Well This Is Different

Semper Gumby (Always Flexible) is our motto for our RV life.  It applies when we travel and also when we do our workamping job here at the COE.  We started out pin hunting and got pulled off that task to take on one of higher priority.  It has to do with these boxes.

The COE purchase a bunch of new electronic cash registers to replace the old, tired and worn out units in the Visitor Center and the day use areas.

They had to be programmed and adapted to COE specific charges.  Plus the programming had to be made simple for multiple people to easily use them. 
We plunged into the job, Marti used her IT skills to not only set up the registers, but develop an easy to use set of instructions for the operators.
I used my skills as a laborer to pull the units out of the boxes, unwrap them and plug them in, then dispose of the packing.  That is what I do best, as to programing electronic things, it's best for me to keep my fat fingers far, far away.
We got them all done and then moved them to a storage building to await distributing them to the various gate houses in another month or so to get ready for the summer season.
We never know what we'll do next, but we enjoy variety because we sure get lots of it here.   :c)
Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.


  1. Always fun to have new challenges, looks like you (and Marti )took care of it very well!

  2. No job too big or small you two really are flexible.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Oh cool, new cash registers to ring up "4 bucks"!

    1. Nope, it's now 5 bucks. All the prices have increased.

  4. Remember that variety is the spice of life. The Government went shopping? Wonder what those new machines cost.

  5. I bet they were overjoyed to have somebody with IT skills to take over for them. That would not be me - I'd be helping you unpack.

  6. Boy are they lucky to have a work camper with those kind of IT skills. Big bucks saved there. Oh and of course her helper too!

  7. I notice the $1 increase, that sure will pay for the New registers. 20% increase not to shabby.

  8. It took me a minute for this to register. Then I realized Marti was cashing in on her previous experience. Well done and a credit to the COE.
