Big Island, Hawaii

Lots of growers here. Scene is low key and laid back. Communes around. The hippies are all in the Puna District mainly in the Pahoa area from Kalapana to Pahoa and from Pahoa over to Volcano, although some hangout in the Kona district.

My Score:
Lived in upper Puna during late 80's and early 90's. I got there just after The mayor said that growers were some of his best friends and Pu'u O'o was spouting fire. Brought from the mainland little money and a big drinking habit. Drank too much to grow too much, drinking lots and hard work don't go together and successfully growing is LOTs of work. Ran into the racism but found that if you are willing to learn the customs, respect the people and give back a bit you can get along pretty well with most anyone. When I first got there you could buy land really cheap but by the time I had to leave the prices were rising fast with no end in sight. Crank was rearing its ugly head. I left in 1992 because my probation officer had violated me for smoking, he did not care too much about drinking, but I did not feel like going to jail for a year. I used to hitchhike at times, lived way back off the main roads but could always get a ride out and back in with my beer or vodka. Always had a number or two to share. or a beer. Once I got picked up by an 80 year old man and his wife. I just loved the place. Kind of wish I had just done my year and not left. Jesus has gotten me sober and I have kind of a real job but I still kind of miss Fern Acres. If anyone reading this can guess who I am you can email me at czydiamond@cableone.net. I knew lots of people and lots of people knew me, at least by sight. Never did get into the Pidgin, haoles who did just seemed like fakes to me. Hawai'i kind of seems like the only home I've ever known. Maybe I was getting to be Kamaaina. Probably the best years of my life in spite of all the booze. I'd love to come back but i'm still pretty poor and my health aint that good any more. I just wish I'd stayed in touch. Its not that I did'nt care but more old and present pains and not wishing to call someone and admit that things were not going all that well. Hawai'i is truly a special place full of special people. Evil exists there as it does anywhere in this place but God has also kissed this island. Mahalo

93! Hello I wanted to introduce myself because I have been mystified by the amazing energy and love you all have for everything on this beautiful earth. I currently live in California and I am doing lots of research on being a part of an intentional community or commune in Hawaii because I feel that it coming time for me to choose that path. I feel like I am surrounded by people who put too much emphasis on material things. I feel that the farther we get away from nature, the more chaos we create in our lives. I want to feel like I am a part of something that is in sync with the energy that comes from all things within the universe. I feel like the Hawaii community can assist me in Asana,Pranayama, Mantrayoga, Yama, Niyama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi studies and internal healing. I would very much like to be invited to your community for at least one year in order to develop my studies, clear my mind, be a part in contributing to building your community, and hopefully we can all learn from each other. If accepted into your community I would like to be there April of 2007. 93/93 Love and Light Homunculus wehauntyou@yahoo.com

Hawaii......Wow man what a dream about to come true. I am a nomad wanderer from Richmond Virginia Soon to be On my one way trip to Kauai(hopefully)Or into Oahu and then puddle jumping into Lehua. Either way I am bound for paradise....at what price.....Who cares, its expensive to live anywhere nowadays. Anyways, I have been a carpenter for 8 years and hope to use my skills to my advantage while there...But I am open to anything, Maybe Mama's Fish House needs a dishwasher. The point is I am coming prepared But with Rock as my pillow and Sky as my cieling...Looking for any oppourtunity I am given for work or barter. If arms are open then I am open for constructive critisism. I am supposed to come with a friend but I have a feeling he is going to hold me back(our intentions are different thats all). Everybody feel free to email me at the above address, perhaps we can help each other! Kudos

I am looking for my son Anthony William Peterson aliasTony alias Ocean or Sea Mountain or something like that. He was last seen on Hawaii but moves around to the other islands in a blue van we have been told. We know that he had a girl friend Sarah and her children. We know that a car he owned was found on PAUA a few years ago and that he does not know how much he is missed. If you see him or know of him, our family could use a leg up. We do not know why he has not contacted us for 6 years but i am sure he should know that my father-in-law died, My father died, I became a minister, he has 3 nieces and 3 nephews, we wish him our love. contact us at 409-423-5414 Thank you!!!

