    5 minutes of set up...and 1 hour of tweaking and fine tuning

    Never timed myself, but I'd say with tarp, hammock, UQ/TQ probably 5 minutes or less. I'm rarely hurrying to setup though as even in bad weather the only "rush" is getting the tarp up. If the weather is nice and I arrive at camp early enough it could take me hours to get everything setup as I'll put up my hammock first and end up taking an unplanned nap.

    Depends on how much I hurry:
    No hurry, just "having at it" about 4 - 5 minutes.
    Hurry, REAL hard: about 7 - 8 minutes.
    Hurry, AND paying attention to what I'm doing: about 3 minutes.
    Hurry AND showing off: as in 'Hey, watch how fast I can set up!" about 10 minutes, if I'm lucky, usually much longer! add 3 - 5 minutes per person (over 1) watching.

    But then, I do set up a LOT! about 12 times so far this year, & this year has been a slow year.
