    So it's pronounced <<Tran-yah>>?
    Huh. I've always called it a ''Tran-GEE-a'' -- Rhyming with the prehistoric mother-continent, Pangaea.
    Still a great spirit burner in any language.
    In the finale scene of the Star Trek, TOS, episode ''The Corbomite Maneuver'' -- Actor Clint Howard, as 'Balok' toasts a new frendship between his species and The Federation -- giving Shatner, as Kirk, a space-tiki drink he calls 'Tranya.' [It's apricot puree from the prop dept.] Howard later said he was allergic to apricots, but had to drink it anyway.

    @Spiritburner , Ross,

    Many thanks for sharing these two excellent videos!! I have added them to my favorites, on YT!! Excellent stuff, and from now on, "Tran-Yah" it is!!!

    Interestingly, the Trangia 25-4 is one of my favorites, too, along with the red, non-stick set that is similar in setup. My very first Trangia was that red non-stick, in fact! Thanks, again, and God Bless!!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    OOOPS!! I missed the edit time! But, here's a shot, from CASG #10, which shows my Trangia Tribe, as well as the one Trangia clone I own:

    Fun to see all the stoves that each Stovie brought for show and tell day!! I hope we can do another CASG soon!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    PS- I recall when I bought that Trangia 25, red kettle set! It was in Prescott, AZ, at an Outfitters that is, unfortunately, no longer there. He made me a great deal on the NIB Trangia set, as well as a NIB Optimus 111T, because he said, "Nobody is interested in these old stoves, and I just want them out of here"!!! However, when I got the Trangia home, I must have used some really crappy alcohol in it, because it smoked horribly, and sooted up the pots badly!! I then and then decided that all the bad reviews I'd read in the US Backpacking Press had been true, and that alcohol was a horrid and nasty fuel. MAN, am I glad to have finally learned the truth about Trangia and Meths, once I found CCS!!

    And there I see one of the chinese wannalookalike Trangia - I have one battered and one nearly new, the were nearly as for free but still crappier than the Optimus 88 imitations.
