Happy birthday to the founder of Rulien + Associates, Don Rulien!
July 11, 2019
In honor of Don’s birthday, we’d like to share his reflections on his family life in Alaska and some of his favorite pastimes.
"Alaska offered a wide array of hobbies and adventures for my wife and I, and our family. We owned a sailboat and sailed Resurrection Bay for years with our oldest daughter, but we had to turn the sailboat in when our twins arrived. After that, we built a cabin in the Meadow Lakes area, and it was a great place to raise young kids. We had boating, fishing, inner-tubing and water skiing in the summer, and snow machining in the winter. One of our favorite snow machine rides was on the Deska River to watch the Iditarod. . . and see all of the great dog sledders go by.
Alaska provided us a wonderful life full of opportunities, and fond family memories. Our children are grown, and have lives of their own now. But my wife and I continue to enjoy outdoor hobbies - we love kayaking and treasure our visits with the grandkids."
