    Lots of spam on Food Forum? Check Alabama Forum...

    Thanks for the clarifications which reinforce what I rather anticipated, I suppose. I would definitely check any CCR property restrictions, and have a peek at the geophysical substrate surveys for any proposed site.
    I'd like to have a creek alongside the property, ideally. Of course, I'd like to know a bit about catchment systems for freshwater, and also about the feasibility of a septic system as opposed to dealing with a nasty cesspool. Somehow, I had thought that more of the subdivisions would have sewer, cable, etcetera. This is all up in the air, of course, until life changes my wife's mind about relocation and leaving the old folks & adult married kids, (and an step grand-daughter), back on the mainland.
    I do still have an abiding intuition that I'll make it to Hawai'i, though, somehow, someway, someday not too far away. Aloha, man.

    Mahalo, Leilani Guy. I'm just trying to get a feel for the general culture; for instance, a 60 yr. old hippy/Vet buying a lot in Puna/Pahoa, having livingbamboo.com put up a small cabin, getting off-grid solars & a composting toilet, or (city water/sewer?), growing some medi-mota, and kicking back. Maybe teaching English skills at a community center, or tutoring college students in same. Reflections?

    Aloha TWB, just a short reply, as I've just gotten my PC back up after 3 weeks. We get occasional Vog, but the majority of the time the trades take it to Kona and beyond. I am familiar with R. Christie but do not know him. I have a license to grow my own. It is not hard to qualify, just have a legitimate ailment. $4900 should suffice to live quite comfortably. If your '55 is your baby, bring it. There are many classics here, though it takes extra care to keep up.

    Aloha, leilaniguy; I was just wondering about your viewpoint, a "day in the life" as you knock about Paradise. Any whiffs of Vog? Other herbaceous aromas? Do you know Roger Christie and his The Hawaiian Church folks? If I /we showed up there and settled in, would $4900. a month get us a modest home with a bit of view, along with shopping at Walmart/local foodvendors? Should I ship our ol' '55 GMC pickup, or buy a local rustbucket Toyota, or what? Just your intuitive advice, brah.
    Mahalo! Torg

    Aloha leilaniguy: I love those Trojan kit homes that are very affordable, they say HPM stands for higher priced models, lol. Just wondering is the Hawaiian Shores Rec. Est. a nice place to raise a family, just like the others I also bought a lot in HSRE. Didn't want one in HPP after viewing all the sex predators there. Kona & Waikoloa is out of my reach, maybe one day. Please get back to me. Tell me, talk story, are the locals welcoming of the mainlanders or shunned? Schools in Hilo are better than Pahoa? Talk story please. Enjoy your slice of paradise, hoping to join you one day.

    Aloha Leilaniguy!

    I see that you have lived in Nanawale and am wondering if you can give me a better skinny about the community. Your link to the Hawaii County police search page was really helpful. I have heard alot of bad things about Nanawale. What is your take on it? I am investigating the possiblity of maybe building there on a lot I bought and will be heading out there next week from Wash. to spend some time checking it out.

    Enjoy your straight-forward posts and look forward to hearing from you. Perhaps we can get together when I get there sometime.
    Enjoy all those leftovers!
