Family of Four Embarks on Four Week Automobile Trip Spending Bitcoin Only
A family of four will spend only bitcoin while they travel the country for four weeks.
The stars of the Sovereign Living (www.sovereignliving.tv) reality show start their journey of 4,400 miles today.
The Blush family, comprised of John Bush, Catherine Bleish and their two children, will make the cross-country trip aboard their minivan, hosting five screenings of their reality show at stops along the way.
The Bitcoin-only trip begins in San Marcos, Texas.
The first major stop is in Washington, D.C. for the Bitcoin in the Beltway Conference hosted by Jason King of Sean’s Outpost, a homeless outreach and advocacy group. King recently finished a cross country run called Bitcoin Across America.
The next major stop is in Lancaster, New Hampshire for the eleventh annual Porcupine Freedom Festival.
The final stop will be in Kansas City over the July 4th weekend, just prior to the family’s return to Texas.
Catherine Bleish says she is “excited to test the practical reality of traveling with Bitcoin.”
The family plans to use Gyft.com to purchase gift cards for Whole Foods and Orbitz in cities where they cannot find Bitcoin friendly restaurants and hotels.
Along the way, the Blush family will document their travels through articles and daily live blogs online at BitcoinMagazine.com.
