"There isn’t anything original about a skier on a road trip out West. Even living out of your vehicle is no longer rare or different. And yet Jack Van Wie’s decision to load his 1982 Saab 900 with his telemark skis, eight pairs of socks, a fire extinguisher, and his books, and spend the winter touring his way from New York to Washington feels unique—like a throwback to a time when we didn’t make our decisions based on current trends.
Sierra: You know they make vans for trips like this, right? What’s with the tiny Saab?
Jack: First of all, it’s not tiny. Before I decided to live in it, every time I stopped for gas or a sandwich, someone would come over and say, ‘I had that car,’ and give me their story of how they used the car as a pickup truck or something. When I fold down my seats, three people can sleep comfortably in the back. It looks small, but it’s not. It’s front-wheel drive and it’s an amazing car in the snow. I never even put on my chains."
