I sent the email to Danielle. I had no idea Rob you were the Social Media Administrator for Honda Generators till I looked at your profile! Cheers!

Wish other companies would follow that example, being on a 3rd party forum! Least there is some sort of manufacture presence here. In that capacity you can respond to customer problems and take notes on future designs & features for the products.

All the best with much respect.

Mmmhmm...Thomas Hooker Brewery up in Bloomfield just north of Hartford. I usually get their Noreaster beer in a growler. Their open house is like 5-9pm and you drink right from the large fermentation tank...catch a good buzz, and with open house it normally features a charity, I think some greyhound or dog charity last time I went. You bid on prizes and it goes to that charity.

Whenever this survey thing happens ill try to coordinate a visit there as well.

The answer is beer...oddly enough the question is also beer!

Can't say I'm a big seafood person (though 99% of my family comes from South Portland/Bangor/Lewiston) but there is a place in Lewiston called Chickadee has some insanely delicious clam chowder and garlic haddock fillet. Rest of the family devours the shrimp and lobster rolls like its a food shortage!

been to the chickadee many times Bass.
My wife took some classes right up the road at the local U-Maine site. We would meet for lunch a few times a week at the Chickadee. never had a bad meal there. Good home cooking and always more than you can eat in one sitting,

All at a decent price.

You would not believe how much they value the data collected from these field surveys. Taking back direct customer facts, figures and comments to the design groups back in Japan has a very significant influence on the direction the development team adopts. Its takes a massive amount of time and money to fly over a group of engineers from Japan to the US, then visit with customers in a dozen locations for almost three weeks, but the data they bring back is priceless.

A big thanks to everyone who's helped (and will help) with this project.
