thanks all.. now nother question.. the fence I'm
hooking into on my neighbors property.. (also a
board fence) is leaning especially in the mid
section of it.. prob (I'm guessing totally) 8 rods
in length.. and is leaning to the north.. fence
runs east/west.. what are some possible remedies
for this situation? total "retampin

When we got a fence that wants to go north on us around here we try and push it back to the south just enough to make it act right. Please don't tell anyone I gave up an old secret of the south cause it may start that civil war thing again.

You might get by with retamping but another cause could be that the post have rotted off at the top of the ground too.

Your choice seems clear kelly, you either need to re-tamp the offending leaning posts or if that's out of the question, just accept that the earth leans a bit around there, get a flat shovel and re-grade the surrounding county to match the existing fence.. heh heh
