When most of my friends and family hear that I've gone botanizing for the day, they probably have images of me strolling lazily along a trail through a dry area devoid of poison ivy, plants with thorns and prickles, mosquitoes, yellow jackets, and venomous snakes on a comfortable spring day. Ninety-nine percent of the time, that couldn't be farther from the truth. My travels take me to the edges of the Earth, almost literally in some cases.
