Radio control everything, Fly fishing,Fly Tying, ATV'ing (we went to west virginia this year with 14 guys.....good time), Restoring a 1928 motorcycle, camping, and I have played guitar for a long time, so I have a home-recording studio (but haven't done anything for years with it). I had a motorcycle I loved until a deer took me out and broke 4 ribs, but I am looking for a replacement now...........geeze, I have too many hobbies.

We started fly fishing last year when we went to the white river in Arkansas trout fishing, It's harder than a spinning reel but fun. I also have a fly tying kit and Ive tried a few times but not very much yet.

STO is great I played it quite a lot but as of about 6 months ago endgame was somewhat boring and other players were TRAGICALLY bad. I had a lot of fun with it for a month or two and like u say it's free, nothing to lose.

I enjoy target shooting. I own a customized XD9 and a couple of Glocks. I love my G34. I also own a Chevy Nova with a Small Block 400 with forged internals, ported heads, custom cam and Holley double pumper (currently doing the wet sanding and getting it ready for paint)

Tried it last night so far I'm liking it somewhat just controls are kinda clunky
also I love how it has xbox controller setup for flying the ship, but lacks weapon, and impulse engine controls... and I don't see any way to assign em either...
kinda aggravating how it seems everything in the game costs real cash too...
I've played a few micro transaction games, but this one every single screen has things to but for real cash it seems

My buddy is trying to get me to play EVE online, but I don't want another monthly reoccurring sub based game

I used to be a very serious gamer (PC mainly, but I also own every mainstream console ever produced) competing in worldwide competition at FPS (Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 mainly), at one time I was ranked top 3000 in the world at both.

I also dabble in photography and a lil bit o RC. lol

Lately, I'm playing Borderlands 2 DLC, Skyrim (modded), Grand Theft Auto 4 (modded).
I just realized something, you said you where a serious gamer but you don't play club penguin!?! not really
