Vix Calls to Hedge Short Vol Strat?

As a brief addendum if you treat the VIX as a mean reverting series (which it is) you can choose to enter monthly calls (weekly, whatever) only if the VIX is above a certain level (IE above its normal range).

The sample size is likely to be small and the scheme very prone to curve fitting.  But it is worth consideration.
