Personal Comments:
When I opened a manufacturing consulting business in the early 2000s, I traveled widely from OH eastward through most of the NE United States.   During this time I became a frequent user of ECARS while on the road and came to appreciate the service that ECARS provided as well as the camaraderie of the NCS and users.  ECARS is a great resource, so as I approached retirement in 2011 I was happy to take on a more active role as a regular NCS.