I've lived in Hawaii for 15 years and I'm 23 now. I love hawaii, but it isn't a place for a free ride. I did lifeguarding for a while and there was a time where there was about 7 of us living in our cars (Finding a place to live in you car is getting harder). I've seen the island grow and all the million dollar homes going up over here. Right now I live in a nice shack with my husband and two year old in the back of someone's property for a decent amount of rent money. We are trying to save up for property to have a nice little farm on. We are hard workers and it will probably take us a while to reach our goal. It definitely helps to start out in Hawaii with some money. Just buying food can cost a lot and I grow a lot of my own fruits and veggies. So, if you want to come to Hawaii my advice is to check it out first and plan on making some money in some way. Everyone's experience can be different too.

i like to live outside for months at a time. im getting used to it in small dosages so that in hopefully a couple years from now ill be able to do it permentatly. for the months of june-september id like to try out kauai. Im not familure with the area at all but i woke one morning knowing i wanted to go to the na pali coast with haveing no knowlege of kauai before. Im pretty in touch with who I am and the world i know through my own perspective, but i dont know how much of a "hippie" i really am. I'm me, no lables. and i would never try to be something im not to fit into a stereotype. But i was hoping any individuals who visit this site might have some insightful information to the island of kauia (back country expecially). i dont bring a tent...i sleep outside with me and the dirt and the stars in the sky with the exception of a blanket and a device to purify water in a small backpack. (i dislike the fact i need an exception but im talking smalls steps to where i want to be.) im rambling , my apoligies, im not very good at this internet thing. But to the point if anyone could give me some good information on where to go, hidden caves, tree canepies, ect. please post something for me or email me at pinkvelvet89@yahoo.com (and please mind the spelling, never quite got that skill down.)

Kynd friends, I lived on Kauila St. in Hilo town on the Big Island for 2 years. let me tell you everyhting in Hawaii brought in from somewhere else and very expensive. No cheap living there, no way. Now i have the real Paradise. No phony hula shyte. Greenfield, Mass. okay, you say joking, right? Not joking. Pleanty of cheap, cheap apartments in phunky old farmhouses. A growing community of kynd folks, hippies, musicians, artists, writers, crafts, herbs, shrooms. Easy to hook up. Mellow friendly place. Like Seattle or Puna 20 years ago. Skinny dipping and camping along the Green River, hang out at Greenfields Organic Market, Cafe Koko, Peoples Pint, my livingroom. Summer of Love 2006 - Greenfield Massachusetts

I moved my family to Puna a couple of years ago to get away from the rat race of California. Apparantely I moved to a different place than Rose and many others that have posted here because we LOVE life here and wouldn't trade it for anywhere. Sure, things are not perfect here but then everywhere has it's issues. The hard drug and racism issues are certainly no more previlent here than what I have seen in other places. And as for the 'free services' and ability to live (mooch) off of others here: I don't think you can go anywhere and expect to be greeted warmly by the existing residents if you aren't willing to carry your own weight and pay for the things you need. So panhandlers and obvious bums aren't 'respected' here anymore than anywhere else. On the other hand, what we and most others love most about the Puna area is the diversity of the residents and the acceptance of alternative lifestyles. Being a hippy here is not an issue. No one is going to look at you funny if you walk through Pahoa with dreadlocks and bare feet. Being different and anti-establishment is okay here. But you need to take responsibility for yourself and not expect others to support you. If you want to live in a tent with no power and no car and no job - that's okay. Literally thousands do it and love their ability to live that kind of life here. But they grow their own food and herbs and aren't intrusive to others. So I guess life anywhere can be good or can be shitty depending on you perspective. But life is too short to be unhappy. Rose and the others that haven't found happiness here owe it to themselves to find happiness elsewhere. Just don't be so presumptious to think everyone shares your dismal outlook on this paradise.

Hey, I know where you can live for "free", in jail, dont have to pay for food, lodging what a deal. Everything costs money, if you are not willing to work, you do not deserve to have things, cars, smoke, whatever. The world does not owe you a living, not even in Hawaii.

