Myself, I just have a problem with folks not taking things into consideration. I see tons of folks where I spend my winters that haven't a clue of the danger they put themselves in (and myself if I'm below them), but they get lucky when they set off a 100 yard slide & they come back next week still without avy gear. I get sick of folks not taking responsibility for their situation. I know it sounds like I have no compassion, I really do, this stuff just really gets under my skin, we could all be the next one to have a horrible incident, but did we think it through first? was it a CALCULATED risk? I think that more & more folks today hop into risky things without giving the activity the respect that it deserves. I risk my life on a regular basis, but I know exactly what I'm in for if things go wrong & I deal with those consequences.
That said, I really do feel bad for the family & the hard time they're going through.
