There's plenty around with more knowledge than me, and we all do things differently.
Keeping a fire in the rain isnt as hard as it sounds, I always try taking or finding a piece of roofing iron, even a metal garbage bin lid works. Try keeping your wood dry and coals covered and your mostly there. I always try to tarp my wood or put it into hollow logs, we camp in the forest a bit and had a stash of wood in the forest not far from camp, just enough for a few hours, our first nights wood I call it. All the wood we gathered was wet so luckily I could split some wood to get to dry stuff then just keep adding and drying it. Heres a picture I took of me drying wood over xmas new year, once dry I put it under the tarp and life was easier, we ended up having enough dry wood to offer our neighbours some dry stuff to get started and they got their wood dry and under cover too.
My wife found it amusing, the guys in the next camp were there as long as us so we obviously made friends and had the occasional drink, new years eave it was decided their camp was for a few drinks as they had little kids, most people when going to somebodies place take a plate or a bottle of wine, nope I took a log.
The tin this time was an old roadworks sign I found in the scrub and thats whats on top of the stack to hold other wood, also works really well if the wind gets up you put it onto your fire acting as a wind guard to help stop sparks and slow wood burn down, I also used it to shelter my camp oven 1 night.
Heres a picture of the little python I caught too
, released totally unharmed, the boys not mine so I blurred his face.
