Support GoXplr

GoXplr is an expensive website to keep running. This is not a typical blog. We have a popular blog along with many popular maps. There is nowhere else online where you can find maps of every covered bridge, lighthouse, waterfalls, etc. in New England. Fees are high for website hosting, email marketing, mapping software, and additional plugins to keep things running. Please consider joining our Premium Substack. Thank you so much!
