Can I bury a cat 5 cable along side my house to run to a better location before drilling through my siding?
 
Solution
The soil may damage the jacket of the cable. It likely will resist water but you don't want it wet all the time. They sell cheap drip irrigation tubing that is designed to be buried you could run your cable through that.

Really I suspect it will as a couple years so if you are willing to replace it every so often it won't hurt to bury it.

Many times the cable is stapled under the edge of the siding
