I agree, dont propose this to a wood logger :)

But yes, I did.

I have seen an installation where "ground" was floating somewhere
at 110 Volts AC. There was no way to tame it. We had to cut it.
Ofcourse we did it not on the wire but in the sockets and we got
a reasonable ground before we did.

Dont read in the books - and dont tell a lawer :)

The soil was extremly dry (not in europe) and the powerline was
extremly long...
