Frozen Dead Guy Days

Frozen Dead Guy Days

If you’ve not been up to Nederland for Frozen Dead Guy Days, I suggest you check it out. While I’ve never actually participated in these festivities, I have heard it is quite fun and worth the drive up to Ned. FDGD is going on March 10th – 12th. I am going to see if we can make it up there this year and here is a brief list of the things I would like to do … but don’t forget, there is so much more to do than what I list below.

– See the film ‘Grandpa’s Still in the Tuff Shed’
– See the FDGD Cryonic Parade
– Watch the Tuff Shed Coffin Races
– Watch the Rocky Mountain Oyster Eating Contest (there is no way I’d ever participate in this, but very funny to watch!)

If you never heard about Frozen Dead Guy Days, then here is a brief summary of what it is. Some crazy Norwegian guy died in Norway back in 1989, was cryogenically frozen and shipped off to Nederland, Colorado. His Grandson took it upon himself to freeze ol’ Grandpa and apparently no one really knows if Grandpa had wanted this. He now lies in a Tuff Shed and will be ‘brought back to life’ at some point (who knows when this will occur, because it’s all really just a bit silly). Anyway, you can read the entire tale on the Nederland Chamber of Commerce website and check out the list of events that will be taking place.

If anyone does take the journey up to Nederland for FDGD, be sure share your stories and/or pictures!
