I've had a good time watching your journey progress. I agree with you milling isn't fun when its blooming hot out. Just for fun, I just checked a local retail hardwoods shop's prices, common grade Red Oak at 3.29 bf no price for elm.  I would guess  you could ask for more. Those boards would make folks a lot of nice live edge floating shelves, my wife has hinted at some  :)

It's this forum and all of the friends I've made on it that has made the journey the enjoyable adventure it has been!  

I don't plan to close this thread but I won't be as active on it for a few months as I have other projects I've been putting off while I've been milling (seriously, gotta get the basement done  :D :D )

Just looked up floating shelves, BRILLIANT IDEA! Maybe I can install some here and then advertise them so people see what they look like and go from there. 

I plan to pick up logs even though I'm not actively milling and you know I'll post them on the thread as I get them :) The fun part is that panicky feeling I've had that I have to get all the logs I can find has worn off. I now want to be a bit more selective in what I pick up and I feel I have a smidge more of an idea of what to look for and what to pass on which is a good feeling.
