Why Frosty?

RE: Why Frosty?
I don't know why Forrest used Old Fred at one point. Maybe because it was for a localized West Yellowstone newspaper article, Forrest was concerned that using his "real" nickname of "Frosty" was too specific and perhaps derogatory to his memory. So he used Fred, instead. But substituted "Old" for "Ole" as a private joke.

However, I have used Frosty as a key hint in at least one solve, so maybe Forrest returned to the "real" nickname to add a hint to a book that was going to be published in New Mexico, mostly for New Mexico readers. Just speculating, of course.
