The Bacon Barter Team Visits Gadling In Chicago

Midway through their journey across the country, the Bacon Barter team pulled into Chicago last week for a visit to Gadling Labs. Led by funny man Josh Sankey, the travelers aim to voyage across the entire United States using only bacon as currency. That's for food, gas, lodging and any other necessity on the road.

We met up with Josh and his chase car on the streets of Lakeview and bartered away for the rights to a rooftop barbecue overlooking the city. The deal? Twenty-five packages of thick, delicious bacon for a steak barbecue and a floor to sleep on that evening. A real bargain as far as we're concerned.

Keep tabs on Josh and his cured-meat-loving compadres as they travel across the country here.
