Grandpa may not be in the Tuff Shed much longer. What will happen to the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival?

News from the Boulder Daily Camera: Nederland’s most famous frozen resident could be on his way out of the small mountain town he helped put on the map.

Trygve Bauge, the grandson of the late “Grandpa” Bredo Morstoel — Nederland’s famous Frozen Dead Guy — said he is considering moving the frozen corpse from the Tuff Shed where he has been since 1993 to the Cryonics Institute in Michigan by 2015….

“It’s this just really crazy story,” said Amanda MacDonald, who purchased the festival from the Nederland Chamber of Commerce after helping to organize it for several years.

MacDonald said that while she would like “Grandpa” Bredo to stay, she still believes Frozen Dead Guy Days will survive without the aforementioned frozen dead guy. She said dates for the 2013 festival have already been announced as March 8-10.

I brought The Newly-Dead Game™ there two years ago, and we had a lot of freezing fun. It was so much better hanging out in the Black Forest Restaurant this year than being in a wind-blown tent in 2011. I hope the festival goes on, with or without Grandpa in the vicinity.

A Good Goodbye
