MONTH 7 By Ben Oliver

reached Level 3 Fa­ther­hood, in which one must at­tach stuŠ to the ex­te­rior of one’s ve­hi­cle on sum­mer hol­i­days. So I made my ‘irst use of the stan­dard re­tractable towhook and the op­tional dou­ble bike rack which at­taches to it eas­ily and with re­as­sur­ing so­lid­ity. It’s ‘lex­i­ble enough to han­dle both my road bike and a BMX, and piv­ots to give ac­cess to the boot. De­spite the very full load I man­aged my best-ever tank at 42.6mpg, us­ing ac­tive cruise con­trol for most of the 600 miles to Done­gal.
