    I should mention that the author of this article is Australia and uses phrases that you may not be familiar with.

    An example is “SINGLE-WIRE EARTH RETURN LINES” which basically translates to “a thin hard to see electrical wire that you don’t want to run into”.Another is “paddock” which is a fenced off area for livestock (plus rocks, ravines, bulls, trees, etc) that you also don’t want to run into.My rule of thump for landouts is “Land in dirt and you won’t get hurt”! Been there done that several times. Fun!
