FUN in Second Life is not always making new teacher friends and chatting with them about new technologies and projects. What are some of your most fun places to escape to in Second Life? Note 'em here and SLurl 'em, too!

Maybe I'll suggest organizing this by contributor:

Jeremy's already mentioned the Greenies Home. YAY! I love that place! (sgm)

I'm also fond of the huge cruise ship build, the SS Galaxy. I worked on ships for a year of my life a long time ago, and this one is the real deal.

I also like to sail. A simple search for sailing will get you off to the right foot, and purchase of a small "tako" boat is a good first step with that foot. (sgm)

This just in: Halloween costume shopping! :) (sgm)

I like all of the cool RPGs and gaming sims in world. I don't know all of the RPGs but have recently gotten involved with a Star Wars RPG as an assignment for Dr. Dodge's Experimental Learning through Games and Sims grad course. I know of a couple 'gaming' islands such as Myst, Pot Healer's adventures and Ramapo on the TG (sorry haven't gotten the whole slurl thing down yet). Onder Skall also has a video arcade island that I don't remember the name of, but have a lm for if you want it.

For the most part though, as a gamer, I don't do much 'fun' stuff outside of social interaction in SL. If I want to have 'fun' with technology, I go to my Xbox 360 to play Halo 3, Madden '08 or Rainbow Six. I even taught my five year old daughter how to play Lego Star Wars II and she loves it. She has learned a lot about 3D perspective, problem solving and not giving up when frustrated.

Somebody :)?
I like the virtual action stuff (biking, skydiving...) - sign perhaps that I am a geek and not a true athlete. And I like to "do" these things with friends and colleagues. These activities add the campus experience to distance learning, broadens a sense of community and adds laughter to the serious and intellectual content of our interactions. slurl on the way
SCUBA diving - this is a total gas but costs $L300 for the suit
