Ever had your family try to hijack your holiday plans? Well, meet our adventurous hero, the 'Colorado Climber', who is facing a mountain of family drama, and it's not the kind he's used to conquering. He's a 26-year-old Ohioan with a passion for climbing Colorado's 14,000ft peaks, and he's got just nine left on his list. But when his brother heard about the upcoming trip, he had a different idea. Let's find out what happened next... 🏔️

The Mountain Man's Dilemma: Family or Freedom? 🤔

Our 'Colorado Climber' is stuck between a rock and a hard place. His family insists he should take his niece and nephew along on his solo trip, turning his mountain climbing adventure into a kiddie vacation. His brother and mother are pressuring him to 'settle down' and be more family-oriented. But our adventurer has other plans. He wants to enjoy his trip, reconnect with old friends, and maybe even find a new place to call home in Colorado. He's not ready to trade his hiking boots for babysitting duties just yet. Let's see what the internet has to say about this family feud...⛰️👨‍👧‍👦🔥

"NTA - I'm not getting the logic of you needing to bring kids who are not yours on your vacation. Oh wait, there is no 'logic' here. LMAO - years back, my in-laws invited my then (childless) self and husband to Disney World. They made it clear we'd be paying our own way (flights, tickets, and our share of the condo rental). Then SIL let it slip that it 'will be so nice for [BIL] and I to get out because you guys can watch the kids.' Ummm, no. I'm not spending my hard earned money and precious vacation time watching someone else's kids in a place I don't even particularly like. We noped out of that one and they didn't seem to understand why. SMH." - The audacity of expecting free babysitting on your vacation 🙄
