Connect a new outdoor outlet to an existing outdoor outlet?


I have 4 outdoor outlets that surround my house, all of which are connected to a 15 amp breaker. I want to put a fifth outlet at the end of my driveway. Could I buy some 14-2 burial cable and hook it up to an existing outlet and then run that wire to a new outlet. The end of my driveway is only 25 feet from the nearest outlet. Thanks for your time
