These friends and business partners operate a Trading post in Hesperia, California. They earn a few thousand dollars a week by bartering their ways up to more expensive items. These gentlemen are entertaining and very good at what they do. They take their time and use the internet to reach the largest amount of potential traders. Once they obtain the best trade available, they continue to barter up until they reach the greatest trade.

Showing them how the trade will be a win-win situation for both parties; usually seals the deal. They barter for anything as long as there is a profit to be made.

Whether any of their children follow in their footsteps remains to be seen, but they are already showing signs by bartering with their friends. This show teaches as well as entertains the whole family.
