Gone to the Mountain Part 2

Unless the Panda Express counts, it looks like Austin hasn't left on his tweeted adventure yet.

And while Jake  seems to come down from the mountain, Austin has gone to one - a magic one.

Yup Mr. Austin was tweeted at Six Flags Magic Mountain

And what was he doing? Waiting for Superman (and no not the documentary).  He was in line for the roller coaster Superman: Escape from Krypton.

Ahh Austin....not sure how you and the biggest super hero in the DC Universe is going to go over with those Marvel's Agents of Shield.

Or is that the point?

Happy Passover

Happy High Five Day!

As you may remember the High Five is credited to LA Dogdgers player Glenn Burke.

Burke was the subject of OMG's Out Spotlight as the first gay baseball player.

9 dead, 3 seriously injured after avalanche on Mount Everest

Nine Sherpa guides were killed and three others were seriously injured Friday after a high-altitude avalanche on Mt. Everest, officials said.

Others were missing, but their numbers were not immediately known.

A group of about 50 people, mostly Nepali Sherpas, were hit by the avalanche at more than 20,000 feet, according to Tilak Ram Pandey, with the mountaineering department of the tourism ministry.

The avalanche took place just above base camp in the Khumbu Ice Fall.

The climbers were accounted for, Pandey said. "Rescue teams have gone ... to look for the missing."

Readying for climb

Between May 15 and 30 is usually the best window for reaching 29,028 foot peak.

Climbers and guides had been setting the ropes for the route, acclimating to the climate, and preparing the camps along the route, said Janow.

Climbers arrive in April to acclimate to the altitude before heading toward the summit of the world's highest mountain.

Ethnic Sherpas acts as guides for the mostly-foreign clients.

Can you imagine being a Sherpa for a living. Talk about a tough job.
