My final formal meeting today was with my dear friend and colleague Gunnar Breivik. I have known Gunnar since around 1999. I think we met first at the IAPS conference in Bedford, but it might have been when I visited the Norwegian University of Sport Science earlier that year. At the time, I think he was Rector o the University, or maybe it was a little later. Anyway, we have seen each other in Brisbane, Melbourne, Salzburg, Oslo, and numerous other places. Gunnar was also on my PhD examination committee many moons ago. Gunnar has spent the last year at University of California, Berkeley chilling out after a long stint as Rector. I seem to recall going to Oslo in 1999 and hearing about his antics of taking a kayak off the high diving board in the swimming pool; one of many extreme sport stories he has to tell.
