Great job compiling this list of travel social networking sites. I have never been to Gusto; I'll have to check it out. Another up-and-coming travel social network site is Go-Lo.net.

Everest base camp trek
Everest Base Camp trek has drawn adventurers since Mount Everest was first surveyed
in the late 19th century. Mt Everest known as 'Sagarmatha' in Nepal and 'Chomolungma' in Tibet
is popular dream destination among all adventure lovers. Everest Base Camp trekking is slightly
demanding and requires a fair level of fitness before you begin. Most of the trail lies at the altitude
over 3 000m, it is also essential that you trek slowly to avoid the possibility of AMS.
