When Tori and I came back home we still saw some cars parked along the Highway…first time we have seen parking up to the rock cut. So It looks like the great weather produced a banner crowd.
I only live a couple doors down from where Trygve has his bomb proof house, and the shed were Bredo is in eternal rest. I remember hanging out with Trygve before he got booted out of the country, we sang some songs by his campfire and I got to hear some of his stories. He was the founder of the Boulder Polar Bear Club, and holds some records for sitting in cold water. His belief on the cold water is that it will prepare his body to be better adapted to being frozen when the time comes. Believe it or not, I directed the first news trucks to the site when the story first broke. I did not have a clue sitting with Trygve drinking wine, that behind us in the dopey metal shed was his gramps…just chillin’ as we were… albeit at a much cooler temp.
If you want to get a bit more of the story you really need to check out the movie.
