To answer some possible follow-up questions, I don't have the space at this time for a log deck and I don't have any support equipment for loading.  The current best option appears to be loading ramps and post winch.
The first page of my thread has many pics of the winch set-up I built for my mill. May give you some ideas.

Thank you Ray.  I also have that thread bookmarked.  Very useful and you give good specifics about sizing and details of the build. Will certainly be using as much inspiration.

Well??  All things considered, we should be seeing some sawdust off your mill by this evening.  :)  Hows it going?
