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.

I have purchased only a few things like my GPSr, E.C.T TOPO maps, a pack, and tent. Still have a lot to get, but I am planning on leaving starting at South Head, at the St. John’s harbour, in less than a few days, probably the weekend.

I did hear that it was supposed to rain all weekend though, so that may delay me a little longer into next week, which is all fine, but I am getting to impatient. I’ll be doing all 18 paths which will take me a very long time to do. So if anyone is around looking to accompany me on the hike, or part of it, drop a email. mikewattersAThotmailDOTcom. 7 years ago

roygbvThe East Coast Trail -mmm deep green day dreams

My Uncle has a book on this very journey and I spent some beautiful summer days learning all about where to go and what to expect. I would not recommend doing this without some education first. Find out about the current state of trails, which legs of the journey you want to challenge and which are best left to the more experienced. Plan you trip and your time. 8 years ago
