Safety Tip: Greasing the Landing


Held in Nederland, Colorado, each year since 2002, Frozen Dead Guy Days celebrates Grandpa Bredo, whose body lies frozen on dry ice in a Tuff Shed above town. Among the many events are the Coffin Races. Teams in costume race with a coffin and ‘corpse’ in tow through a course full of obstacles, mud, snow, and other racers. What began as a local’s event has blossomed into a shindig that in 2016 attracted an estimated 22,000 revelers. Readers Digest called it one of the “Top Five Winter Festivals in the Country,” while readers of USA Today proclaimed it one of the “Top 10 Best Cultural Festivals.” Heck, it’s even been written up in the New York Times.
