66South.com focuses on explorers from yesterday and today, their journeys, and the technological tools used to undertake their journeys. These explorers travel to many different frontiers -- scaling mountains, traversing oceans, deserts, rivers, and polar regions; they unearth major archaeological finds; they pioneer the fields of science and engineering; and they push the envelope of outer space.

Intellectual and spiritual explorers are also celebrated!
