Of this all are certain, there is no cure in the foreseeable future. In the end all patients are obsessed with the desire to sleep on the ground and eat pasta while exposing themselves to inclement weather, soap privation and intense fatigue. One mystery perplexes researchers above all others. Those suffering Springer Fever are most joyful in the final stage known as Thruhiking, which is their pursuit of some mythical place they call Katahdin. While they clearly love their families, they seem intimately connected to others with the disorder and even think of themselves as "our tribe."
### But there *is* an answer, Hopeful One -- the so-called "Immersion Therapy". Indulge the Fever completely. Strong statistical evidence (assembled over 50+ years of study) shows the High Immersion Kinesiologic Esthetic (HIKE) to be a highly effective treatment (>95% effective), however, the effects can be short-lived -- at times symptoms re-appear in a matter of months. As the HIKE typically lasts six months, and treatment commonly commences around April 1, this leaves a October 1 - December 1 window of relative peace, in recalcitrant cases. In these cases, the month of December is as you describe -- an increasing pre-occupation with Peripetitia (some writers have referred to this brain-overwhelming consciousness as Grand Orbit Recurring Peripetitia, or GORP). At this point, research is yet inconclusive as to whether HIKE can cure GORP, or GORP can itself reduce the need for HIKE.
