What would you do if you won the state lottery? Bryon Woods, a Texan diesel mechanic used his US$49 million win to buy a piece of American history while simultaneously fulfilling his wife's childhood dream of sleeping in an authentic tee pee tent.
50 miles west of Houston, Woods bought and restored the Tee Pee Motel, a group of 11 tan teepees, 10 of which have been renovated to include modern amenities including barbecues, air conditioning, satellite TV and high-speed internet access.
"Woods decided not to advertise, instead relying on a website, a page on MySpace and word of mouth," the Canadian Press said. "And it didn't take long for word to spread."
The Woods couple wasn't in it for a profit; this business was all about passion to them and living their dreams, having something no one else has.
