I tend to estimate that it takes about an hour to dig the latrine, settle
the horses, set the wards, etc. and the usual setting-up-camp things. If
you've hacked up the silly lagomorph before boiling him, that doesn't
sound unreasonable- but maybe I'm misled by modern cooking times? Now, if
you're roasting him, it should take longer and
you'd need a bed of coals.
