The Capable > Stories

50 States. 87 Clues. Endless adventure. The race is on.

Quest brings adventure to your doorstep. Get outside, discover epic locations and local history, and accept the challenge.

Race to be one of the first to complete nearby Quests.  Each Quest begins with a clue, and leads to a point of interest. The first 4 participants to solve the clue, travel to the point of interest, and complete the Quest will win the annual Quest Patch.

After a Quest has been completed by 4 participants, it is marked complete and no additional patches will be awarded for that Quest.  Other participants can still attempt the Quest, however they will not earn a Quest Patch for it. Experience and knowledge gained from past Quests may be helpful for future Quests.

New perspective.

A Quest could take participants anywhere -- a mountain top, cave, waterfall, abandoned structure, or historical landmark.  They are all, however, obscure. Off the beaten path. Not found in a tourist guide book. Some only known to locals. Most Quest participants didn’t even know the location their Quest took them existed.  Even after living in the area their entire lives.

Living a life of adventure.

30 days into Quest 2019, over 400 participants in almost all 50 states have completed over 70% of the initial batch of Quests. Our community wasted no time in accepting the challenge, many of them tackling their Quests with friends and family -- truly marking the adventure as a special time spent outdoors exploring the United States' vast lands.

Life changing.

What we could not have predicted was the overwhelmingly positive ramifications Quest would have on our community in such a short period of time. Stories of uplifting inspiration poured in, reminding us that our mission statement of ‘inspiring our community to live more adventurous lives through legendary products and experiences’ is a noble and rewarding pursuit.

My wife got the whole family hyped up to make the quest a little day trip family adventure. she knew the whole time that the prize was a silly patch for a silly contest for a silly company... but the real prize was being able to go on a bit of an adventure from the day to day exhaustions of daily life and to go out and do something and explore and get the kids onterested in being outdoors!

Making some good memories was the real prize...

Making some good memories was the real prize...

This may be cliche, but thanks TAD for giving my family and I, as well as others, a goal and some adventure. Hopefully this will have been just the catalyst we needed to live more actively, healthfully, and more adventurous lives worth living that we can be even more proud to look back upon."

"I HAD A HEART ATTACK...

"I HAD A HEART ATTACK...

At age 38 about a year and a half ago. In the last 18 months I’ve had 5 trips to the cath lab with multiple cardiac stent insertions. It’s been a crazy unexpected life changing event. The reason I mention it? Reminding myself to exercise and get out is tough, especially with a career, a wife, and three kids. The TAD Quest challenge gave me a great excuse to get out today, so I am extremely grateful!! Get out there and complete your Quest!”- RC
