Classic example, You walk one farm over with your 50 lbs. of bacon to trade for 5 barrels of corn.. The neighbor just bartered with someone and already has bacon but he's missing out on alcohol, which you heard is five farms over. you travel through the forest lugging 50 lbs of bacon and everythiing else you travel with to find the alcohol holder is vegetarian but needs some oil which you heard something about 5 farms over in the opposite direction... etc. etc.

A crew and I have been swapping goods for a couple a months now...for ex,fresh dairy and bread for pork and corn...or help sink some fence posts for a rummage through the garden.Then I met buddy who's a butcher and introduced him to buddy with a garden and so the story goes...remember that old commercial?...and they had two friends,and then they had two friends....any ways,Bartering works,and I can tell you for sure,that if there is nothing to barter with,then TRUST will be the last resort....take it as you will

A little electrical work for friend or family,I get beer.
But when SHTF,I have other options .
If you have what other people need,and you are at a point that trading those goods and services off for other goods and services,you will be ok.
Just don't stock up on silver,stock up on seeds.
I couldn't agree with you more on stocking up on seeds. Just make sure they're not the Genetically Modified seeds. I personally, have thousands of seeds and can grow anything that comes from the Earth
