About the Author
Gilbert Penney is a retired teacher who lives in Springdale, Newfoundland. He is married to the
former Gleason Rice of Port Anson and the father of three boys: Glenn, Geoff, and Greg. During the
past ten years he and his hiking companion Harvey Rice have become avid backpackers. Gilberts
and Harveys latest venture was their very successful and well-publicized Trek for Health, a
fund-raising endeavour for the South and Central Health Foundation. Not yet satisfied by the thrill of
meeting the challenge of long distance hiking, they are planning at least one more trek for the
summer of 2000, a trek that they hope will, for the first time, include Labrador.
