This is an interesting plan if we needed to raise money.  It has benefits
for all the players.

For the time being, I hope to supply the funds to build the resort portion.
 Profits from the resort will go to underwrite some of the activties (like
public relations) of the cryonics community.

Most of the people in cryonics that I have come in contact with over the
last 20 years seem to have interest in the things you mention.  We want to
offer things that are stimulating and make people want to associate with
each other.

Mike Perry wants to have a "Life Extension University" some day.

"Santa Fe" is a style of building popular around the southwest.  The walls
are tall adobe-style with flat roofs.  Sometimes you see the log-pole beams
sticking out of the wall.  There is a lot of rustic wood trim.

Its true that cryonics is a part of an overall life extension philosophy.
We have been thinking about featuring (or catering to people who are
interested in) life extension (which has many more followers than just
cryonics) and then introducing them to cryonics when they come for a
seminar or vacation.

Yes.    The over-all facility is actually several facilities in one.  Part
of it is a resort open to the general public.  Part of it is a community
for cryonicists.  The resort part generates the profit to underwrite some
of the cryonics-public-relations activities.  Some buildings can be used
both by customers of the resort and residents of the cryonics community.
For instance:  a gym, a spa, ball game courts, hiking trails, meeting and
conference rooms, a restaurant, open park-like areas along the creek.

There should be a nursing home and hospice in the cryonics community part
of the over-all facility.  

There also should be a place for the initial part of cryonics (not the full
suspensions, but a place for wash-outs to stablize the patients until
*their* cryonics service provider can take possession and complete the
transport and suspension.
