First name is Darrell, go by Quigster on most games and on-line sites. I am a retired, gray-haired, bifocal wearing old-timer from the USA, East Texas to be more specific. I retired after nearly 40 years in health care, working as a paramedic, nurse and then a mid-level practitioner. I have a wonderful wife who is also retired, a couple full grown kids, and some grandchildren.
Just downloaded Elite Dangerous a few days ago and getting my feet wet in the starting area. The PVE nature of this group appealed to me as I rather despise PVP, and outright detest Gankers and Griefers. My approach to computer games in particular, and most games in general, is that games are for relaxation and a pleasant distraction from the daily stresses of life. Because I tend to focus on the non-combat component of most games, my combat skills (flying in the case of this game) are very poor. So far my time in ED has been in solo mode; both because of my desire to avoid hostile activity and also because my internet connection is so poor I would probably do better with two cans and a string.
I did fill out the application for the group, choosing the America's "branch". I read the question about the Mobius faction, but marked it no as I did not really understand what that was about. I am usually in-game early morning (4-5am till about 7am) or evening (6pm till about 8pm) my local time (USA central time, GMT -5). I own a few acres of land and the upkeep around here keeps me pretty busy during the day.
