Yeah i think Les is right - plant a nice row of trees and staple the wire to them in a few years.
If the posts you have were cut full of pitch, they'll char good - otherwise if they're wintercut, they'll soak up leftover oil. Never had any last that long tho.
The problem is right around ground level, where bugs can find both oxygen and moisture IN the post. Prevent that and the post will last.
