Today I mentioned the word 'back country' to my mom... bad idea. I've been into the BackCountry here in BC and fine, but she has this completely paranoid view of the back country, her views are all provided by Global News that she watches for an hour each day, 5+ days a week.
It's so fuckin stupid, just cause 20 people are mentioned on the news doesn't mean only 20 people go into the backcountry and they all die. I'm like 'Yeah but I've been there before' and she's all worried and shit, and I try to explain to her that I read the avalanche bulletins and know where the danger is and I actually know where I'm skiing, she has no idea and just assumes I'm going Big Mountain skiing in Alaska with big avalanches and shit.
Anyone else have this problem? She says if I need to be rescued I'm paying for it (obviously), but she'll be annoying me for a long time now.
Thought I'd share the stupidness.
