One Bag Systems are the way to go!
Secure a water source. Set up gravity filtering system. I hate pumping.
Then I set up my rig right away. I have an OBS system in a compression bag except my tarp is separate. It makes me happy to have a large dry spot around my rig so it goes up first.
I then change into dry clothes.
I prefer to set in my hammock and fix dinner/eat/hydrate. Plus have my morning coffee that way before Im even out of the sleeping bag (another thing that makes me happy).
Tidy up, hang pack/boots on hammock suspension but have experimented with gear lofts, jury is still out on that.
I usually then go to sleep.
I rarely have a fire unless I'm in a group but mostly I'm alone or with one other. My Bush Buddy makes up for having a fire. I've even dried socks with it.
Packing up is quick now that I compress it all in one bag.
Edit: I left out that I do hang a bear bag hopefully before dark.
