The advice to have a mix of thicknesses sawn is good. Re- sawing thick slabs can be problematic and wasteful. Always include 8/4 stock for legs. Have an idea of what you will want to build with this lumber so you can make an educated plan of action.
Unless you will be air drying when the moisture content can get down to 6-8% you might consider finding a dehumidification kiln to bring the moisture content down.
Be very attentive to sticking the lumber correctly.
