Lead Adventure Guide

Wells is your quintessential hippy adventure guide. A Minnetonka native, he is an expert at guiding our adventures!

More About Wells

Hellooo Campers, Wells Brose here. Yes that's my real name... thanks Mom and Dad!

I was born and raised in the sweet waters of Lake Minnetonka. With a vast 24 years of exploring the United states and the Far East. My spark of adventure started at a young age. My parents took me to these beautiful beaches of Florida, and since then, I have never been able to stop exploring. Even if it's my own back yard. I love long walks on the beach and sunsets.

I am very passionate about learning new things (especially history), people and being part of other peoples experiences, and adventuring out in the world. I can be easily wowed with food or facts. My favorite cheap beer is HAMM'S (if you don't know about Hamms I'll bless you with some knowledge). My favorite craft beer is Ballast Point Sculpin and my favorite food is a toss up between Popcorn and Pizza (obviously fresh is best). My cons are rude people, cottage cheese and not the biggest fan of olives, but they're growing on me!

The attention to detail I have to make sure everyone has a good time is what separates me from the pack. Uff Daa Adventures is a great way to explore your own backyard or someone else', or maybe mine.

Wells Brose, your humorous, care free, & forthright type of travel guide.
