Examples of Stroud in a Sentence

  1. Les Stroud:

    If I ’m being very honest, it did take on a much deeper connotation for me, for me it has been 15 years of ‘ Survivorman ’ and so to have Logan with me after what we had just been through, barely 18 months ago, it creates something so impactful, something more meaningful to me. Stroud was happy to share his passions with his son, but at times, the experience was stressful. I ’m out here doing what I ’m really good at, but I have my son with me, which creates a whole other level of stress, and on top of it I am then rewarded with the fact that this is my son in full survival mode in all definitions of that phrase. And so it became a very meaningful experience to be out there with him.
