This is the home of tubridy.net and my blog. I have owned this domain since the late 1990s. Now I use it to record my experiences with my dog, Jake, as we travel through space and time. And what an excellent adventure it continues to be – life, the universe, and everything 😎.
Excellent Adventure 2023 – The Big Kahuna
Plans are set for the Big Kahuna ~ Left-Coast Tour for 2023. We leave in early May and be out through mid-July. Our trip will take us due west for 2,500 miles before we explore California and the northern Pacific Coast. We will hook up again with our friends Dan & Maggie – this time in Vegas 🎲. Our trip back will take us back east and south for another visit to Utah and New Mexico! 😎🐶
We started traveling in our RV the Excellent Adventure in 2021. Our first trip was that Spring when we traveled 9200 miles over 49 days along the western slope of the Rockies. Our second trip in the Fall of 2022 covered 5200 miles over 35 days touring the Appalachian and Adirondack mountains with visits in Virginia, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, and Tenessee.
The blog of the 2021 trip starts here.
The blog of the 2022 trip begins here.
I started my first website as a hobby using the dreaded Microsoft FrontPage in the late 1990s. I studied web design at Emory in the late 2000s and became proficient in programming and graphic skills. I eventually did it full-time when I contracted for IBM in the 2010s. I retired at the end of 2019 as a User Experience (UX) Designer who spent over 40 years working in high tech.
This is a hobby for me now. I view it as my legacy since I leave no one behind at the end of the day. You can find other stuff I am interested in or places I have traveled on this site. I will continue to add more until I can’t do it anymore.
Cheers, Jake and Eddie
