Whaleoil's travels

Ok so I got up early this morning, bid the boy farewell from his camp in Raglan and drove in the rental car to Ohakune.

Not a bad effort, despite the fog it took me four and a half hours only.

Had a quick lunch at my usual haunt in Ohakune, the Mountain Rocks which incidentally is the only eatery in the place that can actually cook a perfect Blue Steak.

Then I humped my gear down to the bus stop for the expected long wait but was pleasantly surprised to see the Intercity bus trundling down the street early, ahhhhh the benefits of privatisation huh!.

 I am typing this in the tearomms at Te Kuiti. Next stop, I have no idea but the bet is we actually arrive on time in Auckland.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
