They have finally done it. Driving across country with no money and no credit cards. Josh Sankey is freeloading his way across the US armed with nothing more than a truckload of bacon.
Oscar Mayer supplied enough bricks of Butcher Thick Cut Bacon
fill his refrigerated truck.
Sankey is literally hauling a trailer full of 3,000 pounds of
bacon from New York to L.A., going coast to coast with zero cash,
cards, or checks. He is relying only on the goodness of Americans
and the goodness of bacon. He offers bacon to finagle whatever he
wants from whomever he wants and so far it's working.
Sankey kicked off the cross-country adventure at the Jets' opener,
crashing the tailgate party with a red wagon load of bacon. His
goal was to get tickets to the game by trading bacon. He stacked
his odds with Camille Burford, host of The Movie Show. They scored
two seats. He went on to Maryland, and is now through Charleston.
I imagine when he needs a snack, he just throws a few rashers
on the engine block to heat them up.