This was just what I was looking-for; the key word-here was 'puna' and I found this site. read some local big island ,experienced -advice-givers,who really know the score.Thankx , I just saved a bundle on travle expenses, by not going there ! In the 60s, I lived-worked-cheaply in honolulu for several years,and it is amazing how much the islands have changed.Big Money can be bad news for paradise,and I had planned to make a "do i wanna live there?" kind of trip to the big island,but NO-THanks, since the 'hard-life' described by Da Whahennie-lady-local, from living there 17 years,was enough to say'adios' to any thought of trying to 'retire' there. looks like Panama will be my next trip,to see if it beats 'DA-KINE" and "mo-bettah" place to live.And I don't have to speak 'pidgen', just spanish! As an old hippie,will forget about hawaii,since it looks like the cheap land on the big island has dissapeared up the asses of the filthy-rich, and yes, the aloha spirit still remains with the hawaiians,but 'da-haole' Newcommer , with little money is screwed! "Hola,senior, could you direct me to the nearest hippie retreat for old-farts,since I am new to your country of panama? SI-senior, you can live better and cheaper than Hawaii, and we have big snakes that eat all the 'big pigs and rats'.The scorpions have less venom and the centipedes are a local dish, and you can grow your buds,nobody cares, no problemas."

I have lived on the Big Isle for 14 years now and what is happening here lately just makes me sick. Land USED to be cheap here but those days are quickly going. Used to be you could get 3 acres for around $150 a month w/ no improvments but now even raw land will be a payment in the hundreds - unless you bring cash. Three acres cash used to be under 10 grand now more like around 25,000 and rising quickly. Building materials are very overpriced. There is a legal med-ijauana law but only two Dr.s on the island do the certification and they are swamped. The permit gives you the right to 7 plants and 3 ozs of dried material. Otherwise expect to pay upwards of $600 an oz for Puna Buddah.... What they call Shake is cheaper but often no more than just leaf for $30 an oz. Living is harsher then you would expect - everyone says 'But you live in paradise...' but paradise is expensive, there are few food banks, the 'free' dental & med service is run by the judgemental catholik church - they charge to fill teeth w/ black fillings etc. - sliding fee scale. It is a great place to come if you are young and strong and have money but a sucky place to spend your retirement years. The jungle is strong and you have to fight it back w/ brute strength and a machete, you have to catch water to use, there are very large wild boars everywhere,(just last week I saw a group of seven not even a mile from where I live!) centipedes that sting, scorpions, rats (that give you leptosrirosis) - it's a hard life. On the other hand you spend next to nothing on heating in the winter. There is a lot of hard drug use here too and the desperate people that brings - there have been home invasion robberies. But there is magic here too - a lot of energy connected to this place but you have to be ready to work your ass off for it.

Youre right, it IS a bitch finding work on the west coast. You should get out of L>A bra, now. Dont go to hawaii and try to rent a studio, though. THe more money you give to the apartment people, the more they will make and pretty soon Hawaii is Van Nuys, know what I mean. Its tropical, all you need is a little shack. Or sleep on someones couch,, shit. you will find people in Hawaii who want to help you. You have to want to help them, though. And you have to want to help yourself. If you say you dont like LA and its not just cuz you are lazy and would be in that same predicament anywhere you go, then go. Dont swim in a fucking t shirt. Eat healthy and work hard. Your skin will get used to the sun. Oh and use the trees for their shade, thats what they are there for. As for Joey Aquarius, I think that he is telling you how to get a job at the Hyatt or the Sheridan rather than how to actually have a good time in Hawaii. You know the old saying, "god made dirt, so dirt dont hurt..." get dirty, brah. And lean on as many cars as you possibly can. Especially Joe Cool AquARIUS'S.

Good pot cheap land!!! Lots of hard drug users alot of camper get held up with guns, hide your camp well. It is one of the poorest counties in the U.S so land is cheap and their is alot of hippies, but alot of speed freaks to. you can buy an acre of land for 1 or 2 thousand dollors so theirs lots of people in the jungle growing puna buds, but theirs also lots of people cooking speed, and all that wierd shit that comes with it. BRING a RAIN COAT in the winter on day i was their it rained 23 inces in 24hrs.

