Do you provide flak jacket?    :D   Sorry, I have to bust on everyone East of Lansing. 

Good luck finding someone over there, I am sure somebody will answer up shortly.

First place to look would be the "find a Forester/Sawmill" section, the button is at the upper right hand corner of every page.
We have a few members out your way, and I'll also send you an IM with info on a newer member that is out your way and might be able to help you out.
Oh, Welcome to the forum as well! 8)
Can I ask what it is you need cut?

Welcome Joe.

As Furby mentioned, check the "Find a Forester" link; there are a  few established portable mill operators nearby.

Posting more info in this thread may get some of the hobby sawyers to come forward. Some of the typical questions that will likely be asked are : Qty and size of logs (diameter inside bark, small end), species, intended use?, bucked to length?, Clean?, All in one place?, in an accessible spot for milling?

Good luck
