9,000 BF of WO logs on a truck would be a ticket to jail here, more like 7000 and that is pushing it. The problem becomes axle weight. 

What about just buying some WO lumber from a circle mill?

Southside, yes but they'd have to mill it to my sizes.  That means they have to have the logs to start with.  There is a circle mill I've worked with before but he doesn't have the logs I'd need, and he's pretty busy/backed up for at least a couple months.  If I had the logs, I could better control the process- that is I could mill them right off, and get them drying.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

If you can't find what you need there is a circle mill over this way that saws white oak. I would be happy to help with the drying if that helps to avoid shipping a bunch of water halfway across the country.
