A few weeks before the road trip, I had a few glasses of win from a box and decided to go outside and stare at the FJ. Well, one thing led to another and I found myself sitting inside, pushing buttons. Now I was in no condition to drive, but I was sober enough to turn on and off all my lighting. It was in that moment I had an epiphany.
I realized, the inside of the FJ looks identical to the cockpit of the space shuttle. As soon as I had that thought, I rushed back inside to finish off the box-O-win and continue to brain storm. Then the name hit me, FJC Explore! I pictured it in my head and knew that the name needed to be placed right above my Explore America decal on the front fender.
