My coax entrance panel is now hooked to its own series of ground rods.  I want 
to bond it and all of the Polyphaser arrestors attached to it to the utility 
ground rod.  If the easiest and shortest path to the utility's entrance ground 
rod is thru the interior basement of the home, can I, or should I use it?  I 
have a large gauge stranded ground cable running from my well pump to the 
service entrance ground rod and is very easy to hook to.  It runs across the 
the sill of the basement wall within several feet of the entrance panel, into 
the garage where it eventually ties directly to the ground rod. The alternative 
would be to run an outside wire around my house, across a double wide driveway 
and then into my garage to get to the utility ground.  Would it be safe, (or 
code) to use this interior ground wire as part of my lightning protection
