I was on a camping trip, went into the woods .. and when I came back the world had changed.
I didn't see it in real time like most people did, Canterbury Hills (the outdoor ed centre where we were) had no television, no internet. Other than some phonecalls home and one to a student's parent in NYC I had no idea of the enormity of what had happened. Our teachers drove up from the school with VHS videos on the morning of 9/12 so I saw the first 24hrs as a collective stream, not piece by piece. It was a very surreal perspective.
