Bringing this particular sequence of posts to a conclusion, I now have the night rating on my pilot's license.  Totaling up my log book, I have 121.5 hours.  [This amuses me somewhat.  121.5 MHz is the aviation distress frequency.]

This breaks down as:
- 58.0 hours dual daytime, including 4.5 cross-country
- 48.7 hours solo daytime, including 7.7 cross-country
- 9.8 hours dual nighttime, including 2.3 cross-country
- 5.0 hours solo nighttime, including 2.0 cross-counry
I have 8.1 hours of actual instrument time, and 2.2 hours in a simulator.

The flight school requires that I fly each type of aircraft once a month to maintain night currency.  That seems ridiculous to me, but until I own the aircraft I don't get to make the rules.  So: if anybody wants to go flying at night just let me know.  I expect I'll be able to keep current through the winter, but will have to lapse when next summer arrives.
