    I don't know why this just popped into my head today......

    I know how to make fire in a variety of ways, but I'm curious as to how long it takes others to prep and get a fire going?

    Roughly speaking from "this looks like a nice spot" to "right lets get the kettle on"

    I can take my time (sometime up to 30mins if I'm not in a rush) but I was thinking how many of the stages or how much faster I could do it IF I had to.

    Depends on a lot of factors.

    If you're talking about having all the gear ready, seconds, but going and fetching wood in an area well scavenged on a scout campsite easily half an hour to an hour.

    I'm impressed with the guys who can friction light a fire with a bow drill in just a few seconds.
