I recommend hiking off of the beaten path while in YNP. I read that if you hike one mile off the main road, you will get away from 90% of the tourists! My wife and I did this for most of the trip....

So far, I like what I hear! I assumed the pipe runs under the floor because the water pump and city water hookup are on the opposite side of the bathroom and kitchen. I have a service manual, but it...
