And in the words of singer, songwriter Garth Brooks, “That smell of freshly cut grass makes me think of Friday night football in high school. The cutting of the grass reminds me of the August practice.”

The amount of time between the moment I heard about StartupBus to the minute I stepped on the bus was about eight hours – and I was asleep for about six of that.
I’d heard about StartupBus in 2011 from Anthony, the boss of a friend who worked in Cleveland. Anthony was one of the original members of the first 2010 StartupBus trip. At the time, I had been to several meetups and had gotten to know a lot of the programmer type folks in the Cleveland area. I had actually met Anthony briefly at a previous hackathon weekend.
