“It was very scary.
I was sitting in the cockpit, and I was going from one end of the ship to the other, and the cabin was so cold.
But I loved it.
It was just so much fun.”
The journey home is an exciting part of a new memoir called “A Real Rollercoaster Ride,” written by Journeys Timberland boots founder Chris Woods, who left his job as a banker to become a full-time sailor.
The book, which is about his years aboard a small ship, is due out on Wednesday.
It is about Woods’ love of adventure, his travels to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest and his marriage to a woman who helped him get through his journey.
He is a self-proclaimed “sailor,” but said his role was “the captain’s job.”
Woods, 52, is a former U.S. Marine Corps infantry officer who spent four years aboard the small ship he and his fiancée, Sarah Ann Wood, founded in 2003.
The boat has become a passion project for Woods and his wife, Sarah.
He began exploring it in 2007 when he and Sarah decided to spend the winter on a ship they had sailed before.
They were inspired by the adventure of a sailor in the ocean and decided to make a boat that could be sailed by foot or by boat.
It also provided an opportunity to explore a different kind of adventure.
“It was like a rollercoast for me,” Woods said.
“We were going from the East Coast to the South.
And it was amazing.”
Woods has written about his time on the boat before, including a 2010 book, “The Adventure of the Lost Boy.”
He and Sarah were married in 2010.
In the book, Woods recounts his first sailboat adventure, which he said he would never forget.
“I was on the river and the sea,” he wrote.
“I saw a boat floating by and I thought, ‘Man, that’s going to be my dream.’
And then we got off the boat and we were all in the water and I looked up and I saw a man and he was on a paddle board with his dog and he said, ‘What the hell is that?’
In a new book that Woods has penned, he writes about the experiences of his time aboard the vessel, and how it helped him become a better person.””
He also wrote a memoir, “Sailors: The Adventures of a Petty Officer,” published in 2015.
In a new book that Woods has penned, he writes about the experiences of his time aboard the vessel, and how it helped him become a better person.”
My relationship with the boat has grown and evolved over the years,” he said.
“It seemed like a great opportunity for me to learn about the human condition. “
The captain, [the port manager], said, ‘(We’ve got to go on this cruise) because you’re in a bad shape,’ ” Woods recalled.
“It seemed like a great opportunity for me to learn about the human condition.
And then he started to make fun of me.”
Wood, a former Navy SEAL, said his experiences on the vessel helped him grow into a more compassionate person.
He has also shared his experiences of growing up in rural Alaska.
“You had no television.
There was no internet,” he recalled.”
And I had a boat and I had to be on the water every day.
I had no time to walk around the house or to do any other activities.”
He said his family had to spend most of their time on boats, even while he was in school.
“So I was constantly on the lookout for the opportunities to go out and do something with my family,” Woods wrote.
“We never spent more than two hours together on any given day.
It didn’t feel like we had time to get to know each other.”
He also said that while he had the privilege of meeting his wife Sarah, the journey aboard a boat helped him realize the importance of his relationship with his family.
“The thing that I learned from the journey was that we have this bond with each other and we share so much of our lives together,” Woods continued.
“Our families were so important to me growing up because of the boat.
We were connected.
We shared our lives, and that’s the bond we have with each another.
We have that bond with our families and with our community.”
Wood’s book is set to be published on June 28.
