I WAS (T)HERE in Kyogle in 2002.
Half a lifetime ago.
16 years old out on the town with the boys.
Talk of a paddock basher.
$200 for an unregistered car.
With friends from Lismore visiting, and after last weekend’s experience, I felt to sit this one out.
The following morning in Video Ezy – the news broke of a car crash out back road.
3 friends dead in the early hours of Saturday morning. Total shock and disbelief.
2 nights back we’d just been playing World Rally Championship on the Xbox together.
In real life you don’t get to press the reset button.
