"Buy the ticket, take the ride.", as Hunter S. Thompson said.

Or, as I've often said since March, 2008 when the "new vent" went off: "The quality of life depends on which way the wind blows." Look at the Konaweb cam picture now. That is not a great day. I've seen better, and I've seen much worse. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst, I'd call the current pic about a
4-5. Tomorrow, it could be a 1-2...you just never know...it's all based on how the winds blow and eddy...the pockets of vog that accumulate and move about here and there.

On the other hand, Hilo webcams show lovely weather, vog-wise, although it's raining there at the moment. That's because the winds are blowing SW. If they turn north, Hilo is now in the soup, and the west side of the island is great. Resort cams in the NW show a nice atmosphere. It's almost always nice in the NW and N parts of the island. All of those are at about sea-level, of course. The vog is less at higher elevations, but that's never where people want to vacation.

Give it a chance! You may find no/low vog on your trip, and rejoice in it..while it rains your whole vacation! :D :D
