Sharon and Rod Johnson

Rod Johnson is the owner and 1970 founder of Midwest Mountaineering (midwestmtn.com), your locally owned outdoor adventure outfitter.  With his wife, Sharon, Rod has traveled the globe in search of great outdoor adventures which can be shared with you each Outdoor Adventure Expo!

Their programs provide resource sheets giving you the information you will need for planning your own adventure:  how to prepare, where to go, what to bring, how to keep your gear weight down, getting visas and permits, and how to keep the cost down.

They truly love helping others have fun and safe outdoor experiences.  Come catch their enthusiasm!

Canadian Rockies Hiking and Backpacking
Rod and Sharon and Finney at Lake Louise, Alberta

In August of 2018, Rod and Sharon, along with their dog, Finney, drove to the Canadian Rockies to hike one of the world’s most scenic areas.

They will tell you how to have a Canadian Rockies adventure of your own, as well as provide handout that will include information on permits, bears, what to bring, a few of the many spectacular hikes and advantages and disadvantages of going in the various seasons.
