Yep. But mother nature WILL take the path she likes, making whatever
mess she chooses along the way. Faced with that choice in the building
that houses my shack, I did both -- rods around the building perimeter
connected by #4 to the shack ground and the breaker panel, and steel
conduit from the breaker through the building to the shack. Neither
path is as short as I would like, but the objective is to keep the whole
building as close as possible to the same potential.
And I completely agree with Jim Lux's comments.
