"Your house?  Really should solve the real problem."

That was a strange suggestion to solve the problem.

I live in the Sonora Desert:

Along with rabbits and Gambel Quail, http://tolweb.org/treehouses/?treehouse_id=4543, and snakes, we have about 10-20 pack rats per acre.  Once in a while a snake will go into a rat's nest.  The coyotes take care of the rabbit population, cats, and stray small dogs.

So far, I like the 3/4 inch flex tubing the best

Burying coax is tough digging,  The soil here is what they make Adobe bricks with.

Thanks for the suggestion K0IZ.

There was one store in Tucson that carried 3/4 inch flex alum tubing, Lowes.  There are 3-4 Lowes on Tucson, buy only one stocked it.

I made the trip this afternoon and picked up a 100 bundle of it.

Now the fun begins figuring out how to get a rope thru it to pull the coax thru.
