Be sure to get some sealer of the ends of those logs asap!. Also, you may want to look into a different spot then in your crawl space to dry them out once you do get them milled. It would be better if you were able to stack them in the garage or even under a lean-to in the back yard. in order for it to dry it really should have some fresh air moving in and around it.
Since your in Utah, If I was you, I would make a make shift lean-to in the back yard. then cover it with plastic, then install 2 fans. one pulling air in, the other pulling air out. this will give you plenty of air circulation and since you already have the heat it should dry rather quickly.
I am not an expert on drying stock, but its just a thought...
Confidence does not come from always being right. It comes from not being afraid to be wrong.
