How far does host responsibility go? We run a busy BnB close to a landmark mountain that over the years has claimed lives. Though I always point out the dangers to our mountain tourists about underestimating what looks like an easy climb, they often shrug off advice and leave me concerned for their safety. Often on their return I find they have not left details of their hike with our DOC rangers, or they are flippant about almost getting lost. I'm not their mother and its not my role as host to worry about them, though I've had folk tell me to ring search and rescue if they're not back by say 10pm. What would you do?
