Emma shot back: "We camped once. We had a generator. We had aircon".

Owner Bob McCosker has spent thousands of dollars on the animals since opening the centre more than eight years ago — and says it has all been worth it. "We've released well over 170 turtles in all but today was our 150th green, so that' s a pretty remarkable milestone," Mr McCosker said. "We've got probably 100 volunteers in the region who are involved and who are dedicated, so it' s a big organisation. "It' s not just us at the other end, on the rehab side, there' s a lot in between to make it happen." A unique triple turtle release at Zilzie beach, on the Capricorn Coast, marked the milestone. "Nature turns on as soon as they can smell

One such uncomfortable unplanned camping trip of Charlie's was from hometown Alice Springs to Darwin in the 1960s, because he missed his family.

A robbery forced him to hitchhike for three days with two friends and only Charlie's remaining 18 shillings to their name.

"We were frightfully hungry and thirsty," he said.

But 500 kilometres north they bumped into his brother Reg, who was about to drive to Darwin.

Reg shot a turkey from the wheel.

"It was the best meal I've ever had," Charlie said.

Cheap crack

King's first experience of racism was walking the pavement with friends as a young boy living in Quorn, South Australia.

"I thought it was just a nursery rhyme: 'If you step on the crack, you marry a black'," he said.

"Mum told me what it meant.

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway sold its Costco stake last quarter. Here are 3 reasons why that's extremely surprising

  Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway sold its Costco stake last quarter. Here are 3 reasons why that's extremely surprising Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway sold its Costco position after investing more than 20 years ago, a filing revealed this week. The billionaire investor's company grew its stake in the big-box retailer from 355,000 shares worth $US32 million in 1999, to 4.3 million shares worth $US1.3 billion in June of this year. The sale is a shock because Buffett famously invests for the long term, two of Berkshire's directors sit on Costco's board, and both Buffett and his business partner, Charlie Munger, have repeatedly praised the retailer.

"I was absolutely horrified I was singing it. It might have been aimed at me."

As a prefect, King was captain of the school football and cricket teams.

"But there were students' houses in Quorn where I wasn't welcome," he said.

"We'd get to the gate and they'd say: 'You've got to wait out here'.

"They didn't want an Aboriginal in their house."

Fake it until you make it

King's passion as a 16-year-old was pretending to play the drums. And his big break was bizarre.

King was watching a car crossing Alice Springs' flooded Todd River, coaxed by the reluctant driver's friends opposite.

"He got three-quarters across and he was washed off the causeway. Drums flew out of the car," he said.

"He was so angry and said to his friends: 'I'll never play drums with you again. I've lost my drums and my car'."

This band was The Statics and King had been to all their gigs and emulated the drummer from the crowd.

They recognised him, and invited him to play a real kit for the first time — that night at a gig in the YMCA.

"I played the start of The Shadows' Apache and the crowd was screaming and yelling," he said.

"Playing in front of an appreciative crowd is a fascinating thing and a wonderful feeling."

A career in twisted timber

The Statics became The Scene, most famous for Cold Chisel's Ian Moss.

King's parents moved to Darwin but did not want to interrupt his music career or mechanics apprenticeship.

"As soon as they left, I stopped going to work and concentrated on playing drums," he said.

But they were missed and young Charlie embarked on the horrific hitchhike to start the next stage of his life.

The young builder wisely .

After helping rebuild, he was compelled to study for a career in social work and community development after loading timber for a shonky delivery driver heading to remote Maningrida.

"He said, 'It doesn't matter, just throw the twisted ones in there. It's only for the mob out bush. If they're no good they'll burn them and come back and buy more'," King said.

"I thought about how Aboriginal people were being ignored, and mistreated, and given twisted timber, and things that weren't up to scratch."

The great pretender

But social work in a small town was troubling.

"I just didn't want to keep seeing people whose lives I was investigating," he said.

A release was pretending to call the weekly NT Football League games with his friends from the stalls, much to the entertainment of those in earshot.

"One day I got phoned by people making a tuberculosis ad and they said: 'We like the sound of your voice'," he said.

"While I was doing that, a sports broadcaster came and saw me."
