Yikes…this thread really went sideways for no apparent reason. Here is an article that I published on air drying lumber: http://www.wwgoa.com/articles/one-great-tip/should-i-buy-my-lumber-green-/

I would get a moisture meter and measure the MC of this wood, and some kiln dried lumber that is stabilized in the current humidity. The mc values might be closer together than you think. If you can just get the wood to the driest spot possible (indoors, off the ground, etc.) and run a fan on it and run a dehumidifier in the room you should be able to get it to a point within a few weeks where you can feel comfortable working with it.
