My next-door neighbors are a delight. My neighbor a quarter-mile away, DickHead, is not. DH likes to get drunk and savage the gravel roads with his 4-wheeler. If brodying in circles on the gravel roads doesn't make him feel better, he starts in on my land and my neighbor's land. DH has done an admirable job of irreparably pissing off every neighbor within a mile of me.
I don't like fences. I also don't much care for angry confrontations. I decided that a fence was the lesser of two dislikes. So my good neighbor and I put a fence around both of our properties. 3 wires on DOT-approved tee-posts fit the bill. Minimal eyesore, won't harm the critters (no barbs) and DH can't ride through it. And get this--both the wire and tee posts were made right here in God's America! Reasonably priced, too.
We slugged these posts in with a sledge. Yes, I know there's a tool made especially for pounding these in, but my standards are high and I wanted every post to be plumb and straight on the line. More control with a 10 lb. sledge.
Another of my neighbors complimented us on the fence job, and he plans to put one in also, to keep DH off his property.
