Hello all,

I have a friend that lives in Nebraska and has a new house. He wants to put 
up his 40 ft universal freestanding tower towards the back of his house lot 
where there seems to be a lot of Gumbo soil. In the warmest summer days, it 
like the soil cracks a lot quite a ways down, like maybe 6-10 inches. His 
question is should he be putting his tower there ever, even in a 4x4x5 hole? He 
isnt looking for the leaning tower of pisa anytime soon. Whats the experience 
with this soil been on this group? Bring in better soil to fill it? Change the 
location? Thanks in advance. 73
