Internet sharing in the boonies

I live in the boonies ... I have good line of sight to a wireless provider so I have excellent Internet. My good bud lives over the ridge, through the tress and down the hill ... ~1/2 mile away. He can't get any internet other than a telephone modem. I want to help him out and try to share my connection with him. We tried 900 mhz wireless but it doesn't get there. There's a hilltop 300' away where a wireless antenna could maybe "see" his house thorugh the trees. There's also the possibility of runing 2500 of COAX and using a cable modem at each end (except we'd have to cross the "road" (private road ... could be trenched). Any ideas ??? he's desperate.
