I am age 58. Not a hippie but a free thinker period so much of what you all talked about is what I am looking for! It's been hard to find anything on the internet. Gainesville? A possibility! Has anyone found anything yet

Looking for same .age 58. Planning for the future! What's out there????

I totally agree.. my husband is 66 and I'm 58 and we are hip and interested in culture, music and the arts and as I google, I find the same results. The communities are not like minded folks that we could relate too! But there sure are plenty of us and we need a place!

Homes bigger then "tiny" but not bigger them motor home.. with Trees! And gardens! And flowers! And music! And art facilities! Craft brewery even! I'll help someone start and organize if you have the money and the place.. lets do this! I'm on east coast .. Maine, Rhode Island..

Like others here, I am in my 60's and was in the Haight during the 60's and lived at Morningstar Ranch and Wheeler's in Sonoma county and then made my home in the Bay area until moving to Alaska in 2006. I now a small house, but am interested in moving back to the pacific northwest, Portland or Vancouver washington, maybe Northern California. I have often lived in community and think that group owned land with community space and tiny homes would be an upgrade from the cabins and treehouses of our youth. people are building co-housing complexes, I like having my own space within a community of people. Anyone else thinking along these lines? I would love to be part of a dialogue about creating or joining a community like this.

So I'm 63 in body but 25 in spirit. This post has been around for a few years now and I'm wondering if this idea ever took off? I am seriously looking, am collecting SS now and just want to be with good hearted, likeminded people. I'm not materialistic, have a kind heart, love animals, love (most) people and love God, but not religious. I have 3 rescue cats and a little rescue chiweenie. Where is my place? Where is my tribe? Are you out there?

Consider Mexico...I live in a small town 20 miles north Puerto Vallarta. Medical care, weed and beer are all reasonable (cheap), weather is perfect all year around (except some sissies don't like the high humidity in the summer.). In the evening I usually share a cocktail and a toke with any one of a dozen neighbors (we don't talk politics, religion or health issues) or I take a sunset walk and swim at the beach with my dog. Most nights there is a club with a live band where you will find a group of 60-somethings, 70-somethings and 80 somethings dancing up a storm with their 40-something children and 20-something grandchildren. Neighbors look out for each other and if and when I need it a full time caregiver it will cost me about $400-$500 a month.

so ...i guess this is why there are still no hippy retirement communities... all dreams and no actions. in our new #45 world, starting to look at europe for potential escape.

i just found this string....my story is in all of yours....please tell me you all gathered and started a place!!! I am looking for home!!! ....any assistance would be appreciated...namaste'

I'm coming way late to the game here, but has anyone found their ideal "aging hippie community"? I'm helping someone do a blog about just this kind of thing--the need for community, the turning away from convention, seeking an authentic life.... I'd love to do something about this blog thread and any communities you may have discovered. Thanks, and happy seeking!
