For my winter beverages I use those 6 ft bamboo poles from Home Depot.  I drive 
them about a foot into the ground.  Then use electrical tape and wrap it around 
the pole near the top and then hold the wire against it and then wrap a few 
more layers to secure it, insulated, onto the pole.  My poles are about 20 ft 
or so apart.  I use galv. electric fence wire, 17 ga, from Farm N Fleet.  It's 
real cheap at $17 per half mile and is stronger and doesn't stretch like 
copper.  Then in the spring I use my side cutters and cut the tape wrap job to 
release the wire from the pole and save the pole. I don't even try to save the 
wire; I just bundle it up and throw it out.  Phil  KB9CRY
