Virginia Tech and North Carolina State have joined up to provide a lumber drying workshop at the EXPO Richmond this April. For the afternoon of April 11th, Dr. Brian Bond and Dr. Frederik Laleicke will talk about what you need to consider as a small operator getting into lumber drying. We'll cover the lumber drying basics, different types of kilns and their capabilities/limitations, avoiding defects and the basics of controlling the drying process.

Thanks for the heads up.  I took your online wood drying seminar awhile back and I am planning the VT Solar Kiln build.
