Here in the Texas clay soils, installing a ground rod is pretty easy,
if you have water handy.  Simply put the hose on trickle, lay it right
where the ground rod is to go, and start stabbing the ground with the rod--
up/down/up/down -- each time, the rod will go in farther, and the
water fills the hole.  The last few feet have to be hammered, but
it is very easy.

It'd be an interesting experiment. Again, as virtually any other method, wet soil makes the installation easier.
