Bringing Home the Bacon

The great 'Bacon Barter' is all about comedian Josh Sankey's trip from New York to Los Angeles trading 3,000lb of bacon for food and lodging.

Josh (photo below) is trying to barter his way across the country, from New York to Los Angeles using only thick cut bacon as currency.

Sponsored by Oscar Mayer, Sankey will travel to 12 American cities trading some 3,000 pounds of thick cut bacon.

The promotion is Oscar Mayer's way of advertising their new brand of bacon.
The promotion includes searching for bacon lovers who will trade food, a place to sleep and whatever  he needs on his road trip for 'bricks' of the company's newest offering 'Butcher Thick Cut Bacon.'

The goal is to get to LA by September 23.
He says,'I'm driving from NY to LA with no cash and no cards -- just a trailer full of Butcher Thick Cut Bacon to barter with you for food, lodging and everything else I need.
'It's all to find out if America loves this bacon as much as money!'
