Its been a while since I updated this thread mainly because we have had record amounts of rain here in the southeast this spring and summer and I need at least 5 days of dry weather before I can work on the range without making a mess and I have had very few of those. I have got most of the roots out and its pretty smooth. I'm not worried about making it "baseball diamond" smooth. As long as I can cut the grass I'll be satified. I still have some rocks to pick up (wish the grandkids lived closer). I'm still debating whether to go over it with my tiller. I am going to move the teeth on my box scrape up out of the way and just go over is a few times with just the blade. I'm watching the weather and if I see some pretty good chances of rain I'll sow the grass seeds. I figure the range is about 20,000 sq. ft. + or -. I plan to use a seed called "The Rebels" because its supposed to more hardy than some of the other blends. 20 lbs. is supposed to cover 5000 sq. ft. so I'm going to buy 120 lbs. I'm making my front yard bigger so I'll be using some of the seeds there. There is no way I can water the seeds on the range so I just hope we have a wet fall. One picture looking down range and one looking up range.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
