Hi. My name is David and I have Seasonal Affective Disorder. And it kicks in as soon as the lifts stop. I am not alone. http://www.nytimes.com/2002/08/13/health/seasonal-depression-can-accompany-summer-sun.html?sec=health

Hi David. My name is Michael, and I too have S.A.D. Mine materializes typically in early April, and disappears in early December.

No matter what they say, I have yet to find a cure that doesn't involve flying halfway around the world when the seasons change.

Bud, you and me got to get treatments at that special clinic in Chile. I am checking with Blue Cross to see if it covered.

Take one mountain bike, two kayaks, and a pair of blades, and come back in December.

Yep, I've been out on my mountain bike a few times so far, banging myself up getting used to clipless pedals. Most of the local singletrack is too wet to ride on without damage, so I've stuck to rail trails and paths. Still wish I could ski without traveling a long distance though!

I have CIGNA. They're good at covering experimental protocals. I wonder....

I do this every year. But it's only a treatment, not a cure.

The biking, and climbing, and kayaking are temporary treatments unitl you can get into the backcountry.  The beauty of the BC is you can push back SAD so that it's really only late August and Septmber.  Through in a trip south and you're all good!
