    Thumbs up Taylor Camp

    In the late sixties - early seventies, a bunch of hippies, surfers, and others lived alternative lifestyles on the North Shore of Kauai in tree houses.
    A documentary will be shown at the Hawaii Theatre on Sunday July 13th at 2pm. (only 1 showing)

    http://honoluluweekly.com/cover/

    "n the late 1960s and early ’70s, Kaua’i’s north shore was a home to a thriving–and notorious–community of hippies, surfers, seekers, backpackers and other cultural refugees looking to live free and easy by the sea. Thirty-odd years later, Taylor Camp is immortalized in a new film and two soon-to-be published books."

    Check it out if you can! I gotta work. Bummer Man!

    Thumbs up Re: Taylor Camp

    I just got back from buying 4 tickets at the Hawaii Theatre (Downtown).
    Sure love having a moped... never any parking problems!

    Advance tickets are $10 + $3 "restoration fee" = $13 each
    Tickets at the door are $12 + (etc.)

    Taking a friend and my God Kids!

    Default Taylor Camper's wouldn't pay $13, even to see themselves...

    There is nearby Mark's Garage, accross the street on Pauahi, or the lot behind it. There's a PG accross from Macy's on the same street as HT.
    Pretty much street parking after that, for nearby.

    Isn't there public parking in the new Pflueger dealership building? If so, that is within walking distance.
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    I heard of Taylor Camp "wen small kid time" on Kauai. Wasn't it named after their leader who I was told was related to Elizabeth Taylor? Taylor Camp was the teased punchline for any classmate who smell kusai and no wash wash. There wasn't the possibility that a classmate would be from Taylor Camp as they were located on the North Shore at Hanalei and attended their own Elementary School. If we made fun of any kid for being poor, our parents would slap our head.

    What a choice movie!
    I thoroughly enjoyed it and it seems everyone else did too.
    Told the whole story of how it began all the way through the ending.
    I loved the old photos, stories and present day interviews of folks that were there.
    Importantly showing not only the positive but negatives also.
    Eventually a DVD will come out. I know I'm getting it to share.

    My God Kids liked it too!



    Ahhh, the good ole days...

    It was shown on Kauai about three weeks ago, both shows were sold out. (Great Sound track.) Reminded me of the Woodstock of the Pacific. Met a couple of older dudes that were in the film at a beach party in Hanalei on Saturday they are still here ~ living on the North Shore. If you're ever on Kauai Thursday nights at Tahiti Nue are like a Taylor Camp reunion.

    It's just a matter of time before this movie shows up for free hopefully on PBS Hawaii or some other local TV station.

    People were elated when they were leaving the theater, the young folks as well as the local Taylor Camp people. The Camp vibe lives on here on Kauai

    Let me know what you think when you see the film. I first heard of Taylor Camp while living in Marin County, CA. I used to "house sit" my friends home while she and her son made the pilgrimage to Kauai in the summer to stay at the Camp. Those were extraordinary times from California to Goya ~ there were many “Taylor Camps” in the world.

    No, no, they're not showing it again today!!

    I was thisclose to going to Hawaii Theater, but the address I found on their website was wrong, and I couldn't find it on mapquest. So I called them for directions. Lucky I did, because they told me that the only showing was on Sunday, and not today.

    I'm the Producer of TAYLOR CAMP and am very interested in KALIHIBOY'S 16mm footage. How can I get in touch with him? My email is jwehrheim@pacific-hydro.org. I live on Kauai (808 245-2617) but will be going to Maui soon to complete the final edit and could stop in town for a meeting.

    Aloha

    Thumbs up Re: Taylor Camp

    Thank you sooo much for your effort at producing this documentary/movie.

    I grew up mainly on Oahu and was only 15 in '77 when it was over.
    So didn't get the chance to go, but knew of it and hoped to!

    I filled out a comment card and put my contact info on it.
    In the hopes of purchasing a DVD sometime.

    I stayed for the questions and answer session afterwards.
    That was cool.

    What's your plans for more people to see it?

    Thanks again John.

    Aaaaahhhhhh......MEMORIES !!! Taylor Camp was the first stop on my Hawaiian Adventure. After finishing a house-sitting gig on Oahu in late fall '74, I joined two friends from da Mainland on Kauai and found myself on Haena Beach, camping and livin da kine life. On the occasion of The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, while sitting naked and free on a driftwood log facing THE most beautiful sunset over the ocean, with the full moon about to rise behind over the mountain, my soon to be husband sat down beside me, said "Aloha, want some? " and we began our lives together.There was lotsa delicious food and drink, a HUGE bonfire, plenty da kine,(and prolly a lotta other assorteds) We stayed there about two months before moving to Hana to continue the journey. People were very kind and generous, I am honored to have spent a little time there. What A Trip !!! I MUST get a copy of the movie on DVD......Gotta show my kids......hehehehe......

    Right on WahineMicha!!!
    That is so cool that you actually got to be there.
    I grew up on Oahu and was just too young when it ended. I had my own 'hippie' experience living for two years in my '57 VW Van up & down Cali with my 1st wife and had fun. I probably wouldn't have left Hawaii if I made it to Taylor Camp though... HaHaHa!

    Did any one else make it yesterday?

    My wife, a good friend, his girlfriend and I had a blast!
    We went up to the cool garden on the fourth floor roof area of TAPA Financial Building first, then my camera stopped working, so more photos to come after Mike emails them to me. Met some great people at the Hawaii Theatre and enjoyed the movie. I even bought the DVD for $30.
