Day 13 – Darwin to Tennant Creek

Early rise this morning as we have a great distance to travel down "The Track ".

It also appears to be dole day due to the huge preponderance of Aboriginals gathering outside pubs, bars and banks at each town we go through.

The Stuart Highway is an exceedingly boring stretch of road with the only excitement being the wandering cattle.

Tennant Creek is struggle town extraordinaire. There really is fuck all here. I need a rest anyway after today.

Stats for today;

  • Fuel: 123.9l
  • Fuel Consumption: 12.4l/100
  • Time 7:52
  • Distance 997.6km
  • Average Speed: 126.6km/h
  • Total Distance so far: 10,560.5 km

Tomorrow it is off to Cloncurry in Queensland. Yeehaa, that will be our fifth state in 14 days and our fifth border crossing as well.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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