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.

geogalchanging this goal back to hike once a month

I tend to hike less in the winter, so I’ll change that goal again in the Spring. I went on a nice hike in Audubon park over Christmas break. I saw 5 deer. I need to plan a January hike. Maybe this weekend? 8 years ago

geogalchanging this goal

changing this goal from “hike at least once a month” to “hike at least twice a month”

I’m happiest when I’m outside, so for my goal to be “hike at least once a month” is simply not acceptable. Twice ain’t that great either, but I have to drive an hour and a half at the least to hike with my dog. 8 years ago

geogalHoosier National Forest

I camped and hiked in HNF last weekend. Heading to North Carolina on Thursday for a paddling class. Hope to get some hiking in before and after the paddling.

Barely got in my September hike. I went to Natural Bridge State Park on Friday. It was beautiful. Hopefully I will be able to far surpass one hike in October. I hope to do many. 8 years ago


Went hiking in the Gorge on Wednesday. It was a beautiful day. Going to try to go this weekend as well. 9 years ago

Which isn’t too bad considering how freaking hot it is here this time of year.
Twice in J.J. Audubon State Park, once in the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area (Monongahela National Forest), and once in the Red River Gorge (Daniel Boone National Forest). 9 years ago

linglingHiking, the ultimate and fun exercise

I hike almost whenever it is possible. And I encourage you do too. Find a mountain, a park, or a river and pack a bottle of water, you will enjoy this nice time away from the hetic city life, away from your annoying friends (if you have any), and away from everything. 9 years ago

Phil WilsonNeed to get the family involved

Now that my daughter is not involved in gymnastics anymore, we should have more time available to do things on the weekend. She will be doing competitive dance, but we should have at least one afternoon available.

There is a great trail system, the Trans-Canada Trail and many excellent Provincial parks to hike in around here9 years ago


I’ve been once a month since November – one more trip before hiking season is over for a while (anything beyong May in Louisiana is too hot to be enjoyable). The group I’m going with is going to pick things back up in October. 9 years ago


I live in Wyoming, there are so many places to explore. I see new and amazing things everytime leave i step out of my truck and into the wild. Plus my Black Lab, Bella, loves to get out of the house! 9 years ago

Emily Ca.the great outdoors.

a person can’t just walk down the street to go somewhere in Silicon Valley—the smog will kill your lungs. Besides, it’s the suburbs, where the fuck do you walk to? School? I’m 23. No more school. So, I better run to the hills and wear a sturdy pair of shoes. 9 years ago
