Puna is well known as the home of people considered 'strange' and 'different' in our ever more invasive Society. It's a time-warp right out the Sci-Fi Fantasy stories. Before I moved here, I thought all the Vashon Hippies of the '70s had become Corporate Lawyers.

Instead, as we considered Retirement, and visualized moving to a warm, sunny, 'Tropical Paradise', we found a spot that would require little change for anti-regimented Vashon Refugees.

Pahoa is so similar to Vashon in the '60s and 70's, that my kids asked me how long it took to find the twin of their Adolescent World? One of the Bars even has the same name, 'The Alibi', to add to the ambience... Puna was, and is, a refuge for those seeking less State Encroachment in our lives!

Punatic is a label I cheerfully adopted. Where else do people still live with doors unlocked, and windows uncovered?
