ChrisWhite 1 Resized

by Donovan Wheeler photos by Caitlin Fogle Like a lot of winding back routes in western Indiana, Baker’s Camp Road cuts through thick copses of sycamore, oak, and poplar.  Wide enough for two passing vehicles, it’s a road best traveled alone.  Sit in the middle.  Straddle the crown of the ...

A Plug for the Local Car Show

Featured Image

I’m 23 years old, and I drive a 1974 Volkswagen Beetle. I suspect that this wouldn’t strike many as being all that odd on its face. Some of you probably had a Volkswagen as your first car. Maybe it was a little older; maybe it was, in fact, a ’74. ...

Film Review: Hostiles

Pershing Hostiles a

If you’ve ever wanted to see the film equivalent of buying a sports car just to drive it off a cliff, look no further than Hostiles. Written and directed by Scott Cooper, Hostiles is a narratively lacking yet visually breathtaking entry into the Western genre. It’s an experience that will ...

Roamin’ Holiday: Cycles of Society

Featured Image

Growing up, travel was something I thought was reserved for other people. It seemed I always had friends that took great trips around the U.S. and abroad, but my family could never afford it. Returning from spring break I would hear grand tales of scuba diving, hiking, Disney World or ...
