Default NWT government sending me to Edmonton for fish

They call it a medavac, but I am definitely going to pick up a nice large box of fish to bring back. All expenses paid with hotel room and ground transfer.
Hopefully the kidney stones will be finished with after this.

"Any luggage sir?"

"No, just the cooler."

"Cooler?"

"Yes, I'm from the frozen north and it keeps my long-johns chilled the way I like 'em when I go south."

Hey thanks everybody, Hopefully I get to leave here tomorrow. The sooner the better.
I have done the cooler return in the luggage trick a few times now. Works great and saves about 80.00 in shipping charges.
Sounds like they are going to go all Star Wars on stones and laser them. so hoping its a small laser LOL

I saw a show on this once. The ultrasound waves blow the stones up into a powder. It looks like a little explosion on the display screen. Still doesn't look like lots of fun though, I drink lots of water in hopes that I don't have to go through this myself. At least if the OP gets some good fish there's a bit of a silver lining!