The Big Island is as amazing as you make it. Many comments on this page are circumstances. The Puna district is very relaxing, laid back, verses other parts of the island. I rather stay around Pahoa, there are fewer tourists that visit this area. It is a very earth friendly town with a wonderful natural food store, an amazing old school mexican joint. It is a very simple life compared to the other parts of the island. If your in the Puna district there are many hidden treasures.

Just stay real and relaxed if visiting Pohoa. Everyone is friendly and the spirit of Aloha is abundant. Get a bite to eat at LaQuinns! Its practically a joke to suggest one should be "clean looking". This is the rainforest! Not to mention most people around here work in the Earth, or at least play in the Earth...we are ALL dirty looking! Baths are encouraged, those who dont bathe with regularity are typically called Heppys...As in Hep C. They are known to dookie on the beach of Kalapana FYI.

Pahoa has Kalani Honua and captain cook has dragon someting. Kau'u has woman runs commune or ranch. Honoka'a also has some sort of retreat center as well. this is more organized. I actually went to the woman's ranch or commune the owner who is from Canada's wealthy family. She plays drum. http://www.kalani.com/ http://www.penrose-press.com/IDD/edu/cards/E1945.html

Hilo sucks. I remember that I used to live in Hilo, Pepekeo(yea the section 8 apartment). There are old lsland life style(plantation slave life style) and new from mainland(hippy, drug run, etc). and New life style people either moving to Kona or Puna. Some hippy got decent job(real estate) and moving to Kona, or growing the Puna butter in Puna then finding expensive property in West Hawaii. Ohh well they once start getting large amount of money, and they are moving to Waimea and Kealakekua where millionea hippys runs communes(women's) or run bed and breakfast in captan cook area. I feel such hippys are little snob and Puna hippys are soo dork. http://www.hawaiiinformation.com/REsearch/IDX/mlsHawaii/searchResults.asp

Greetings! I am a hippie living in LA, trying to bug out of here and move to somewhere life can be had without a huge bankroll or bunch of degrees to impress the man. Can a hippie with such a humble dream of having a studio appartment, a good job, cable tv, and the right to have long hair and a ear ring without getting grief, find happiness in hawaii? Like, what kind of entry level idiot jobs could I land there? I cant even get job here in LA flipping burgers because I cant say it in spanish. I was thinking there has got to be some good jobs over there, that would gladly take a hippie whos best knowlege and skills are in underwater basketweaving... I.E. someone who needs a brake to start building a life, in such a cool environment.

Dear Hawaii traveller- I'll try to help you out here. DO NOT ariive here broke. The cost of food alone can wipe you out quick, and you CANNOT live on Bananas. BE CLEAN LOOKING. Your hair can be long (About 20% of Hawaiians have long hair) but if it looks BUGGY or RATTY you're gonna get called a 'LEPO' (think LEPROSY) and shunned. CLEANLINESS is EVERYTHING over here. DON'T lean on anyone's VEHICLE. It's an INSULT! If you're really FAT don't go naked at the nude beach. People can get awfully rude awfully fast. Don't beg and spare change as a lifestyle here. It's almost the Third World here and the sight of White Americans begging has a discombobulating effect on the locals. Don't think that because you play a little guitar that you're gonna get over with everyone. EVERYBODY in Hawaii plays and sings. It's like breathing, so you better be really GOOD or just put that thing back in the case. Hmmm-let's see.. ANY cut or scrape will become INFECTED with a mean type of STAPH if you don't IMMEDIATELY rub some TEATREE OIL on it. Bring some with you. It's at the health food store. STAY OUT OF THE SUN. This is really the deep TROPICS. You will burn SO FAST!!!! Wear a t-shirt in the ocean! Lather up with SPF a million! You'll get tan anyway, so don't worry about that. DO NOT BRING WEED into the state! They don't care if you puff a bit while you're there. It's not that big a deal anymore. Just don't bring any in or especially OUT. Ask around-it's about. And be sure to try and spend your dough with REAL HAWAAIANS as opposed to the usurpers that run the place. REAL Hawaiians are pretty poor and can really use the help. You can recognize them by their wonderful auras and sense of Aloha.

The open market in Hilo on Wednesdays and Saturdays also features a good cross section of "hippies" I met a glassblower from California and a flute maker from Eugene that would definitely fit into the category.
