buddy, and visited my mom’s memorial for the first time.

Now I’m home for three weeks before having my last vacation of the year. I’ll actually have two weeks in a row off for the first time since I went to Switzerland over 10 years ago. I’ve been considering taking a road trip to the southeastern U.S. There are several pros and cons, and I think I’ll wait until Friday (my next doctor’s appointment) before I decide for sure. 13 months ago

molliemoonlightHaving not had a proper holiday this summer, it was well needed

And now preparations are afoot for the potential next one, which could prove very exciting, if it all works out… 2014, California here I come. (hopefully!) 13 months ago

TGI'm on vacation! :)

I’ll be flying out to Chicago early tomorrow morning to spend a week visiting my siblings in Indiana. This is going to be kind of a weird trip. I haven’t been out there in three years, since Mom died. In the 29 years I’ve been in Colorado this will be the first time I’ll be going back “home” without seeing her :P

At least my sister’s off for the entire week, so we’ll probably be keeping fairly busy. And on Tuesday I’ll be meeting a 43er friend IRL for the first time!

I probably won’t be on here a lot over the next week, but I’ll have Internet access most of the time so I’ll check in once in a while. See you all in a week! 14 months ago

My sister is off for the week, so even though I can’t hike we should be able to do some things. And maybe I’ll finally get to meet up with a 43er or two that I haven’t had the chance to meet before :)15 months ago
