Our name was birthed from the desire to have excitement. To share in an experience that was many times more than we could hope for. As we brainstormed about traveling coast to coast we began to realize we would be sharing one amazing adventure after another. That two families would be experiencing all that both countries had to offer for an entire year. That we would be visiting the ocean bordering both sides of our continent. From sea to sea. That's when the thought came. What if we had a name that shared our excitement, our longing for adventure and our goal of traveling from country to country or sea to sea. The idea began to take shape, morphing from a "sea" to a "C" and realizing the explosive connection of having four "C"s together. Thus C4 Adventures was born.
Of course we realized that we were thinking coast to coast, country to country, sea to sea and that we'd also be visiting the Arctic Ocean as well, adding yet another C, but we just couldn't get our heads around the mathematical equation that would be 7 C's (Arrr, that sounds like a piratey reference). Seven of them? We thought, "How would that fit in with a catchy name?", so we went with just the four.
We did realize that a name like C4 could be a bit explosive, but we thought hey, if we're going to get our name out there, we might as well do it with a bang!
As for the motorhome and a truck pulling a fifth wheel going over the edge, we tried to incorporate our two rigs into the logo and were thinking about how we took a wrong turn and got the motorhome stuck in the mud on our Geocaching adventure, but we couldn't think of how to show that easily in a logo so we thought, what if the truck was pulling the trailer right off the edge. It seemed to work so we went with it.
