Three Weeks in Madagascar (and a Few Succulents)
by Maynard Moe

In 2013 I went to Madagascar with Rob Skillin (founding “father” of BCSS), Kelly Griffin (of Aloe fame), Woody Minnich (annual speaker for our club), and five others. We went into remote places, got lost a couple times, had to rebuild bridges, destroyed two Toyotas, and saw fabulous plants. I’ll give a captivating account of our trip.
