I guess I overdid it for one of my Tesla 'get togethers' when I drove five 8 ft ground rods radiating outward as much as possible and tying them all together with cable thicker than most cars use for battery cables. lol....Whatever I did seemed to work fine, and since I invited all my neighbors to come watch the fireworks.....got no complaints...
Overkill is always preferable to "underkill" when it comes to keeping

You can come over and play any time you like, except in Winter when the

coilers or other interested parties as long as you give me a couple days
Merry Christmas to all.
