My husband is a retired electrician and I run the attendance office at Yosemite High School. We live in Oakhurst, California just outside of Yosemite Natl Park. A friend in the area has just started renting his place in this same manner you are and suggested we rent our little quest house. That gave me the idea to look for a place in the Portland area for this summer instead of staying in a hotel, which can be very expensive,or sleeping on my son's couch. He is a nurse in Portland.
