Here's what others have had to say
about Outdoor Adventure Expo:
  • "We try to make every Expo!
    We come for the whole weekend.
    — Marilyn Koch, Ames, Iowa —
  • "A jewel in the Midwest! 
    I've been coming since 1978.
    — Steve Ehlscheid —
  • "Getting first timers like me here is good. 
    Best kept secret in town.
    — Anonymous —
  • "It's a bad season if I miss an Expo! 
    I've been coming twice a year for 10 years.
    — Barry Knapp, Rochester, MN —
  • "Midwest Mountaineering is the best, better than all the stores in Seattle.  In fact, it is the best outdoor store I've ever been in, and I've been in plenty.  I come all the way from Seattle to the Outdoor Adventure Expo."
    — Pete Daniels, Seattle, WA —
  • "No business in the Twin Cities, or anyplace I have been is so devoted to the personal growth and outdoor skill development of those who cross your path.  And it is due to your leadership and tremendous teams you have assembled over the years."
    — Richard McGovern, Duluth, MN —
  • "Thank you Midwest Mountaineering for the Expos hosted at your location twice each year, and specifically for the recommendation made by Rod & Sharon Johnson about hiring KB Tambo for their 8 day trek in Peru.  We just returned and have similarly favorable reports.  I am not sure we would have chosen to do this trip without attending Rod & Sharon's presentation."
    — Mark & Becky Benson, Lino Lakes, MN —
