Guns, bags, beer and burgers. A tale of YYC.

So we have jumped through the first hurdle. We got to the airport and stopped at the KLM ticket station to begin the process. As it was, there was a lady - who we found out was the boss - was looking for two men with weapons. Boy, did she pick the right guys, if you know what I mean!!! We were ready for an adventure, but she just asked us for our papers and said she would do her thing somewhere else and that we should wait over there. Not over here, over there. We did what she wanted because she appeared to have some clout in the KLM lanes.
About ten minutes later she reappeared, told us to follow her and she did her thing. Our guns were tagged with bright orange tags which said they were unloaded guns - they didn't check them, though - and the luggage with ammo was checked as oversize as well. Things just ticked along and before we knew it, we were headed off to the oversize check in. The guns were somewhat of a mild concern for the agent as they didn't come with the mass of paperwork she was used to with Canadian shipments, and all she eventually needed was the girl from KLM to wander over and say "Oh, everything is fine. The guns are good to go." Done.
From there, Sparky indicated the need for a smoke and I indicated the need for tequila-based beverage. He did his thing and then we progessed to our current locale, Montana's. Beverages in hand, burgers on the way, and the adventure has begun!!!!

It is good to see you are not overly burdened by your considerable years as an educator - the phrase is "In like Flynn". But your posting was a slight exaggeration - you were merely in Calgary . Africa is another matter... good luck
