Some people seem to regard the volcanic air pollution as a virtual plague and others seem not to notice. I'm curious how many people have felt like it was bad enough to seriously mess with the quality of their vacation.
I had another thread that turned into a discussion of vog, among other things, and thought it would be better to start anew on this topic.
I appreciate the advice of the DEs, who clearly thought it was a mistake to stay in the Kona area, but I'm curious how many people have stayed there a week or two and whether the vog was a big issue for them. I'm also reading that it's mainly an afternoon problem. Is that right?
We thought we'd booked two weeks in Hawaii, but now it sounds like two weeks in hell. We're trying to assess whether we need to just start over on our planning and eat the deposit, or at least some of it.
