Don't get me wrong — I do, body and soul, love bacon. But could I survive a cross-country road trip from New York to Los Angeles bartering my way across the country with such tasty, oily, crispy goodness?


Bon Appetit calls Josh Sankey's bacon-filled journey "an assault on American free market capitalism." He can trade bacon for a place to stay for a night, or for some football tickets — whatever he pleases, as long as the transaction's currency is bacon. You can keep up with his meat adventure via Twitter to find out if he's successfully bartered bacon for some other kind of food (maybe a nice vegetable?). Publicity stunt aside, we're curious -- what do you think he'll be able to get from state to state with his bacon bartering?
