Man Barters Bacon To Pay For Cross-Country Trip

A New York man is making his way across the country- via bacon. That's right, the man is traveling from New York to Los Angeles with no cash or credit cards. That's because he's paying for his trip with- wait for it- bacon!

Josh Sankey is using a refrigerated trailer full of 3,000 pounds of bacon provided by Oscar Meyer to barter for everything he'll need to make the trip. Sankey is using the bacon to trade for gas, lodging and entertainment while on the trip. I'm assuming he doesn't need to trade for food as he's pulling a load of bacon. has the story of his journey.
