JW's on the Big Island of Hawaii???

My hubby and I are going to be in Hawaii from 01/17-01/27. We'll be staying at the Hilton Resort in the Waikoloa Village. It's been 3 years since I've been to the big island and I have a horrible memory. I'm trying to get my bearings before we leave for a change lol Anyhow...

Anyhow... I pulled up Google Earth and I still can't tell. Will we be closer to the congregation on Mamalohoa Hwy near Kona International Airport or to the northward tip on Hawi Road? (or someplace else I missed entirely?)

I'll be going alone, while my husband is in classes and I get lost VERY easily lol, so the straighter the path the better.

Any help would be much appreciated. I'll call the Brothers when we arrive, but I'm trying to plan ahead to ease some anxiety.
Update: hehe- thanks everyone! I would LOVE to get a GPS... maybe our car will be equipped with one. I *think* I've gone out in Service with the Friends on the Big Island... but I confuse them easily. My husband attends an Opthamologist convention every year in Hawaii. Every year, though they rotate it between... show more hehe- thanks everyone!

I'm determined to take better notes this year lol.
Thanks for the info about the international convention. I hadn't realized that was coming right up!
Update 2: Lavender- I suffer panic disorder/extreme anxiety due to a chemical imbalance. I take meds for it and am in counseling. It has NOTHING to do with the congregation. I love traveling and meeting the Friends from all over the world. My anxiety has to do with leaving my home, my children, my local congregation. ... show more Lavender- I suffer panic disorder/extreme anxiety due to a chemical imbalance.

My anxiety has to do with leaving my home, my children, my local congregation. I don't like to travel but once I get there I love it lol
Usually I'm a wreck up to 3 months before traveling anywhere... this time my anxiety didn't strike hard until I had under a month to go- a HUGE improvement for me.
Update 3: Thanks to the link to the WT/A! article. I'm going to listen to it this weekend.
Now, how in the world do I chose a best answer lol.
Hmm.. inny minny miney moe :D
