    There is a big coil of that coax cable sitting on Cate Rd Richland County. Its trash.
    It's not enough to simply tolerate the 2nd Amendment as an antiquated inconvenience. Caring for the 2nd Amendment means fighting to restore long lost rights.

    I can get away with things.. containing a level of charm makes it easy. ier. that and my levels of no care. I just enjoy typing things and checking in later in the day to see how they panned out. I won zero money today, and was stung by a wasp in the back of the neck trying to line up a putt.

    You can use that cable wire but i dont think you will be happy. I would use atleast 5/16 steel cable. If i was only doing two poles, i would put a large eye bolt at the top for wire and one lower for the guy wire. I would get guy wire tight to make sure pole doesnt move when you tighten top wire. Dead end wire on one pole. On the other pole get guy wire tight then On the top eye bolt i would have about a 4 foot piece of wire already attached to eye bolt as a way to secure wire. I would pull the long wire through eye bolt and pull as tight as you can with tractor. (Just watch other pole to make sure guy is holding and pole isnt leaning). After you get wire tight. Take the 4 foot piece and the long wire and hook together with wire clamps. (Poor mans Chinese handcuff). Cut excess wire off or use as an extra guy wire.

    A couple hundred bucks and it will last a long time.

    Not on here but yes same has happened to me many times(mostly w my teen driving school) , way I look at it is if they can live with it so can I I chalk it up to lesson learned and watch out

    But will say this, never had issue with ANYONE on SCD. Even had some great offers for help and materials/products over the years. From the ones I have dealt with on SCD all of been great folks and men of their words


    By way I ordered the 1/4” cable , should be here Friday according to UPS.

    The 1/4" span you got is certainly the superior option. Good choice.

    No, actually.. even par on the back, but my front nine was disgusting. I'm taking a day off before I come over to Sumter tomorrow to play.

    Didn't know it was playable again. I sure know they're dumping truckloads of money into it. Hope it turns out nice.
