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.

design and build a bike trailer

idkbrblol(not) a bike trailer

saw a bike uptown, and on the back it had a “sloppy setup” of crosshatched wood. (I didn’t take a closer look at it.) But it did give me an idea of a crosshatching of wood slats that can slide out each side & out the back for extra shelf-space. I also considered a set-up of wood slats that can fan-out.

idkbrblolfinally a workable set of wheels ... (or a different set)

Figures that just the time I find a good-great set of wheels {attached to a foldable chassis!}, I find another (bigger, stronger set)!
So do I want the foldability already built-in, or do I want the bigger stronger wheels??

Decisions… decisions…

(This is how it goes with girlfriends. {Don’t even go there.}
I mean they show up in “pairs.”)

idkbrblolbike trailer / carriage ?

I’m wondering about the possibility of … well they do make child carriages to tow behind bikes!
This could go somewhere further.

idkbrblolflywheel for a bike; or maybe a bike trailer 2 years ago

idkbrblolcolossal, stupendously prodigious, monumental idea!

(I know I take the risk of using “colossal” & getting laughed-at again like I did in H.S. when I saw a knight’s move that would result in a family fork; semi-immediately forcing another family fork!! Alas, it was not even my game.)

Anyway, it was another good idea while taking a walk! :-)
(It was really really good, but “colossal stupendously prodigious monumental” may be pushing it just a little.)
And it should help with my other’n. 3 years ago

idkbrblol"Bobby where did you get those nails?"

(“Bobby where did you get those nails?” – the ultimate recycling motto.)
I can use these slats I’ve got the computer system settin on! (I’m not really enjoyin it like this anyway.)
These will work much better for a bike trailer anyhow.
