    So Yesterday at about 3:30 I asked My Wife if She wanted to run up to Gold Beach and have some dinner and stay the night. So We get to Gold Beach at about 9:00 and go have dinner. I go to pay for dinner with My check card and the Waitress says it's declined /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif So then We try the Wifes and the same thing happens /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif So I wip out the last of the cash I had and pay /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I figured they had a bad machine or something. Then We go to get a room and the same thing happens /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Lucky for Me I had enough room on My credit card to cover that /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    So this morning We stoped in Cresent City at a bank We use to see whats up. Found out that the banks system was down /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif So the next time you take a trip make sure you can access your funds befor you go.

    Wow, I would think the bank would have some back-up systems in place. I've never heard of that before. Good thing you had some cash-in-hand.

    you probably bank with one of the local coastal or smaller banks. your lucky that you atleast could cover your trip with other funds.

    I make a lot of trips from vegas to portland area and that is one thing that I always have on my mind when passing through little podunk towns. so now I have two seperate bank accounts just incase.
