Quote:Travel can be expensive. One man is using a unique way to pay for a trip as a challenge. Pennsylvania comedian Josh Sankey is on a mission to make a cross-country road trip from New York to Los Angeles with no other currency but bacon.

Sankey isn't carrying any cash or credit cards as he makes his cross country trip. He is paying for everything from gas to lodging by using uncooked bacon as currency. He set off on his trip with 3,000 pounds of the popular meat and he seems to be getting good deals with it so far.

Sankey has made some interesting trades so far along his journey. He was able to get a taxi ride in NYC, Jets tickets, lodging at stranger's houses who he met through Twitter, homemade moonshine and wine, jumper cables, gas money and more.

From the article:

Quote:Heineken reportedly approached him to take on the journey to prove just how popular, and valuable, a Heineken can be in Asia.

What the hell do I do to get approached by a major beer company for such a project? hmm.gif
