After his 23 year employment with Amax Coal Company, Johnnie became a geological consultant. As a geologist, Johnnie has worked in many parts of the United States, as well as Australia, Botswana, Canada, Colombia and Mongolia.
As a result of his geological background and one of five founding members of the Central Indiana Wilderness Club, Johnnie’s interest in mountaineering was imminent. Climbing Mt.
