Dry (dead) wood never really gets 'wet' when exposed to normal rainstorm. I use a SOLO woodburning stove quite regularly. I also carry a firestarter. 99% of the time I don't need to use the firestarter if the wood is wet. As long as it is short and thin it will burn.

My main use of a woodburning stove is while sea kayaking. The beaches are littered with sunbleached bits of firewood. I collect this wood also from spots that are affected by low and high tide and even though some of the wood has been wet for hours it does not have an issue with burning.
