Because we live out in the "boonies" we have satellite TV and because our house in right in the middle of the trees, we had to run the cable way out across the front yard to the clearing. So for quite some time, the cable has laid across the ground. This leaves it vulnerable to getting ran over by the lawn mower as well as it gets driven over everyday by vehicles. So Tool Belt Jim dug out his trencher machine and buried the cable again. The first time we did this we ran some PVC pipe and put the cable inside the pipe. Only problem was when something happened to the cable, it was no easy task to dig up the pipe. And when we switched satellite carriers, they wouldn't use the same cable the previous company used. Thus, the cable ran across the front yard until today. Hopefully, there will never be a need to dig it up again.
