Escaping the 9 to 5

For Daniel Rikken, setting up camp by a river and spending a night under the stars is an ideal escape from the 9-5.

Spending his younger years touring the Victorian High Country with his mum and dad, Daniel’s love for getting out and about with his family has seen him experience some of Australia’s most beautiful locations – from scaling the spectacular Blue Rag Range to trekking through the red sands of the Simpson Desert.

To Daniel, nothing beats experiencing these “absolutely magnificent” places in his 79 Series, and when it comes to his role at ARB, he enjoys sharing his passion for the off road with customers keen to get their 4WDs ready to hit the tracks.

“I love getting out and about with the family and into these [off road] locations; but there’s a part of me that enjoys getting away with the boys as well and taking my 4WD to its limits and using the gear for what it’s designed to do.”
