For the fourth year in a row, we are operating our home as a B&B for folks attending the NASCAR race in Bristol. This weekend is the "Spring Race" - which is not as big of a deal as the race in August, but we are still running full. This weekend we'll have an interesting mix of folks - a recently-deployed serviceman from Maryland and his 6yo son, a retired couple from Florida, a father and two sons from California and a few others from somewhere I can't remember. We will be sleeping in our camper in the backyard.
I've always thought it would be fun to own and operate a B&B. This lets me do it just two weekends a year. We will make $1700 this weekend. Sure, I have to do lots of house-cleaning, but I need to clean up the house twice a year anyway, right?
