Dad of two, Don White-Nubalince from Modbury, took his children to their quarterly “non-pay-week activity” last weekend. After narrowly avoiding the white goat and forcing some pellets into a clearly already well fed wallaby, his children asked to climb Gumeracha’s second steepest attraction (just behind Gumeracha Oval).
Encouraging their dad to climb with them, Don immediately became flustered.
‘Nah, you kids would have more fun climbing it without me, right?’ mumbled Don ‘I’m not scared of climbing it or anything, that’s for sure. But I’m just saying, you don’t want me to climb with you’.
Nevertheless, his kids persisted while Don maintained he wasn’t afraid. He finally caved in.
However, Don was only able to make it up the regular steps section while his children headed up the ladders.
‘I’ll just wait here for a bit. I’m not scared!’ Don yelled up the narrow dark passageways.
‘It’s not the climbing, it’s the coming down that’s the real scary part’ he mentioned to three other dads waiting on the first level.
Don was then denied a certificate.
