Forum Friday: Living That #alltracklife (with a really cute dog)

It’s Friday! We made it through another week, and to the end of the first month of 2020. Congratulations everyone. To celebrate this phenomenal accomplishment, we’ve found a great little thread, with a fun little car, and a cute little dog. Forget #vanlife; start living #alltracklife

By now you should be very much aware of the “vanlife” lifestyle. Regular old joes and janes buy a quirky old Vanagon, quit their “soul-sucking” day job, and go and live in a van down by the river. Or by the ocean. Or, most probably, in a Walmart parking lot. They then take highly edited pictures of their adventures and try to make it as an “Influencer.”

Well, VWvortex member Doth Savek took a different path. Back in October, Doth picked up a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Sportwagen S with a manual transmission. His goal: have a great little light offroader for weekend adventures with maybe a friend or two, but always with his incredibly cute dog Lola. Hey VW; get this dog and the Alltrack in a commercial immediately and sales will skyrocket.

Doth and Lola live in Salt Lake City, Utah, so there are tons of opportunities for off-the-beaten-path adventures. His photos, shot only with his phone, in his thread are quite stunning. You’ll also see some of the modifications he’s made to his wagon to make it a bit more capable when he ventures off paved roads. Side note: a 6′ human can sleep in the back of an Alltrack rather comfortably.

So if you’ve got a bit of cabin fever, enjoy Doth’s thread and start planning your own outdoor adventures. Better yet, pick up an Alltrack and live an #alltracklife. But good luck finding a dog cuter than Lola.
