The farmers markets too… so many tourists don’t think about it ahead of time but the weekly large market on Sunday is obviously all cash. The nearby ATM does quite a good transaction fee amount I’m sure on Sunday’s with a line 10 deep to take out cash :lol:.

We get a lot of people up here who don't even have cards on them, much less cash.  Apple pay or Google pay.

Cash definitely seems like it's on it's way out to be honest.  Extremely small number of cash transactions these days, to the point that it's not even worth having a cash office at the ski area anymore.

 

Given ski area prices (and those of many other sports/games) I can see why.  But spending $3 for coffee and a donut at Sandy River Farm Supply down the road makes cash the simple answer.

There’s a ton of small transactions too though, hand and toe warmers take are the largest selling items and they are less than that coffee and donut.  Most people buy the big pricey stuff like lift tickets or lessons online ahead of time. It’s the smaller items like F&B, coffees, hand warmers, a face mask, a beer, fridge magnet or post card, that make up a lot of transactions.  Obviously still not cheap (marked up) but most single transactions a $20 can cover.  People just don’t carry it.

Its also a large enterprise so you aren’t worried about the transaction cost to the bank for the business like you would a local coffee joint.  I can see the mentality of just “put it all on the card this trip and we’ll deal with it later.”

I see people paying for small items with their cards, even a cup of coffee. Last year when we went on our fishing trip one of the guys didn't have a nickel on him and we needed cash to tip the mate and the guy that filleted our fish. He ended up going to an ATM. they're pretty much everywhere these days.

:lol: I bet we'd be surprised who uses Venmo already.  That's also helped take cash out, hear that a lot around here too.  Coffee shops in town or getting beers... "I'll just put it on my card and you guys can Venmo me" and often it seems like the money is already transferred before the bill is paid.  Pretty sure my sister in NYC uses Venmo on a daily basis for sharing coffees, lunch, happy hour, whatever.  Even buying lunch from street vendors they seem to split it that way.

Needed two more innings of the bullpen fun for sure.  We are getting screwed out of 4 innings of absolute mayhem between these two bullpens today.

It was good entertainment, one of 162, onto tonight.

I was wondering if anyone would follow my post . Good job to you and Dendy. That was a game Yanks would have lost earlier in season . Going to be a battle these last 43 games for sure.

Yeah the Sox win that one in the first half of season, lol.  Flip flops.

Pretty even game, Yanks took it.  Both bullpens just try as hard as possible to urinate down their legs.  Kiki in the 9th swung badly at ball 4.
