Frozen Dead Guy Days

After last week's hike we talked about a possible hike on March 9 or 10 somewhere along the Peak-to-Peak, then a visit to Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland. I'm volunteering on the morning of the 9th so could not make a hike then, but I'd love to show folks around Ned.

    okay after a re-read, I realize that we are not hiking, no wonder why I couldn't answer a friend when she asked how far we going...omg maybe I'll meet you tomorrow/maybe not!

    I will definitely be there on Saturday, I can walk there if I have to. There are events on Sunday as well, though they don't look as entertaining to me. I might go then too.

    Going to pass for tomorrow due to forecasted snow.

    Hi everyone, with 9 inches of snow forecasted tomorrow in Loveland and 11 inches tonight/tomorrow in Nederland, Kevin and I are going to change our plans for tomorrow. If others still want to head up, go for it! We are bummed- FDG Days sounds like such a hoot!

    Been to Nederland..so I know the place is not that big..It's just that I wouldn't mind having more particulars on where FDGD is on 1st Street. Also, I would be interested in the carpool location since I'll be traveling in from Summit County..I would pick up someone or hitch a ride. thanks (I'll have my lab with me.)

      Does your dog do well in crowds? There will be tons of people there.

      I read the FDGD website and what it had to say about dogs. I can't come without him. After all, we are hiking! Said not in or near tents. Where we will go from the tent so I can join the group?

    Be aware that snow is forecast for Saturday. The mountain roads are sure to be slick, so carpoolers will want to choose a good winter vehicle with snow tires. Be careful driving! Also be prepared for traffic and crowds. I'm not sure where to tell you to park, but there will be people directing traffic.

    I'm volunteering at the Brain Freezer Tent until noon. The Brain Freezer Tent is on 1st Street, I'm not sure where but 1st is only a couple blocks long. Let's meet there. Friday evening I will PM my cell phone number to people who are signed up to attend, in case someone is late and would like to meet up. The Hearse Parade starts at noon, so we won't want to wait around too long for stragglers but it is a small town so latecomers should be able to find us if they call.

    And as I mentioned, I'm volunteering until noon, so I would not be able to participate in a hike in the morning. But if you would like to do a hike before arriving at FDGD, there are a few spots in the immediate area that you might consider. The old Caribou mine site at the end of Caribou Road (which is a somewhat rugged road for the last few miles) has some hiking trails. They would be snow-covered, you'd probably want snow shoes. Let me know if you'd like more info on that.

    Someone should set up the carpool if you'd like to do that, I've never been to the carpool sites (and I wouldn't be on Saturday) so I wouldn't be much help with that. I would recommend allowing extra time for traffic and parking in Ned. The fun starts right at noon with the Parade of Hearses.
