“College freshman Walter (Gib) Gibson decides to go cross country to visit his friend in California during winter break. Awaiting there is a bikini-clad babe whom his friend assures him is a “sure thing”. Meanwhile, Allison, a cute (but somewhat anal retentive) girl at Gib’s college has also decided to head out to Cal. to see her boyfriend during break. Gib and Allison are thrust together on a road trip from hell, and somewhere along the way, they find each other’s company to be tolerable. Now, what will become of Gib’s “sure thing?””
Dave Schubert shares with us the story behind his photograph Highway 101
This long exposure photograph was taken in 2010 while sitting in the passenger seat of my friends car as he drove up Highway 101 into the mountains of Northern California. He pointed to the trees in the distance and mentioned that once we reached the woods we would be in them for the rest of our trip. I don’t remember the length of the exposure—it could’ve been five or 10 minutes, something like that—I just pushed my camera against the glass of the windshield held the shutter open until we hit the trees.
Dave has a new show Scattered Scraps of Memory opening tonight (7/18) at MUDDGUTTS gallery in Brooklyn

But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your way down the road to the Dogfish brewpub for some suds, or head in the opposite direction to the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for some Bocce, and brews to bring back to the inn. Thoughtfully designed by Studio Tack in Brooklyn, the Dogfish Inn is a 16 room escape on the quiet coast of Delaware, home to some of the cleanest beaches in America. Rates start at $250 / night
