I don't have the logbook in front of me, but I'm in that area, too.
I started out Part 61, while I was working a full time job. Sometimes, the runway wouldn't get plowed after a snow since the town owned the airport. We were a low priority. So, I spent time catching up after getting rusty during those down times.
I had no intention of flying professionally. I worked hard to get back to the affinity I had for flying between age 10 and 18, and tried to fit my training in around the job.
Eventually, I decided that I wasn't nearly as happy as when I had been flying. That's still true today. Since I wasn't able to just fly around on my own to satisfy the urge due to cost, I had to adopt aviation as my new career. I was my second best decision in my life, and by comparison, that's saying something.
I had 42 hours in my logbook but I cheated. My dad is a pilot and
I grew up flying with him. He was not an Instructor but he taught
me alot of things to do AND NOT TO DO! I started my official training when I was 17 years old. I own a small flight school now
and find that the average for a Private is between 55 and 75
