OK, I want to add electricity to an outbuilding.

I was thinking 60amp circuit (just enough for lights, a few plugs for 
chargers, and maybe a garage door opener in the future.)

Here is the set up.  My shop has 200amp service.  The service panel is on 
the exact opposite side of the building as the new building.  So I would 
have about a 50' run, inside the existing shop, then a 65' run of buried 
cable to the new building.

A few questions...

One, what gauge wire do I need to run?

Should I do direct bury wire or conduit?

Am I missing anything?

Everything I know about knots, I learned from Alexander the Great.
