[TowerTalk] going under a drive way

You can purchase a cheap kit at the hardware store to "water Drill" under
pathways.  I have done it a few times and to drill under a 3'6" path took me
all of 10 minutes using this system.

Well, it's a slow and messy process, but since you have access to each side
of the drive and some depth, you can "drill" a hole with some PVC pipe and
leave the pipe in place for use as a conduit.
What's needed is a nozzle of some kind at the "drill" end of the pipe, and a
garden hose connection at the other.  The nozzle could be a PVC pipe cap
with some small holes drilled in the end.
Water pressure will wash away the soil ahead of the nozzle.  Use stiff PVC
sections with fittings that can be screwed together.  Add more sections as
you work the pipe under the drive.  If you run into a rock, you're "done"!
Try another location.
