I think L. Foards idea of storage in remote cold places, such as the
antartica is the most feasable.  Even if frozen humans were not
recoverable, it would be nice to have a collection of animals and
plants that would be frozen for 1000 to 60,000 years.  Such a plan
is very feasable if one found a tunnel in some remote and cold
place, such as in the mountains of alaska, and just stored tissue
there.  I wounder if there are any closed mines in alaska that have
a temperature below 30 F ?  Doesn't seem like it would cost all that
much to buy the mineral rights of the mine and just loading the mine
up with biological material.  If security was a concern you might cave
in part of the mine when a section is full - that would be fairly good
protection if no costly materials were buried with the samples (i.e.
not worth anything enough for "grave robbers" to mess with the tissue
