Free Wilderness Survival Course tips article. FREE BUSHCRAFT TIPS: Keeping your fire going when faced with a downpour

As we all know fire is an integral part of Bushcraft and has many uses, not just to provide personal heat but also to cook over, purify our water, make our glue... the list goes on. But if we do not have a very well established fire a quick downpour can put all our efforts to waste. One of the tricks that we use is to build what we call a fire shelter.

Firstly you need to find four reasonably sized (double finger thick) forked sticks and drive them into the ground to form each corner of a square. Then rest two further sticks across from one fork to another, so that you have a square with two sides open, two closed.

This then provides a platform to lay thicker (arm thick) logs across. All of the sticks and logs should be green to prevent them from burning. This method will protect your fire from the elements but can also be used to store further wet kindling on top. As the heat from the fire rises it will help to dry out your fuel at the same time. Make sure you build the construction very sturdy though as you don't want it falling down and smothering your flames!
