What - hanging at one of California’s most iconic and fun beaches in a VW bus, baby, what else?

Why - why not? No, that’s too easy. 

Why - because life is meant to be lived…or some such word art sentiment borrowed from my Aunt Josephine’s powder room

Q: I want to drive.

A: I hear you. Marie is fun and quirky. Her quirky really comes out on the road. It can be embarrassing. In the back window of my first car, a 1970s era Mercedes 240D (diesel), I had a sign in the back window that read, “0 to 60 in 15 minutes”. I could use one again. For now, it’s just me driving.

 

Q: I want you to drive me somewhere.

A: You must enjoy climbing hills while switching between 2nd and 3rd gear. This we can do. Note that one person can sit up front and all other(s) will be in the back. It’s not conducive to sparkling conversation, nor is it climate controlled, but it is a lot of fun and frankly, isn’t that the goal? Oops, now I’m the one asking the questions. This service is not currently offered to book online so text 949 940 hyphen 6832 and we’ll figure it out.

 

Q: I want a different color bus.

A: Ahhhhhh, you should have warned me so I could cover Marie’s ears, but she can’t read so I’ll let it pass. The plan is to add several more busses to the fleet and alas statistics show a high probability one will not be orange. As they say, check this space for updates. 

 

Q: I want more bikes.

A: So does Marie. This we can and will do in the near future. Currently you can rent 2 bikes for 2 hours. Text 949 940 hyphen 6832 to be notified when we add more.

 

Q: I want the bikes somewhere else.

A: My goodness you have a lot of questions, but good on you for asking. I have been told there’s no such thing as a stupid question. I don’t know if that’s true as a philosophical mind I do not possess, however feel free to direct any candy or ice cream oriented questions my way. Currently we deliver to Doheny State Beach but we’re open to other places that call your name. Text as directed above.

 

Q: I want the bus somewhere else.

A: This is a little bigger ask, but hey, I’m game. Make a proposition and we’ll see.

 

Q: I want a longer hang.

A: This can be done too. Reach out.

 

Q: I have a funky idea.

A: DUDE! YES! This is what Sweet Orange Adventures is all about. This whole company is a funky idea. Bring on the funk.

 

If you have any questions not answered in the exhaustive list above, you know what to do. You know how we don’t say “leave a message after the tone and I’ll get back to you at my earliest convenience” anymore because it’s implied and because we don’t want to actually talk to people on the phone. In that spirit I’m not going to tell you to text 949 940 hyphen 6832 with any other questions. I’m absolutely not going to tell you that so don’t even ask, particularly by texting 949 940 hyphen 6832 because that would be totally over the top and while we’re funky, we’re still eminently reasonable.  

 

Keep it Sweet!
