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 ride the wave 🏄 of increasing entropy of the universe 😎🐶.
Excellent Adventure 2023 – One Month Out
The Big Kahuna ~ Left-Coast Tour is underway! We have been out for a month now, visiting spots in California and Nevada. We met up with our friends Dan and Maggie in Las Vegas and did some great overlanding. Now we are heading north toward Washington before starting our trip back through the great basin and the Southwest. We’ve had great weather and seen some stunning sights! An Excellent Adventure, indeed 😎🐶!
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
